Painting still-lives is a kind of relaxation for me. Therefore I often devote myself to still-lives after finishing any difficult series. When I observe lighting of still-life objects, changing of their colour, I get merged with them and feel their quiet life. It is interesting for me to paint still-lives, to select objects for them. Sometimes still-lives are created by the life itself and sometimes I see any interesting object and start immediately to select any surrounding composition for it in my mind.
In the process of painting still-lives I try to reproduce reaction of their forms on light and air environment, their vision. But I feel that the art itself transfers a sort of substance into the space – magic Sfumato inspired by time breath. Such time, both on picture and in real life, both flexible and solid, shows a sacral world to us. Forms vibrate, search for their place and get anxious in case of failure to find it. I try to show such anxiety and breath of nature by means of draw-downs, light and colours.
