Female head and portrait study, 20"X20", acrylic on paper, 2012
My face studies are focusing on sadness and happiness. Abstract background is made with poured, smeared and splattered paint. The ground is interesting to view due to it's ability to evoke images of landscapes, figures, faces, etc. I've re-arranged abstract landscape parts as well as human heads from different paintings. There is a more dramatic charge to these visual elements in collages.
Born in Russia in 1975 I attended art lessons since the age of 13. With my family's support I continued my art education in Canada. I completed undergraduate studies at OCAD. In 2003 I received my masters from University of Waterloo. I currently live and work in Ontario, Canada.
