The author’s method does not include narration as such as usual. The artist makes a choice to create a direction of the visual in the absence of a clear conceptual component. Combine markers of the “old masters” technique and symbols of the modern world creates a unique stylistic. At the same time, the eclectic atmosphere of the works contains of the iconic images of different centuries, which coexist all together. The artist under the layers of painting encrypted unreadable characters, similar to personal, non-representative memories. Hence, each work is self-sufficient, always with its final statement: these are not puzzles or fragments that need to be grouped into something solid. Compositionally and plastically the artworks united by its attitude to the picturesque space. The artist creates her own fantastic image of the world, first she it is needed to be destroyed, later it will be created again. In the reality built by the author, there is no room for flaws and distortions. The characters reached a level of harmony with respect to the environment, but at the same time everything is at a state of disturbing uncertainty, in tense waiting for an unknown. At the same time, the cycle of life in the world is impetuous. The collapse of the old foundation starts the process of forming the fundament of a new reality, where the hinge dolls can be reassembled. The artist synthesizes the sensations of destruction and creation into a single emotional fusion and transmits it to the canvas.
