    Description

    Investigation of various aspects of human nature and trying to convey it through my art has been the focus of my recent artworks. This painting continues the series of such artworks.
    People, like everything around us, exist inside a certain context, constantly interacting with it, changing under its influence. This is especially true for such artistic professions like a singer, an actor, a dancer, who often relive someone else’s story during a performance, obscuring for the moment their own.
    This young woman is a ballerina, who just finished series of performances. She was transforming from a character to character with not a lot of time left to be herself.  
    It was interesting for me to take her out of context, to remove all unnecessary details, to focus on her. She doesn’t need any accompaniment, she shines by herself.

    A cappella

    This is another fine piece from a great artist. Valeria, 'the pianist' is such a beautiful piece and this has that same moving quality with the subject captivating the viewer. Great job.

    Entropy

    This painting is so fascinating and really does illustrate the concept of entropy from high energy to an final stage of existence. I think of elements like life forms and atomic particles spiraling into rest and final dissolution. But what mysterious force energized elements into life in the first place? I know the easy answer, but what about the difficult one?

    Interstellar DNA

    I love this painting because of the ideas it inspires. It is always mind blowing how the ultimate macrocosm embodies the microcosm, as well as the tiniest building blocks where laws of physics defy intuitive expectations. Things we think of as non living are shockingly intertwined with what we call living and the beginnings -- and ends -- of all elements in the universe are the same. There was a discovery reported on the other day about a very strong non-regular deep space burst. In the past these were resolved to be pulsars, quasars, etc, but this one is unknown. This painting makes me wonder about all these amazing things.

    This is so beautiful, everything about it is perfect. If a painting stays with me after I've viewed it is great in my view and this certainly does that, one of the best in July for sure.

    You can definitely see the dappled sunlight effect on the rocks. The use of soft and hard edges and loose brushstrokes defines the objects and lets to viewer mentally fill in the detail.
