About the authentic technology
In addition to the author’s handwriting, I also use my own special technique for creating designs, combining two classical methods of painting on silk – so-called hot and cold batik.
In the cold batik, as in the classicism, clear outlines predominate, and painting itself is located between them, forming some kind of stained-glass panel. It is characterized by the clearness and accuracy and can convey calm, balanced, measured emotions. This technology could be used, if one would like transferring to silk majestic stained-glass panels in the cathedral of the holy family of Gaudi, that cause sincere trembling, or something like the famous Parthenon with its elements of the Ionic order, indicating the thoroughness and accuracy of Phidias’ design.
In the hot batik the artist reserves a figure by wax, passing from one layer to another. Foaming waves in a storm, the flying birds, an arisen to the racks horse – those are ideal heroes for the pictures of hot batik. In this technology, it is possible to reproduce on the silk famous “The Starry Night” of Van Gog or “The Ninth Wave” of Aivazovsky. Impressionists would appreciate abstractness and versatility of the obtained image, and seascapists – its liveliness and artistry.
But what to do if one desires to express the tender beauty of relations, and stormy emotions in the same image? After testing the traditional methods of batik, I understood that my emotions and the relations can be transmitted at their intersection, combining both methods: in such way, my author’s technology was born. Using it I managed to bring to life the images from my head which won’t be possible to recreate in any other genre. It combines all: graphics, water color, and oil painting… But the most essential thing, in my opinion, is that batik is a sensual painting. Everything depends on the mood, character, contemplation of nature. An artist sketches not so much by brush, as by heart! And batik cannot be better as a technology for expressing versatility of feelings.
About “Kaleidoscope” collection
If one looks into the oblong tube, similar to the small telescope, it is possible to see bright symmetrical mosaics from the glass, which resemble South Rose window of Notre Dame Cathedral, appearing by wonderful means.
In my childhood this toy caused a real delight. It was enough to turn it around the vertical axis and picture changed. As many times as you like. Not only amusing but also incomprehensible how this indescribable beauty is obtained? Now I know that kaleidoscope is an optical toy. Inside it, there are small colored glass pieces and along its longitudinal axis, three mirror surfaces are established. Colored glasses are reflected from the mirrors, creating unique patterns and elegant geometric ornaments. However, sensation of the magic that emergent in the childhood and feeling of surprise did not disappear despite the adult knowledge.
I personified the image of miraculous kaleidoscope in my figures. But instead of the colored glass, I used as the puzzles elements… of butterflies. Those, depicted on the foulards of “Kaleidoscope” series, exist also in nature. For instance, a butterfly called Papillio Maackii is one of the most beautiful butterflies in the world. It is the most ancient butterfly in Russia. For me, it represents the symbol of the expectation of love, and the name its family speaks for itself: you will be so popular that fans will fall on your tail. And you will definitely feel butterflies in your stomach for someone special!
