Large Size Paintings.

Most of the time I get inspiration from nature. Even when I paint people, animals or objects.

My working day begins with a walk in a nearby park near the river or up the nearby hills. There I find my breath and the correct view of things.

It so happens that I do not paint landscapes from nature, but prefer to create a bird's-eye image of earth, water, sky and plants, as if hovering over them and finding drama and poetry in their interaction. Such a kind of metaphysics in the landscape.

I bring impressions from travels or impulses to the composition of a landscape given by some private small event.

The landscape SPRING BY THE SOUTH SEA was painted from my imagination after my travels in the south of France or Italy when almonds are in bloom, the sea is cold, and the red soil is not yet covered with new shoots everywhere.

The landscape SILVERY EUCALYPTUS’ ALLEY was painted from my imagination after my trip in Greece. Light slender tree trunks and their blue crowns, as if always fluttering in the wind, look amazing and even incredible under the bright southern sun against the background of lilac rocks.

The landscape HILLTOP  IN TIME OF BLOOMING was painted from my imagination after my morning promenades in the gardens on the hill near my studio in Prague. The cherry plum tree is the first to bloom. Then a gentle chorus of apple trees enters on the eastern side of the hill. It seems that nature is dancing its beautiful dance.

The artwork was painted with a palette knife and brushes in several sessions.

SITTING PRETTY

SITTING PRETTY
Set with BLUE STRIPES.
Last year I created this series with seated nude models against a white background using Art Deco motifs.
One of the three works has found its home in Italy.
It seems to me that this series is very "interior". So let me show these three works in a possible real space.

NEWS LETTER Lose yourself in a Paradise garden.

Dear Art Lover

March 2021 is here, it’s now, and it seems as though many, including myself, are oscillating from hopeful to disoriented, and at times at a rather violent speed. 

All the more reason to take some time to move.

Move through that with art in your life, mind and at heart.

Today I come with a brand new practice:

What Remained Unmanifested.

Series of 12 artworks with fruits, vegetables, flowers and birds where multiple realities mix and complement each other. Lose yourself in a Paradise  garden.

Hit refresh! These colours are instant palate cleansers. Their bright energy is the perfect antidote to winter.

1. OWL, ARTICHOKE AND FRENCH BEAN

I have added a wallpaper pattern with a pretty owl reminiscent of the William Morris design I saw in an old French estate last summer:

2. PARADISE BIRD AND QUINCE

3. PARADISE BIRDS, AUBERGINE  AND ARTICHOKE 

Schedule your seasonal renaissance now. All the beguiling charm of an Imaginary garden, the delicacy of timeless florals, the power of nature, and the comfort of a country house come together in this still life that is a herald of the perfect summer.

Another 9 still life and other new paintings are presented on the website of our gallery.

We offer free shipping for our clients for all paintings from this series.

Thank you for reading. 

Thank you for collecting our art.

Thank you for support.

With best wishes from Prague

Svetlana Kurmaz and Alexander Sokht

The world never ceases to amaze me.

This is a painting by a Canadian artist of Japanese origin called "Svetlana".
It was created for a Vancouver gallery as part of the Where Women Create exhibition project.
As I understand it, the task was to convey the world of the artist's woman through the available details seen on the Internet.
Surprisingly, it really looks like my world.
Emiko and I only know through instagram. ❤
She has a wonderful page there. The truth is beautiful:

This is where the exhibition will take place. If I have friends from Canada, here is the gallery address:
IN PAINT
March 19-29 2021
12 pm-6pm
679 West 6th Ave. Vancouver BC Canada

"

I have attached the catalogue of my new series and I would love it if you could take a look at it and see what I painted from the inspiration I received from you!
In the painting, "Svetlana" I have created the imaginary creative space that is full of what makes you Svetlana and is so unique about you. Also I have selected the objects to paint in this painting from whatever information I could find about you that speak so much to me and that I think make you you. My hope for my new series is for viewers to find their own stories and inspiration through "Where Women Create" and it is my absolute pleasure every time my collectors tell me they always find an object that reminds them of deep memories and stories and therefore inspiration for life."

How We Sending the Artworks:

Despite the strengthening of the lockdown, paintings are being painted and, thank God, are being sold. The post is working. You can send your chosen artwork anywhere in the world. Here I photographed the stages of packaging a small painting, painted exactly one year ago and sold now.

First, acid free paper, then bubble, then special dense but lightweight foam, then thick note paper, and at the very end I wrap the package in cellophane. And in a few days, the painting you have chosen is at your home!
