Sometimes I come up with artworks as if I were making a movie. That is, I see my characters, I understand them, but I tell my visual story in one frame. Since this is a painting, it has its own laws: to collect all the time in an instant and find such an image so that the viewer himself can imagine all the possible options for the development of the plot. Sometimes it’s very difficult to remember how this or that visual story was formed and an artwork appeared. What are the details of the puzzle? A sketch of an interesting movement in a sketch book, three months of living in Florence, funny name and beautiful artichoke shape, an elegantly dressed woman in an evening tram, seen and somehow holding my attention, almost monochrome combination of deep cold green and warm noble gray. All this together is somehow melted, mixed , often in secret even from the author, and the painting is obtained. Honestly, I can’t remember what exactly this painting was brought to life. Or did this female character just ask me on canvas? And why is she holding this artichokes in her hands? There is a certain intimacy in this gesture. In connection with it, many beautiful associations appear, including personal ones. I painted this artwork, trying to find the personal touch of the character through movement, gesture, color, clothes. Here, as in many of my paintings, the influence of the style of the 30s is noticeable: a clear line, local color relationships, even the character and clothes of the models remind that time. The artwork is painted by imagination in a minimalist style by brush.
