Iryna Akimova “Peonies wake up. Series SPRING STUDIES”
2021; acrylic on canvas; 100 х 80 cm
“The recurrence of the seasons is the only form of eternity that exists in nature,” wrote the American philosopher George Santayana. The change of seasons, like a chronometer, counts down the fleeting time and invites you to enjoy every moment of life. An endless variety of colors and plots that nature gives us – from blue icy winter branches, pale pink and purple spring flowers to lush summer greenery with bright yellow spots. He who has managed to collect the pieces of this magical mosaic in his own picture, finds life confidence, wisdom and harmony …
The SPRING STUDIES series offers unusual abstractions with elements of realism. An intricate composition is built from intricate figures and symbols, through which real branches and flowers grow. As if spring itself reproduces the living flesh of nature from invisible magical components.
