Topography Series (Heart) - abstract painting in light, yellow, pink, beige

2018

About

This painting is square art work from the Topography series by Natalia Sitnikova made with sand, alabaster and oil paint on canvas to create a specific texture that allows to employ crack and other ways to underline a uniqueness of the work. The style of the author is an appeal to abstraction as an adequate language for expressing one’s own emotional experience. For example, Malevich has a remarkably accurate expression and explanation for this - “the mind of painting”. As she said before: 'I love to work in series. It is an immersion in a long process. There is a continuation of the story and topics from work to work. Each canvas is a part of the whole and an independent organism. When they are together, this is like a huge installation. And there is movement in time and space - from and to, where everything is present, but, as a result, the cycle closes and a cinematic effect appears. In addition, each part of this installation in miniature contains the cyclical nature of the total length of the series'. A series of topography - a look at the landscape through its structure. Moving from canvas to canvas series - like moving on a map, a journey. Approximation to parts, particles and removal at a considerable distance. Detail tactile, tangible and recognizable at the level of texture, memory of the skin. I use sand, sawdust, alabaster - those materials that are a "quote" from life. For me, the detail, the recognizable fragment is not in the naturalism of reproduction, but in the exact recognition of a particular fragment that is familiar to absolutely everyone who touched stone, sand, wood or earth. And the topography of the place itself may already be transformed, although sometimes I include specific geographic fragments. It is interesting for me to include and transform the concrete, existing, into the structure of the generated, composed space. This space is a sense of place, the birth of memories. The key to this birth is in a recognizable detail, the viewer can then either focus on the approximation, or look from a bird's eye view at a “familiar” or seemingly familiar place. Optics perception plays a huge role. And this range between the “naturalism” of the limit approximation, the introduction into the structure and the state of “flight over” is very important to me. This "gap" between, he is alive, he is like an organism. Accordingly, I also consider the landscape as a living, pulsating and breathing substance, in a relationship with which a person lives.
