The modern man receives huge layers of information every day. And very different: from low-quality to important exclusive knowledge. But the problem is that there is no time to master it. We throw in and throw in new layers of thoughts, other people's ideas, conclusions, other people's experiences, and we completely forget where are we? Where am I? What is my goal? What am I consuming information for?
The skill of slowing down, of grounding, is as necessary as the skill of eating right. We can't live our lives well if we don't know how to flip that tumbler and feel when the moment is right.
With this collection in beige, earthy and coffee tones I wanted to express that moment of slowing down, coming back to myself (I do use natural ground coffee when creating these paintings). It is a ray of light turning to the inside of each of us. Illuminating that deep, unique world of feelings and thoughts. There is so much of you in this world, so much of your soul and happiness. There is a reason to stop and reflect on the question: What really matters to me right now?

Lesia Danilina is a young talented artist lives in Turkey.
"Globally, the theme of my art is Healing and Mental Health. I talk about the state of mind of modern man in an era of global change and traumatic events.
In my art I propose to explore the causes of discomfort (Essentialism series) and to see ways to peace (Moments and Beige feelings).
In doing so, I want to deepen Herman Rorschach's research on the interpretation of stains and personality characteristics of emotional states in the key of specifically healing from negative experiences.
To reflect this theme, I use acrylic and soak-stain and mostly uncoated canvas.
Initially I only have stain and color in my arsenal. And then I can only use the art of composition, knowledge of color psychology and physics of materials (using different mediums for acrylics, water pours, texture pastes, ground coffee).
I create my abstractions meticulously thinking through each stain and color.
To structure the work in abstract art is to conduct chaos. But at the same time I am constantly in dialogue with my material, allowing it to guide me, thereby holding the balance. With a subtle intuitive understanding of how this works and influences the viewer, it can make a wonderful statement. It is resonant, succinct and profound.
I believe that healing work can take place through abstract works because it is when observing abstract paintings that the subconscious mind actively begins to work.
I guide the viewer through experiences that have become healing for me and give support on the difficult path to inner harmony."
