About the art
ABOUT «HIDDEN PORTRAITS» SERIES
As a child, I had a favorite pastime: I found familiar images of people, animals, or fairy-tale creatures in patterns on a wall plaster, tile, or other surface. These images became my friends and I came up with interesting stories that could happen to them. This artwork series is made on the same principle: mysterious portraits of people hidden in an abstract painting. This is something you won't see at the first glance.
I immediately realized that in this picture I need to depict an oriental girl. There was another option to portray the Greek goddess, but her image seemed to me less expressive. I looked at photos and images of Chinese and Japanese girls in traditional dress before I started painting. I liked the Japanese style more, I decided to call the painting «Japanese Princess» and depict a Japanese girl in a flowering garden on it. I understand that the green color is somewhat unusual as a complexion, but it is an abstraction - you can play with colors! And another small detail: I put on the abstract spots first, and only then I think about what can be depicted from it. The result is unexpected! This is the whole point!
