Our whole life is a long labyrinth of different stages – bright and shaded, light and dark. It may bring us unexpected or desired, easy or hard solutions and decisions on our path.
The kaleidoscopic path you can choose yourself on my canvases and walk this imaginative way.

Abstract art in the understanding of the author should stimulate the conscious process of contemplation. It connects the artist’s process of making with a viewer’s experience of looking, both bases on deep concentration. Abstract art is to highlight the complex nature of seeing.
The work is to observe nature in the multiplicity of its dimensions, and transform personal observation of the world through the sequence of elements on the canvas.
The works of the artist are complex and laborous. Abstract geometric shapes are bright in colour with clear contours, which make them contrast against each other. Size and colour of each element of the ornament are carefully measured in order to achieve balance and contrast between them. The image in selected works under some observation process begins to vibrate, shimmer, move.
In some series the principle of geometric patterning such as infinite repetition and cyclical movement are used.
In the artistic practice of Marina Astakhova, geometric compositions with acrylic on canvas resonate with interior sculptures and panels made of wood. The artist’s work is characterized by a constant desire to experiment with artistic techniques and materials.
