"Looking through my artworks one by one, you can see that the topic of water has been with me for quite a long time. David Hockneys’ artworks pushed me to the plot of diving and resurfacing. This series of works was created in summer, after a trip to the sunny Azerbaijan with its sea, swimming pools, etc. Upon my return to St.Petersburg, the printing workshop at the Art Academy was at my disposal all summer. Seizing the moment, I created these and many more linocuts that summer.
In this work the water is reminiscent of plastic. It is not even clear whether the figure will be able to get out of this substance, which creates some tension."—Varvara Drobina.
This original linocut print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist. The item comes unframed.

Varvara Drobina is a professional artist born and based in St.Petersburg, Russia. She is currently in her final year at the prestigeous Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St.Petersburg, Russia, where she specializes on the printmaking techniques, illustration and book design.
Filled with countless allusions from various art forms, from cinema to theatre, from poetry to music, Varvara Drobina's artworks are strikingly powerful and have a lasting aftertaste. Decorative without becoming superficial, illustrative without becoming restrictive, they speak at both figurative and abstract levels.
In 2018 she was selected for the exchange programme with Beaux-Arts de Paris, where she studied under the tutelage of Wernher Bouwens and the fresco master Philippe Bennequin.
