Творчество Галины Лопатиной — это редкий сегодня сплав традиций классической живописи с современным мироощущением, где в пространственном построении ощущаются тончайшие нюансы света. Причем не важно, пишет ли художница жаркие пейзажи Португалии или живописно передает тихий разговор травы, всегда зритель воспринимает искреннюю ноту творчества, звучащую в трепетном переливе света живописного полотна. Для художницы, кажется, не существует понятия неодушевленной или одушевленной природы. Для нее существует некая единая гармония всего сущего, которая выражается в многообразии нюансов формы и цвета. Благодаря этому картины воспринимаются наделенными особой одухотворенностью и внутренней силой, которая не скрывает природную женственность и утонченную натуру мастера.
Каждая новая работа Галины Лопатиной это словно новый взгляд из современного урбанизированного мира на спокойную гармонию природы, как в пейзаже “Оливы. Португалия”, в котором возникает удивительное ощущение вечности, или особая, внешне неприметная красота мира, как в “Маковом поле”.
Галерея женских образов, созданная художницей, уводит зрителя из реального мира в мир внутреннего созерцания глубинного жизненного таинства и проникновения в тайны бытия, Через образы “Трех женщин” великолепно ощущается поиск гармонии разных характеров и судеб, взаимопроникновение и прикосновение разных культур и традиций.
Феномен творчества Галины Александровны Лопатиной — в многогранной образной выразительности, тонкой лиричности. Он и в том, что в каждой работе, созерцая мир, художница создает как бы новую палитру нюансов движения линии и цвета, которые наполняют прекрасный и гармоничный мир ее живописи.

LUBA STERLIKOVA

Russian born, Luba Sterlikova currently resides in the US and is known to the artistic community as LUBA.

Both Russian and American influences can be detected in her work, as the Eastern vivid colors blend symbiotically with more Western shapes and structure.

Her work is often compared to that of American icon Georgia O’Keefe, but Luba’s passionate approach is undeniably her own.

Keshav Malik, Indian art critic, called Luba’s work ’a juicy genre, as rich as Keats, the poet’s fruity poems.’

The artist’s interest goes beyond stylizing natural forms. Rather, Luba explores shape and color to evoke in each composition an expression that is both provocative and poignant. Characterized as

intense and exotic, Luba’s floral compositions strike a balance between the bold and the graceful; they are simultaneously intense and delicate.

Luba’s work has been referred to as provocative and sexually charged,

although she prefers to call it romantic.

Her now famous floral impressionism series, is complimented by still life images of fruit and vegetables such as plums, apricots, eggplant and squash, produced in the same stylized manner as the sybaritic botanical subjects. In a controversial incident, she was asked to remove some of her sensually-themed works from a major corporation for fear of sexual harassment lawsuits. The episode only served to render Luba’s work more collectible and much in demand.

She uses oil pastel, a medium not widely explored by the artists, charcoal and oil.

Luba is active on the Washington, DC art scene, and for many years has been involved with International Artist Support Group (IASG) and WPA/Corcoran, Washington,DC,USA.

She has been exhibited internationally, including USA, China, France, India, United Kingdom, Spain, Egypt and Russia.

Since 2004, Sterlikova is associate academician of Academia Internazionale “GRECI-MARINO”, Italy. The same year she became a member of International Federation of Artists & National Artist’s Union of Russia. Ms. Sterlikova is a member of L’Association Pour la Promotion des Artistes et des Createurs, Paris, France and Oil Pastel Society, USA, and Moscow Artist Union, Russia.

Sterlikova’s works are in private collections in UK, USA, France, Germany, China, Russia.

Serguei Zlenko was born in the Republic of Georgia in 1960. He studied at the Russian Academy in Moscow and later obtained a Master in Fine Art from Surikov Art Academy in 1984.

In 1993, Serguei was invited to become a member of the Finnish Artists’ Association, and, later in 1996, the Russian Artists’ Association. His most recent exhibitions include the Fletcher Gallery in New York; Galerie Horhammer, Helsinki; Museum of Applied Art, Finland; Gallery Art Encounter, Las Vegas; and Sala Barna Gallery in Barcelona.

Serguei Zlenko belongs to a generation of Russian painters whose creativity falls in the critical period at the turn of the century. In this respect it proves to be very important to preserve the conception of inviolable aesthetic values in our rapidly changing world.
Serguei’s choice of subject matter is extensive; including ballet dancers both in preparation for and during performance; portraiture and landscape in the plein-air tradition. His approach also fluctuates between realism and surrealism.

Artist Biography

Natalia Vetrova was born in Moscow. She began formal arts training at the Technical College of Industrial & Applied Arts in Moscow, specializing in sculpture between 1981 and 1985. Her love in sculpture translated into a position as interior designer at a stained glass workshop in Moscow. Natalia began exhibiting professionally after graduation in 1995 from the Stroganov Academy of Art, where she qualified with a Master of Art Criticism and Design.

Her longing for inspiration and fresh ideas takes her through Asia, as a member of a geological expedition, then further to Europe, and Paris, where she survives by portraiture in front of Notre Dome de Paris. Ultimately, Natalia’s travels led her to the natural beauty of Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1997. Natalia opened her Studio of Art and Design, where she teaches and works. Her paintings are internationally sought after by private collectors.

“When I do a painting, I feel as if God is in me”

Victor Kazanin is a Russian born iconographer and fine artist of exceptional skills. Since his early childhood years, he has been drawn to the images of ancient Christian art which he saw in the museums and churches. “ I found refugee in the church,” said Victor Kazanin. “ God helped me escape all the circumstances. There were opportunities and I saw my future with them. Today, things are much different in Mother Russia. After years of suppression and down times provided by forces of the communism, the religion is enjoying a resurgence.”

Victor Kazanin’s formal training includes the following: The School of Applied Arts of Moscow University, the Studios of the Moscow Iconographers ( 1982-1991 ), as well as private coaching from Adolph Ovchinikov ( world-famous iconographer and leading restorer of the icon treasures in the Russian Stat Museum ).In the studio of Moscow Iconographers, he started studying Byzantine style, and spent over 7 years sharpening his skills.

Victor came to Washington, D.C. in 1992 as a part of the team of iconographers to work at the St. Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral. Victor always seeks to create a beauty in the world of the icons. His icons are painted in the highly artistic way, yet with the traditional Byzantine style. Archbishop Theodosuis awarded Victor the grammota in 1995. In Washington, D.C. he also worked with Fr. Feodor Koufus on the iconography of St. John Babtist Orthodox Cathedral.

Victor Kazanin was lured from Washington by church leaders eager to tap on the centuries-old orthodox tradition of blending art and religion. For a total of five years he was working in the El Rio Church in Oxnard, California. On the walls, once empty and white, he has spread a brilliant tapestry of biblical scenes and solemn-paced icons in acrylic splashes of teal, crimson, and gold.

V. Kazanin is always able to find harmony between exciting surroundings and his work. He has been creating icons and frescos for many years. He is masterful in his art and technique, and seeks perfection at every stage. “ I paint from my heart,” he said to a Los Angeles Time reporter. His art is intended to encourage prayer and meditation, and to provide a “ window to eternity. There is an uplifting spirit. It is the meeting place between heaven and earth.” Before painting an icon, Victor prepares himself. He reads a tremendous amount of the history and theology, listens to classical music, prays and fasts, and avoids any world excitements during his work process. Victor Kazanin works 3-4 times faster than any other iconographer. “ It is difficult to explain the energy it where it comes from but I don’t seem to have direct control. It feels to me like a gift,” he said.

Volodia Popov-Massiaguine has tackled a variety of pictorial genres, exhibiting a particular talent for the female form and still-life’s. Thanks to a mixture of classical rigor and romantic fantasy, totally unaffected by any desire to copy others, Volodia Popov has turned his back on “realistic” illusion and expresses his feeling for life through a deliberate
And lucid deformation of nature, thanks to a melancholic lyricism, to the mediation of dream world and fable. His works evolve in a magic atmosphere, in which predominates the inner life, meditation, aspirations to transcendence.

The enigma of womanhood, the surprise apparition of a portrait, the fairytale quality of certain objects…..for Vladimir Popov these mighty constants, which supply the foundation of his work, are at the same time potentials within which his poetic sense enjoys free play.

Each painting offers the viewer a sensual delight which offers introspective displacement thanks to an operation of magical enchantment.

Please is the rule. However, one should not misinterpret Volodia Popov’s objectives. It is not simply a question of esthetic enjoyment; rather it is a dialogue between melancholic sensibility and plastic beauty.

The compositions of Volodia Popov’s paintings are structured according to the laws of geometry, thanks to plane forms freed of all rigidly formal constraints.
No element seems to be superfluous. Purified, the composition facilitates the free movement of one’s gaze. From Byzantine iconography Volodia Popov has derived a form of composition with an inversed frontal perspective, which permits the viewer to concentrate on the figure, positioned in the very centre of the canvas in an often hieratic attitude. All realistic representation having been thus excluded, the viewer’s gaze is freed from the thralldom of semblance in order more easily to penetrate into a mysterious inner world.

A realization of how precarious is the equilibrium between the different elements of the composition reinforces the evanescent character of his painting.

Freed of every realistic and illustrative tendency, Volodia Popov uses a rich palette of colors with limitless warm hues. He thus plays with a vast variety of possibilities, without upsetting his permanent search for harmony The flesh tints are delicate, lines and colors blend, the relationships between hues are treated with a sure sense of nuance, light is introduced by subtle gradations of yellow and golden tones.

Far from rejecting his past, Volodia Popov has integrated his Russian heritage into his works thanks to a cosmopolitan view of art. His predilection for line and rhythm, his choice of colors, the frontal representation of his figures, the narrative enchantment of his paintings….are signs that need to interpreted in light of his Russian and Orthodox heritage.

Volodia Popov has brilliantly achieved a synthesis between Eastern and Western art, the figurative and the abstract, the real and the imaginary.
