Artist Tatsiana Ivanova


Personal exhibition of Tatyana Ivanova "The world of feelings and states in poems and watercolors". At the opening of the exhibition, a presentation of a book with poems from 2010-2020 "Rhymed Life"will take place

At the exhibition of Tatyana Ivanova, we will plunge into the world of watercolors. This is one of the most difficult painting techniques, which requires special accuracy and does not forgive mistakes. At the exhibition, we can trace how the relationship between the artist and the material develops, how new techniques appear in Tatiana's repertoire, how she masters different coloristic solutions.
Most of the works presented are landscapes. These are both traditional views of European cities, and the water surface with paths running away into the distance. However, if you look more closely, you can see in them a touching story, noticed by the attentive eye of the artist. Tatiana finds inner drama in a boy pulling a sled across a snow-covered field, in the tense rhythm of tree branches, in the windows of houses looking at us.
Tatiana Ivanova's works are contemplative and poetic. By the way, she herself has the most direct relation to poetry - the artist has released a collection of poems with her own illustrations. These two types of art complement each other and express her personal vision of the world. The works of Tatyana Ivanova are clear and human art, lyrical and moderately symbolic.

"In the world of beauty"
Personal exhibition of Tatyana Ivanova
" Watercolorism of feelings
and poetry of the palette"

"Through the holes
of an autumn leaf
The sun will certainly
shine again."
These poetic lines, written by a young artist Tatyana Ivanova, can rightfully act as a leitmotif of her artistic creativity - graphic works.
Tatiana lives in Novopolotsk, works at an art school, teaches drawing and composition, and in her spare time... writes poems and paintings.
The artist already expresses his thoughts, feelings, character by choosing these themes, Tatiana's graphic sheets are uncomplicated and inconspicuous, devoid of such a popular idea-

nya "twisting of the plot". However, this simplicity is not akin to simplicity, it is the result of a long and painstaking internal work, a careful selection of themes and plots. Perhaps that is why, devoid of pretentiousness and moralizing, the exhibition strikes with a bright and life-affirming optimism and resembles clean, rain-washed foliage. This optimism, when you create not thanks, but in spite, is possible if an artist, like Tatiana, looks for a source of inspiration in the "azure of heaven" and in simple, unpretentious objects that surround us in everyday life.

Touching purity, "watercolor" are read in the works devoted to the topic of motherhood. This is a young woman illuminated by the morning sun, engaged in simple household work, which seems to radiate light and warmth, peace and tranquility (the work of "Clothespins, a flower and an iron"). And a female figure merged in one silhouette with a child against the background of a window and twilight descending on the city (the work "Evening Idyll").

A portrait occupies a special place in Tatiana's work. This was the topic of her graduation work at the institute, but to this day Tatiana is interested in a person, his inner world, which, according to the artist, is reflected in his
eyes, facial features. An interesting portrait is the "SV Car", which
depicts either a" girl from high society " Valery Meladze,or a Blokov stranger. Masterly mastery of watercolors, a sense of the material are found in the portrait "Velvet Eyes".

I would like to finish a brief sketch about the artist Tatyana Ivanova
with a fragment of her poem:
Put it at the forefront
Everything that is expensive and beloved.
Unsightly, even if rude -
Put it at the forefront!
And on the very ceiling
You hang a ray of hope.
It will light up everything as before!
And then for a corner
You hang up a sheet of doubts,
And there will be no other opinions:
The hour of freedom is not far away!
