The creative search of the artist are in different genres: landscape, still life, portrait, genre composition. Starting with natural landscapes. The artist subsequently refuses an accurate image of the visible. The artist creates "your" landscape, and the corresponding image edge, and the spiritual essence of the artist. Not to recreate the external appearance of nature, but to Express her soul, to reveal the secret of her life – that's the credo and the objective of the work of A. V. Shaporina.
