Contemporary art, July 1991, 150×100 cm

Description of the artwork «Nostalgia»

Anna Lavrova

"Nostalgia 1991

The work was created in 1991 in the workshop in Abramtsevo, by the assignment of E. Beliutin. The general theme for the painting is "New Reality". It has the theme "Tunnel of our life".
Techniques for painting painting:
"Looking Glass" is the world we ourselves would like to be in, but it is not there. "Negatives" - strange associations of object perception, colors as on the color negative in the photo, bright somewhat artificial, unreal.

Lavrova was exactly on topic - Nostalgia is the tunnel of our lives into the past. The color combinations in the work are somewhat unnatural, as in the negative. Water, the reflection of the sun in it, and above in the sky, through the clouds, the moon. And a black flower. And the white stems below.
That past that cannot be brought back.

(Vera I. Preobrazhenskaya, Studio Belyutin, 1991)

A small addition. The author wanted to convey the mood of sadness about the past. But in this sadness there are bright memories, which can be guessed in the form of light lines crossing the space of the image. And these light sprouts are a bright hope for joy in the Future.

(Nadezhda A. Alexandrova, Studio Beliutin, 2022)
