Description of the artwork «"Sea Princess"»

Part of the polyptych "Sea Princess".
The mistress of the deep sea began to tremble and froze, not seeing how incapable of seeing people seemed to be impossible in their closed world, but sensing something unknown, which is symbolized by a butterfly that suddenly fell into the water element. In a warm, cold color, the picture shows a moment of anticipation in front of only the felt, but not yet visible. This moment of contact between the parallel spheres of life was transmitted by minimal means (we do not see the princess’s figure, only her face) through the plasticity of hair in the water column, her gaze, looking into the distance into herself, the expression on the face of a cold-blooded creature filled with solar energy, expressed by light and solar the color of the wings of a butterfly. These components of the canvas show the beginning of the sensual insight of the main character of this composition.
The work is in a private collection.
