Sofya Khasanova on art: Art for art's sake is not mine. For me, drawing is like meditation. Observation of hands at the time of work. Game with color. Fun for the eyes. Starting to draw, I don’t ask myself the framework and don’t know what kind of painting I will get. For me, painting is just a color spot. If something bigger appears in the picture, that’s good. For me, a work of art is a portrait of the artist’s feelings. And if it succeeds, the viewer will see it. This is best done by naive artists (primitivists) who do not have a special art education. Their art has remained clean like that of children. People passing from the classical school into privatism are immediately visible. In order to stand out among the crowd of “artists”, they, like spoiled robots, are trying to overpower the program pumped into them.
