Painting, 2019, 60×45 cm

Description of the artwork «Amelia.»

Canvas, oil, brushwork. The painting has the effect of turning Amelia's head with a graceful tilt as the viewer passes in front of the painting. The effect of a shimmering smile. Amelia's gaze accompanies the viewer as she moves in front of the painting. At any point, no matter where the viewer is, Amelia's gaze will be directed only to him. An experiment was conducted with two viewers looking at the painting at opposite corners of the painting, Amelia's gaze looking at the two viewers simultaneously, with each viewer claiming that Amelia is looking only at him. Amelia's facial expression changes. Amelia's figure is positioned between two sculptures. One, in the right corner, is light; the second, in the left corner, is dark. The sculptures, despite their dynamic poses, do not move, but remain in a static position. The base of the column in the dark sculpture is slightly curved, giving the figure of Amelia movement, for when a living thing moves, space curves slightly. The composition unwinds spirally, from Amelia's chin, as well as dome-like from the twentieth plan of the upper left corner, where the painting began.
