Idea of work
A painting influenced by a difficult relationship with my last girlfriend. I was born naturally spontaneously, but the thoughts that were crowded in my head at that time materialized in this work. And my nephew Sasha understood it most accurately, who said then: “You can feel the atmosphere of despair”, and I realized that it was exactly so. It was extremely joyful to realize that sometimes others manage to feel something that does not immediately reach you. And once again he will be surprised with what images the brain operates in search of materialization of the experiences that are inside a person. It was not possible to save our relationship, the work remained with me. And the work is still one of my favorite and dear ones.
History of creation
The work was also sold (like the other four) without my knowledge in Langres, France, where I participated in three exhibitions, unfortunately, not personally, that’s why it happened. And just after a while, I drew it again and in this particular work I tried to preserve the same feeling that was so dear to me in the first one and not try to improve anything.
