The Creator was creating only himself... 

 

 

         KATARINA

 

Katarina Sukhotskaya is a contemporary artist based in Moscow.

One of the directions of Katarina's work is the combination of art and science - the display of physical phenomena and their relationship with the environment and the inner world of human.
 

Over the last 5 years of creative activity, Katarina has held 3 solo exhibitions, took part in 20 group exhibitions, International Contemporary Art Fair in Shanghai, International Contemporary Art Fair art3f Paris and several international projects in China, France and Greece. The artist's paintings are in private collections in Russia and abroad.

 

 

The artworks of Katarina Sukhotskaya represent an independent original form of creativity, formed at the junction of such modern abstract techniques as mixed media and fluid art, suggesting the free flow of liquid acrylic paints on the canvas surface. 

 

Today Katarina is a well-established master. However, the love for creativity has occurred since her childhood. At first drawing was more like a hobby, but soon there were the first fashion-illustrations, then — watercolor and stencil drawings. Later acquaintance with acrylic allowed turning to easel painting, which in turn opened for Katarina a new exciting world full of plastic experiments.

 

Obviously, Katarina's creative impulse lies in a special sense of the value of the structural principle. The ratio of the internal space of the picture to the external landscape, the texture of the liquid paint can be considered Katarina's main author's technique.

 

While creating the compositions, she skillfully extracts the rare qualities of a

colorful material based on the use of granular and pastose surfaces. Despite the fact that the work is almost done without volume, in the same plane, the contrasts of matte and shiny textures contribute to a rich light-and-dark modeling. The light environment actively reveals the features of the form: light, touching the picture, pulsates, moves, giving the colorful mass the effects of flicker and self-luminosity.

 

It is necessary to recognize that, developing the expressiveness of its internal pictorial structures, Katarina Sukhotskaya changes the very nature of the easel painting as a whole, bringing it to the junction with the objects of monumental art. However, the priorities of her work are not only the comprehension of the plastic qualities of the colorful material and the aspiration for harmony of the decorative form, the philosophical meaning of the canvases is no less important — the conviction in the emotional power of the effect of the beautiful on the soul of the viewer.
