Each one of us travels. Sometimes we travel in real spaces and sometimes in spaces that we created in our imagination.
We look up and feel the wind or we travel along the leaves of grass or the petals of a flower. We leave traces of us along the way, but mostly, these travels leave their mark on us.
But sometimes, you can go on a journey simply by looking at these works of art and open yourself up to a different world.
Elena Freidis believes that her works relate an atmosphere of real places in Crimea, Serbia and in St. Petersburg. As a city person, she wants her art to convey a feeling of translucency of air, sun, nature and wants the viewer to feel happy and not rushed by the speed and noise of city life. All the usual stresses of life disappear while preparing her artwork.
The world of Alexander Korolev is quite different: sometimes filled with sounds and sometimes with absolute silence.
The colors in his pictures are bright and seem to be talking with each other and with you. Alexander often says that things are “happening” in his pictures. His world is alive and moving and gets all of us involved.
