Biography: Irina is a painter of female nudes and portraits offering contemporary figurative painting in the styles of aesthetic impressionism and synthetism with emphasis on decorative line and colour. Her canvases are explorations of colour and composition, studies of texture and light, aesthetic relationships within the piece. The artist uses strong confident line to emphasise the strongest elements of female figure while introducing organic forms and elements of landscape and cityscape into the background to create a characteristic ambience of her works. Alongside aesthetic experiments, Irina is interested in ambience within the piece, seeks her paintings to be an insight into intimate scene. Her characters are captured in the atmosphere of laziness, serenity, calm; carefull studies of tone, colour and light enable the artist to create a sense of warmth and tranquility in her work and construct a realm of undisturbed contemplation and unending leasure. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, the studied in the College of Art and Design and graduated from the Kiev State Academy of Fine Arts. Since her graduation she exhibited in Germany and Austria, including her solo show in Cologne.
