“Blizzard I” is one of the two painting series. Why “Blizzard”? I made these paintings at the end of 2018 – beginning of 2019, when after a long array of life challenges I was starting to rebuild my little universe of art and internal peace.
The pieces of these series represent a catharsis of feeling lost in a sea of contrasting emotions, where someone tries to find its footing and regain a sense of identity and individuality.
“Blizzard” represents a juxtaposition of dark and light, of moments of calm enmeshed with moments of agony.
“Blizzard” speaks a lot to the feeling of futility of existence, combined with triumphant optimism – and opening up of the metaphorical dam of the vast array of feelings and emotions.
