Mystique – Chester Arts Fair – Visual Art Open Finalist

Dancers - Ballet Art Gallery. Mystique. Fine art original oil painting on a 91cm x 61cm stretched canvas created using a knife. Produced in cooperation with Dasha Nikonchuk. Original available. Framed = £4,950
Mystique is a Visual Art Open Finalist in their annual open competition and will be proudly exhibited from 15th – 17th November at the Chester Arts Fair, Chester Racecourse (CH1 2LY).
The detail is superb and the mysteriously sensual composition of the beautiful ballerina is dark, moody and atmospheric. She would certainly complement any tasteful home décor. If you are in the area, please visit the exhibition and let me know what you think! One lucky visitor can take her home! Alternatively, purchase a print as a gift for a loved one…

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
