on this piece i spent most time ever i spent on one painting... but it pays of! Best realistic painting i ever did! Idea came up for me somewhere in November 2009, when i actualy started work on it, but there were a huge take offs from work.
I wanted depict a classic myth in contemporary shape, with modern symbols, like Wall street Bull carrying High end slut or pornstar on his back trough empty swimingpool, with no water.. only with some liquid remains of Gold... man, it turns out like visual poetry for me!!!
Thanks god for talent and gift he gave to me :)
ps (in pic used reference model is Laura Dore)
in this piece i inspired by idea of factitious beauty. Its a whole space, a whole industry ,a whole world of life stile and way of thinking, way of how to feel your ego into this world - society. Clubers, models, adult stars.... matel barbies, and MTV teen stars, glamour and fame, red carpets and fashion brands.... life on distant imaginering star.
Fight starts right now!
inspiried by book covers, and fancy candy boxes, i allways wanted to build a very Fake painting. Fake art by itself, like irony about contemporary art, when everything can be an art. So qute irony with high craft of painting skills... nothing more. But seems its impossible.. cos at the end this becomes an art by itself with idea of Fake... further is imagination
since many years this is a my first female painting. I allways loved an pinup art, classic masters and fantasy painters... so i did my shot on vision how should nude be painted today in old academic way, when you can do anything better with photo camera.
NANO.. i am a big fan of science... so tried to put in feelings of unknown future, afraid, some miracle coming up... human kind will transform , mutate until disapear ...
name of painting is word game between latvian and russian languages. Cos [meat] in latvian translate as GALJA, also GALJA in russian is womans name in short from fullname GALJINA.
this is the short view on my solo exhibition ECLIPSE in art gallery in Riga.
It includes animation and painting. In animation part is depicted ritual how male can reach female, but paintings show creatures of contemporary dogma.
