Painting: Oil on Canvas.
'New Age" is a piece intended to create relaxation and optimism; it collects all the affirmative moments of energy and emotion peaks I had this summer. The unique composition and bold color scheme offer a shift in perspective that often can help relieve the stress and lighten your mood; that's where inspiring painting can be not just enjoyable, but great for stress management as well.
The primary colors are blue, violet, and yellow. Blue is a very soothing color that helps calm your mind and reduces tension. Violet that stems from blue is another color that brings peace to your soul. Sunny, cheerful yellow adds a lighthearted touch to any space.
✔ The painting signed on the front and back. It is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges and comes ready to hang. "New Age" conceived and completed by August-October of 2018 at the Hanurit Studio, Jerusalem.
About a process:
This piece I have started with no preconceived notion of where the process will go. There is something magical about the painting being spontaneous, as I only have a certain amount of control over what is out - the rest is serendipity. Although there are only three primary colors, I use various mixtures to create lots of additional shades. By choosing the right hues, I create the desired mood in my pieces. "New Age" is a multilayered work. I build up layers using a variety of techniques with large windows in each so that the final image is a kind of collage of textures.
About a series "New Age":
New Age is a collection of spiritually oriented works. An emotional inner trip. Picturesque and thought-provoking, these compositions quietly flow into consciousness, to challenge perceptions and stimulate the senses. One of the things that brings all these paintings together and that immediately attracts attention is Water. It is no coincidence because Water characterizes the eternal flow and is has always been a symbol of purification, a redemptive force, and a center of regeneration. New Age is like an ancient spiritual or healing ritual. It offers you the opportunity to enter into the process and by joining in at each step, allowing the carefully crafted pacing to work on you, come to the point of transformation.
About the artist:
Alexey Adonin’s paintings are at the intersection of abstraction and surrealism. The layered shapes of color ambiguously represent landscapes and castle-like structures, which appear isolated and far off into the distance, as if we are staring at a mirage that could disappear at any moment. His work projects an inherent tension, with a clear center point in each painting around which every element revolves and impels from. The sense of remoteness and apprehension in work is undoubtedly influenced by his experience as an immigrant, and the political and religious tension he lives with, in Jerusalem. Many of his paintings are inspired by his interest in philosophy and the universal forces that sublimely push and pull us along. He approaches his work without preconception and allows his unconscious mind to direct the formation of his surreal landscapes. As he puts it, “painting should walk through a sort of evolution, like a child who grows up.”
