About The Artwork

Golden sculpture "ALHENA" - gilded with the pure gold leaf. My sculptures illustrate the infinite diversity of nature of which so much remains to be explored on our planet, such as the immensity of Space, with its unknown planets, stars, and galaxies so mysterious and so far from us. Indeed, marine waters hide an invaluable treasure: extraordinary biodiversity. By making sculptures in natural shells gilded with 24-carat gold, I desire to highlight this diversity and the beauty of underwater nature, which remains unfortunately unknown to us. It is an outstanding tribute to nature and especially to the ocean depths which remain mysterious to humanity. Incredibly, more people have landed on the Moon than on the bottom of the Ocean Abysses. These gold shell sculptures represent the shining points of light in the depths of the ocean like the stars light up our night sky on a new moon evening above the sea. The surface of the water serves as a mirror. Therefore these artworks are named like the brightest stars in the night sky perceptible from Earth. By continuing the reflection on the Ocean and the Cosmos, strong similarities appeared: this darkness that bathes them both, the extreme conditions which reign there, the unknown area which pushes constantly our humanity to innovate and find a way to explore this uncharted territory. As well as, since the dawn of time, a combination of fear and admiration that they arouse, makes them a tremendous source of inspiration for our imagination.

contact.mvartstudio@gmail.com Mariya Velychko is a French artist from Nice, on the French Riviera. She is a winner and participant of diverse national and international art competitions. Her works combine ancestral and contemporary techniques with the modernity of pure lines and natural elements, magnified by the shifting luminosity of gold. Her creativity is stimulated by the duality of this material. The metallic side of gold leads her to explore and experiment with new materials, textures, and techniques. The light side inspires the artist to expand her representations from figurative and minimalism to abstract expressionism, playing with colours, contrasts, and their complementarity and spontaneity. She also works with the natural elements, transforming them into finely chiselled metal sculptures, gorgeously accentuating all features of these compositions. Light is the key element in her work, it constantly interacts with the textures and shapes creating the singularity of her artworks.
