A distinctive feature of modern art is its diversity, which allows the young author to search and find himself among the many existing ideas, themes, trends, styles, techniques, and development vectors. A situation has been created that is somewhat akin to the Renaissance, when the same artist is engaged in painting and architecture, poetry and sculpture, mathematics and diplomacy. Breadth of interests, freedom of choice, and an avid interest in everything new and unusual become the main criteria for the development of art.
Anastasia Kolosnitsyna has only recently entered this artistic world, which is open to innovations and does not reject traditions. The craft acquired during her studies was the start that allowed her to freely handle materials and work in different genres.
These features were reinforced in the first creative work "self-Portrait "(2018. Oil on canvas, 80x60), painted under the impression of Pablo Picasso. This work was appreciated by the honored artist of the Russian Federation Sergey Vorzhev, who suggested making a series in the same spirit. "The first job was a turning point. I was afraid to show it, I remember carrying it home, turning it away from everyone, " the artist says.
The young artist found freedom from academism, realized that you should not hide your fantasies. She took the path that allowed her to enter into a dialogue with the entire world's artistic heritage. And along the way, I found myself. Her interest in self-portrait, which allows combining the subjective and objective, existential and existential, is not accidental. The distinctive feature of her self-portraits is the lack of idealization, the lack of salon, the desire to convey not what she sees, but what she thinks (in the words of Pablo Picasso). "A new culture, born in the depths of the Renaissance, presupposes a brave knowledge of a person about himself," - this definition of the doctor of art history Alexander Yakimovich defines the artistic and human position of the young Krasnodar artist as well as possible. In a series of self-portraits, instead of a specific person, generalized images appear in which her own features are no longer recognized, developing into archetypes. About his lyrical self-portrait - "nudity "" Awakening "(2018.Oil on canvas.35x20) Anastasia said that the more she wrote, the sooner the feeling of constraint, shyness and fear disappeared.
After graduation, I wanted to see the world and travel. Prague has become a place that has influenced it with its energy, cultural traditions and artistic innovations. The two main paintings at that time were created under the impression of life in the Czech Republic. In one of them ("two-Faced". 2018. Oil on canvas. 60s 50) the author turns to the study of the Christian principles of the duality of human nature: good and evil, beauty and ugliness, truthfulness and hypocrisy, loyalty and betrayal - all this in Anastasia's work takes on the character of a plastic metaphor. In the composition " self-Portrait in the open air "(2018.Oil on canvas.35x25) increases the role of the grotesque, hyperbole, and non-feminine irony. In comparison with the thesis, in which there is a real space, there is a speculative, conceptual space, the role of flatness, linearity, and an open local spot increases. In these works, the artist's development goes from neocubism and neosymbolism to geometric abstraction, but she rarely crosses the border that separates abstract and figurative art.
Today's result of the series "Dialogues with Picasso" was the work of 2020: interior with still life and landscape " Guides of the Universe "(2020. Oil on canvas. 80x50) and " Chastity "(2020.Oil on canvas.60x90). Kolosnitsyna is getting closer to mastering the language of surrealism, creating a completely magical Universe populated more by symbols and signs than by living people (Infinity of creation).2020.Oil on canvas.50x50).
When images of people leave the canvas, they are replaced by things that live in the interior and space. If self-portraits are written without any romanticism or idealization
Anastasia kolosnitsyna was born in Krasnodar on August 8, 1994. In 2009, she graduated from the Krasnodar children's art school No. 1 (named After V. A. Ptashinsky).
