About Larissa Strunowa

There have been human beings before, there will be human beings when we are gone – merely the feelings of human beings are existing for centuries. The man comes as naked as he goes. In the fine art the body is the optimal expression for unaltered feelings. Much purer than the spoken word. With this pure presentation you can show feelings, thoughts and visions. Without a disguise the human being has no option than to be honest and open due to his lack of opportunity to hide something.
My works are telling very different stories, always in the great limitless room between deep sadness and great happiness. The returning main motive is the coming and going, the circle of the genesis and decay, by removing the old to create something new. Between birth and death lies the fullness of life with the circling questions: the growing up, the temptation, the freedom, the motherhood, the capability of relinquishment. These are my own, very personal feelings, that find there expression in my paintings, otherwise they obsess a general validity all around the world. I am a part of humanity; I am feeling the same intensity of life as everyone else.
The process of creating is a dialogue, the clarification of one question between me and something bigger. The completed picture is then an answer on ageless questions. Often there are a bunch of pictures that engage with one question. In a constant format they reflect similar, but different aspects of emotions. The individual works are only fragments of the whole.
