About Rusudan Khizanishvili

I paint with my emotions. Colors are my brainwaves. I invite onlookers into multilayer portals through my imagery animals as symbolic door handles between cultures, nations, times and identities. They are also the door handles that give me a way to an unknown world, full of stories. It is a mystical underground way which, is neither romantic or attractive. Therefore, hardships and storms of life are background to the new world of escape or freedom.
Daily routines are depicted in the paintings also. Women with their wishes, ups and downs, and thoughts are going to be the main characters. Sunglasses, masks, geometrical elements, lipsticks, postcards, and photos are some of the elements which are used for my paintings. Everything what can be around us must be used, but without harming the environment. Human beings, fantastic animals and expressive character as a cultural phenomenon are the main subjects of the paintings of mine.
Latest theme of my compositions is called Conversion Device. It explores transformations of humans into a new specie through undergoing their own death and rebirth by passage through mythical conversion device. Humans starved in digital reality are escaping into natural preserves.

Education

Rusudan lives and paints in Tbilisi, Georgia. She was born in 1979 and received her two BFAs in Painting from J.NikoladzeArt School and from Tbilisi State Academy of Art. In 2005Rusudan received her MA in Film Studies from Tbilisi State Academy of Art. For Rusudan a blank canvas is an escape road or intradimensional portal to the new world created by her imagination. This world is populated by strong women who carry their social burden day in and day out, while retaining their archetypal allure. Rusudan also frequently includes animals that serve as symbolic guides between cultures and identities. Her confident use of color combined with a palpable and often sensuous handling of oil paint demonstrates a maturity that proved her interesting to many galleries and residences across the world. In 2015 ten of her works have been bought by the Georgian National Museum of History and Culture as part of the Georgian national heritage.
