About NATALIA SATSYK

Born 1984 in the North of Ukraine Natalia Satsyk absorbed both the nordic palette and the Byzantine sublime. She paints not from observation, but from a dream. Some people call it faith. She paints to fly. Her works elevate, liberate, go inward.
.............................................................................
JUST THE CORE: "What I paint I hide behind many layers, textures, scratches, colors in order to see only just the core of a matter - not the many concrete details but its substance, its spirit".
.............................................................................
Restless movements disclose passion and dramas that are hidden behind the subdued achromatic coloring. Dense painting retains the initial transparency and the innocency of a blank canvas.
............................................................................
MEDITATION: Painted in torn and tremulous strokes, the images thrive to capture all even most awkward movements of the longing, praying, blissful, enlightened soul - a sincere self-reflexive meditation.
