ANASTASIA RUSSA - LARGE OIL PAINTINGS
As an artist, I am exploring the Lost Paradise myth with all its beauty, violence and liberation. I blend our new icons of mass-produced toys, computer-game heroes and social net symbols with the meta-narratives seen in different Mythologies.
The Gods and Heroes of ancient mythology have mutated and are now embodied in the virtual-reality of computer games. These have become the new fetishes of mass-culture and have assumed their new "flesh" in the plastic of commercial toys. Thus I am contriving an evolution of this subject-matter, and it is this that comprises my interpretation and representation of modern History Painting.
As media for my art practice, I use traditional oil painting, but also experiment, to a considerable extent in a modernist way, by mixing different solvents and raw materials; using these to create texture as a distinctive background, an empty stage for my future figurative paintings.
