Madina Kanunova. Flight of Imagination/ Flight of fancy
And lyric Fancy, imagination and fantasy... the rainbow of colors that make you feel alive. Acrylic and watercolor on paper. Illusion and lyricism, imagination and fantasy... a rainbow of color that makes you feel alive. Acrylic and watercolor on paper.
My paintings represent my inner world in all its manifestations, my vision of the real world, this is my attitude to what's around. I began to paint in watercolors during the civil war in my country. It was a difficult time, I worked on the back page of postcards, photographs, magazine covers and on any white piece of paper. Friends actively provided me with these materials. Despite my external and internal difference, my paintings have many common secrets that I am gladly sharing with you. The first secret - most of my artworks are painted with a rough and stiff brush, which is still the favorite one. The second secret is that the pictures can be viewed in the usual way, but most of them can be seen from 2, 3 and even 4 sides, and almost always a different story appears before you. The third secret - There is no real image of any real place or object in my watercolors. I paint what excites me at the moment. The fourth secret - There are watercolors with verses. Fifth secret - Visitors to my personal exhibitions noted that my paintings have a beneficial and healing effect on their internal state: they calm, make you think. Do not look for the places depicted on the map, and tickets are not sold there. These places are in my soul, and I just give them to you. If my paintings (even their fragments) brought you pleasure, peace, good and a little sadness, I will be happy at the thought that there is someone who needs it.
In my miniatures, you can feel the inseparable unity of the universe and mankind. They have life-affirming origins. I clearly hold the idea that the striving for unity with nature and the harmony of its laws allows one to see the world differently, in the way I see it. As if a stealing a look into the secrets of existence and its cosmic infinities, we see the astonishing combination of colors, blazing during the rising and setting of the sun.
