Painting by Veronika Surovtseva. Hall 1 of 6
Back to the main Russian page

Painting by Veronika Surovtseva is of sharp, dynamic, passionate nature. In her creative work, the artist is guided by her own taste alone, never limiting herself within the confines of any narrow style. She employs colour collision and contrast, without any fear of open colours. The colour in her work vibrates, glimmers, as if living its own life, and, despite the contrasts, is surprisingly harmonious. There is no place for dim, gloomy tints in her paintings. Portraits by the artist are filled with significance, and subjects in a still life look as if alive.
