The structural volumetric brushstroke of Anastasia Kraineva opens to the viewer no less than the plot itself. The characteristic s stylistic of A. Kraineva's performance can be distinguished as a special accent of the exhibition".
The idea of the greatness and beauty of the world, the ability of nature and thought to awaken, rebirth in all its manifestations is the main emotion of the project. You can Especially feel the triumph of vital energy and strength due to the contrast of the calmness of the winter city and the irrepressibility of colors in the author's works.
VOLUME OF COLOR is an attempt to adopt the concept of the reincarnation and infinity of all living things through a specific time period of the year, which, on the one hand, brings destruction, and on the other hand, gives the necessary peace so that all the forces of nature are reborn and the life cycle begins again.
On the artist's works figurative images appear and dissolve in an abstract landscape, which produces an unexpected impression on the viewer. This approach, combined with the texture of its characteristic brushstroke, allow to enjoy contemplating the picture endlessly, opening up new color and semantic accents.
