I will tell you about my first concious abstract painting, which became a vector in my work.
In 2016, I quit my job and went nowhere. Then I understood what I didn’t want to do, but what I want – I was scared to confess. There was a quiet and timid glow in my soul: “Masha, you want to be a free artist!” What was the reason for the fear – this is absolute freedom and uncertainty, I want to draw, but what?
Often these thoughts about the future took place in the open air, while looking at the stars. Then I began to take an interest in meditation, read more about the creative path of other artists, listen to a lot of ambient music and I wanted to draw this state of immersion at the same time deeply into myself and a dialogue with the stars.
At first, I painted one part of the picture, it looked like a city at night. Later, the second part of the picture appeared and it acquired new meanings.
I remember when I wrote it on a small balcony, I dreamed of my own studio. In the process of creativity, I plunge into a state close to a trance and do not remember exactly what I think about. I can say that I am not writing by myself, but as a medium. This picture is about the connection with the place of power – space. At the time of painting, the night sky for me was calm and absolute beauty.
After a long time and writing new paintings, this one remains one of my favorites.
While writing this text, I burst into tears from the surging emotions. I hope this story will give more inspiration to people who dream of getting creative, but do not know where to start. Be sure to start with yourself)
