Prediction. It was finished on the 22nd of February. And it was abandoned wet on the easel. Created intuitively, with a global premonition of something incredible, this abstract portrait of a horse evokes a sense of magic and mystery. The silhouette of the horse's head is manifested by indistinct dark contours. It is as if the horse is watching you and wants to tell you something, to warn you about something. You try to walk away, but those eyes won't let you go, and wherever you are, you can feel its gaze. Yes, I felt something. So the last painting in the peaceful life is called Prediction. The painting was sold at the latest exhibition of Ukrainian artists in Copenhagen, From Ukraine with Love. The exact copy of it is impossible.
I was born in a small Ukrainian town in 1971. I have never been taught art. But I draw and paint every moment of my life. As a child, I lived in a house with lots of animals and observed their behavior. I learned to portray the emotions and movements of pets on her own since there was no art school in the town. Fleeing the war, I appeared in Denmark where I am based now. With my brush, I research emotions with the aim of opposing and finding common ground between human and animal psychology. In my works, I strive to awaken empathy and pay tribute to animals that fill our lives with devotion and love, and inspire us with their natural beauty. I speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.
