Marina Astakhova’s caleidoscopic art.

Marina Astakhova is a multidisciplinary artist. A distinctive features of her creative method are vibrating abstract geometric ornaments based on the traditions of Russian avant-garde, op-art, orphism and post-painterly, hardedge abstraction.

Abstract art in the understanding of the author should stimulate the conscious process of contemplation. It connects the artist’s process of making with a viewer’s experience of looking, both bases on deep concentration. Abstract art is to highlight the complex nature of seeing.

The work is to observe nature in the multiplicity of its dimensions, and transform personal observation of the world through the sequence of elements on the canvas.

In the artistic practice of Marina Astakhova, geometric compositions with acrylic on canvas resonate with interior sculptures and panels made of wood. The artist’s work is characterized by a constant structural experiments with colours, shapes, artistic techniques and materials in search for harmony of all elements.
