...Roman pottery from a museum. It took me a while to realise that mass produced goods (and foods!) is a sign of progress and prosperity. They require less time and effort so everybody can get more creative doing something else. As a print, people can afford any artwork to put on their walls now, and it's wonderful. Handmade (if it's any good) is a luxury for a few collectors to whom it rightly belongs. Romans made few first steps on the road of civilization, we came a very long way since. Luddites will moan, but the world they advocate for is Dark Ages, endless repetative manual labour, ignorance, early death and deseases. This is what being close to nature really is...
I'm a homemaker and an artist. I used to work in planetary science. My
native city is Moscow.
I am a dreamer. I enjoy painting lanscapes, still life, portraits,
animals and abstract pictures. I like creating figurative story-telling works
reminding illustrations from books never written or still images from
non-existing films. I like playing with
wide range of media (soft & oil pastels, acrylic, oil, pen and ink,
pencils, digital, photography, textile) and their combination. I like to challenge myself to make one of the kind rather than mass-produced work using different combination of media and variuos subjects. Always experimenting and finding new exciting possibilities. Per aspera ad astra, post tenebras lux. The new website I am working on http://site.linandara.co.uk/ My Old Web
I write what I think and feel. I'm sorry if I offended anybody. Any strong opinion could potentially offend people who think opposite. I belive in free speech and that everyone should be kind, thinking for themselves and honest, not politically correct. Being a human, I can make mistakes. If you prove me wrong, I will be happy to change my point of view.
