I started painting landscapes very early, in Moscow, where I attended art school. Work from observation “en plain air” helped to connect to other environments and landscapes later on, here in the USA. Watercolor became my favorite medium, where the color transformation and mood are often dictated by chance and its fluid texture, opening a door to the abstract experience of color form, and the expression of the emotional state of its context. The fast-paced process—"alla prima" dictates the immediacy of my reflections and helps me to stay in a moment. Its ephemeral qualities inspire my temporal and installation work.
