The solo exhibition by Inessa K. features 26 art pieces created over the period of one year. It includes original paintings, a few reproductions of Rembrandt’s self-portraits and Chinese calligraphy pieces by an aspiring 10 years old artist – Inessa’s daughter. The title “Slow Art” also reflects the way she creates her paintings.
I draw daily in my sketchbooks and some sketches grow into art pieces. During my travels I collect artefacts, and some may find their new home on canvases. When working on a painting, I carefully balance background, composition, dynamics of colours and shapes as if am choreographing a dance. I savoir the process. I do not rush. I will recognize the moment when the painting is complete. And before that moment comes, I am busy creating whimsical worlds losing track of time.
