About the artwork

We may divide the oeuvre of Svetlana into white and black series, each with their own expression and theme, especially with an own psychological depth. Since the paintings tell stories, which are full of symbolism and memories, they may be counted to the contemporary conceptual realism. Some of the paintings are inspired by society and are about human vulnerability.

Her goal is to have the beholder stand still, to withdraw just for a moment from reality, the here and now and open up for the captured moment of the painting. This 'In the Forest' would be a good example.
