Anastasiia Danilenko is a young artist, whos area of occupation is in painting, and, moreover, such a traditional painting genre as a portrait. Although her portraits cannot be called traditional at all.
«I write images and forms. Color spots and lines. My characters have their eyes closed. Without looking into a person’s eyes, we are able to see much more» — says Anastasia.
Her portraits capture relationship with the world. Anastasiia Danilenko’s portraits are confessional, regardless from the most imprinted image. Artist is not concerned about the specific appearance a lot, as the very essence of the shell that hides a person in itself. The figurative load is carried by the gesture and the general position of the body itself.
Anastasiia Danilenko always starts with black, painting over the entire surface of the canvas with black paint and writes on it with her favorite range of green and pink colors. The colors seem saturated on the black underdrawing, the image has a black contour and a rigid structure. Out of this black nothingness and subconscious Anastasiia, as a sculptor, carves alluring and catchy images full of her frankness.
