Nina Reznichenko took part in many exhibitions and galleries (more than 30) around the world in Ukraine, Russia, USA, and Europe. She is a member of the Ukrainian National Society of Artists, member of international association of Artists “Art without Borders”. her brush is brave and often touched with abstract style, with difference between light and shadow in her paintings, the texture of the color’s strokes.
“What would our humankind have been without flowers? If flowers had not existed… Would our character, our moral, our ability for the beauty and happiness be the same?… Just imagine for a second that our planet does not know flowers… The entire world of elaborate sensitivity would have slept forever at the bottom of our hearts… An endless universe of colors and shades would have revealed its beauty only in part… Miraculous harmony of light would have remained unknown to us… When we are in love, memories about the flowers, that we have once seen and inhaled, flow back to us and feel up our consciousness and sensitivity with familiar pleasures… Happiness without flowers would have been shapeless, like a horizon of the sea or the sky…” There is no need to add any other comment to this ode to flowers, to this miracle of nature, written by the subtle dreamer Maurice Maeterlinck.
However, they can be easily illustrated with delicate “picturesque essays” by the Lviv artist Nina Reznichenko, whose delicate flowers of dreams, flowers of hints and flowers of women allure us with moments of the world in its perfection.
When you look at subtle reveries of the images created by Nina Reznichenko, you anticipate the happiness that fills up the world around you and becomes apparent in every moment, if we allow ourselves to be happy. “Sounds” of Nina’s painting take us back to those illuminated moments, when we admired tiny and tender petals before we put a flower into a vase and enjoyed the moment of looking at this creation, or when we gave flowers to our beloved to make them smile…
Nina has been drawing flowers her whole life. It takes her quite long to settle her mind and to get concentrated, but she works extremely fast, as if all in one breath. She never paints from life, but during the breaks between drawing sessions she exploits all available aesthetic of the world, like nature, literature, arts, music, to get saturated with positive feelings and impressions. The moment, when she takes a brush in her hand is not a prologue, but a culmination; it is the moment, when emotions get materialized. Her drawing is an impulse, when with a help of clearly sensed colors of a blurred background, a few texture spots, and effective contrasting accents the artist creates a mood, which can be melancholic, loudly joyful, mysteriously half-worded, or overtly sensitive. And it does not matter, whether it appears in the image of a woman or a flower, as they mean the same for thousands of years. These are women and flowers, entrusted by nature to become symbols of the beauty of earthly life. From that time on “Linger a bit longer. You are so nice!” has become the very mission and the essence of the art. Nina Reznichenko’s painting is the territory of paused moments of beauty are ceased in its state of perfection, the beauty, which has been read between the lines of classical poetry, eaves dropped in classical music, or seen in dreams… Welcome to enjoyment.
