2nd place at the International Pastel Competition "PASTELium" in 2020, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
«Parfaite exécution d'une nature morte en pastel avec une composition originale qui parait classique et qui pourtant est trés contemporaine» Michelle Caussin-Bellon (President of The French Association of pastelists) «Stunning realism! Very skillfully handled.» Helen Iaea (President of the pastelist Society of Hawaii (USA))
To enhance the visual effect, I embodied it with materials that have the most tactile sensations-pastels and velvets. The black velvet background absorbs light and creates an extra depth of space. And the texture of velvet, combined with pastels, approaches the texture of living colors, creating an effect of hyperreality. And making them almost tangible. When creating the picture, high-quality art materials were used: Pastel Schmincke and Sennelier, velvet cardboard Italy.
Artwork is decorated in a wooden baguette and carefully packed for transportation. After receiving the picture, it is necessary to protect it with glass. To preserve the perception, we recommend using museum anti-reflective glass. When making a design, we recommend creating an air layer between the surface of the drawing and the glass. To do this, you can use the products of FrameTek (econospace) or similar.
Proper design will keep the colors clean and bright for hundreds of years.
