About the collection
Olga Kondratska art project “River of Life” is unique in concept and development. In the collection of paintings of the same name – more than a hundred paintings.
At the exhibition, which opened at the Taras Shevchenko National Museum on October 9, the author will present his unique authorial technique to visitors. The exhibition consists of separate thematic blocks, creating a single composition, which includes more than 20 works. You will see “fragments from life” of forest lakes lost in the greenery, calm flat rivers and rapid mountain streams interspersed with waterfalls, city streets washed by rain, and for contrast, “portraits” of seas and oceans, steppes and deserts …
“River of Life” – these are beautiful phenomena and moments of nature seen, felt and transferred to canvases. This is a reflection of the artist’s inner world, her mental organization, her attitude to life.
Water is one of the most “influential” substances on Earth. For millions of years, she has been involved in global planetary processes. With its help, the climate stabilized, landscapes formed … Then a miracle happened: life was born in water. If you don’t think about it, then it seems that everything is in order with this gift of nature. And if you “dig” – take an interest in statistics, listen to the opinion of biologists, ecologists, it turns out that the rivers that used to be full-flowing, gradually shallow and turn into small and feeble, and those, in turn, disappear without a trace from the face of the Earth. Having talked with the inhabitants of Ukrainian villages, you are surprised to learn that for many, the opportunity to drink from a well of icy water on a hot afternoon turned into a dream. “Water is a miracle,” – today this expression is not only figurative, it largely reflects the real state of things. If you do not take effective measures to protect water resources, clean up rivers and lakes, and improve the environment, the situation with drinking water can turn into a big problem for all of humanity.
An artist is a priori observant and insightful person, sometimes he sees something that others do not see or do not want to notice. Olga Kondratska sees, notices and responds to the challenges of our time through contemporary painting.
The “River of Life” – e “The River of Life” is a painting of action, the joys of life, birth and flowering, then a painting of action, the joys of life, birth and flowering, and at the same time is a reminder to contemporaries: you should try very hard to preserve the beauty and the purity of our beautiful blue planet.
Conducting master classes for children at the exhibition, including the development of associative thinking and color, Olga Kondratskaya is guided by the conviction that those who have been involved in the art of painting since childhood will not harm Nature.
