Artist Statement of Iryna Kitaieva

When it comes to technique I am influenced by both Figurative Art and Abstract Expressionism. I tend to apply undiluted paint to the canvas and mix my colours upon on the canvas as I work. I enjoy painting colourful impasto abstract paintings and often use a palette knife to help create a three dimensional sense of space in my work. Always seeking the correct load and overall balance of colour. My complex abstract paintings are inspired by a love of nature. I strive to express emotions and thoughts through artistic forms, with these impressions materialising through the layered paint of my compositions.
