I am working with my “Golden Ratio” art collection. This is a new step in developing an art technique that helps to explain what I want to share with you.
Our world has an amazing golden proportion. You can see it everywhere. Our perception of beauty is dependant on our Golden Ratios. World culture including architecture, music, and art also relies on it. The Golden Ratio supports our world’s harmony.
For many years I have been exploring how to share sunlight from colors, especially from acrylic paints. Acrylic has great potential because of carries bright colors However, these paints are complicated to apply to the process of making art because of how quickly they dry. So, preparing the surface becomes very important.
How can we capture light and energy from each color? How do we prepare traditional canvas surfaces to illuminate colors and mitigate drying speed? I had these and many others question . . . For answers, I have used as primary resources the art guide of Golden and Liquitex paint’s production companies, from active artists wise advice, and drawing from my own experience.
I hope the result helps me share with you what my heart wants to say, “We people have one home – Earth, we are a part of nature, and everyone from us has the amazing potential of humanity. It is Beaty and Harmony of Life.
The first artwork from the new collection will be exhibited at the Draper Signature Apartments on May 15 on corporate exhibition.
This is not only the artist’s result. I am very grateful to my lovely husband Joff for his amazing support, wisdom, and patience.
About “Golden Ratio” collection
The is my newest collection and I developed a new technique to apply to canvas what I could only do on panel. All in nature is made up of Golden Ratio. Our brain, our body proportions, flowers, and trees.
When we understand the golden ratio, and how it manifests, we understand our complete connection with nature, our unity with the universe, and how we are part of a whole. Discord happens when we believe ourselves to be unique and apart from the whole.
A belief in only self covers the silver source energy we all have access to when we understand our part in the whole. Silver source is a connection with oneself… silver is a connection with the universe. Silver symbolically cleans our inner world. Silver source is the energy of life in many ethnic fairy tales.
I visited a river near where Pushkin lived that inspired his fairy tale referencing silver source. That river was really a silver color.
With love, Olga
