About the WorkIt is important to Liudmila Kondakova to make people happy with her art. Her technique is very complex, and her studio looks like an alchemist’s laboratory, set up to fuse reality and a dream. However, she does not include any complicated concepts that require you to read long articles with obscure, and unfamiliar terms. Her art is simple and pleasing to the eye of the viewer but is also full of photographic details that enchant your way through a city skyline, a scene, or on the object. She expects her art to be understood with the heart, from a person’s creative center. She hopes that people looking at her art will look at it with romance, light, and possibility in their heart. She wants people to look at her art with parts of their creative spirit that can appreciate all the facets of living.
In “Colors of Nice” Kondakova goes back to her love for architecture and shows us once more why she is a master in her craft. Her background in Russian iconography shines through. Detail and color merge to bring to life an amazing work of art. The subtle nature of the artwork is enhanced by the color and the morning light that brings another element to the artwork. The street lights against the morning sun, are a reminiscence from the night left behind. The morning sun is the promise of a new day.
While looking at Liudmila Kondakova’s art one gets the longing to travel and explore places unknown. Places that are just as magical as a Kondakova’s painting. “Colors of Nice” is no different, and while you look at, the artwork, you start wondering if all of Nice looks like a Kondakova painting. The beauty in the buildings is portrait through architecture, and the green and orange color. “Colors of Nice” is an 11 x 8 – inch gouache on paper.
