    Potato

    Springtime is depicted in the picture. The soil has frozen out from snow; the field engine has just turned up the soil, denuding it, while the sun is flooding the rural landscape with light. In the center we can see a inclining to the basket woman putting grown out potatoes inside to plant them in the soil so that a new crop grows from it. A woman is depicted on the background of the earth in a prayer bow which symbolizes "Mother Earth". Earth is the main thing in this picture. Everything is covered with soil; here it is shown as the Earth, where a person is born, lives and passes away. A little to the left we see a cartwheel that stands for the sun and the cyclical nature of time (spring-summer-autumn-winter and spring again, just like birth-life-fading and again birth and new fruits). Above that some boots and sledges are hanging, saying that winter is over and a new time has come. On the right we can see a village man. He gets his eyes on the far distant, while the pose demonstrates his readiness to plant potatoes. This picture is not only about the earth, but also about the family that lives to work and gives birth, just as the soil gives new fruits.

    A comeback

    In the center of the painting "A comeback" we can see a dome; it symbolizes peace, prosperity, tranquility, and faith. To the right of it in the distance you can see a hamlet. There is a cerulean sky crowded with clouds above it, and cultivated fields nearby - all these are symbols of the hearth, family happiness, slow-paced and restful life. To the left of the dome, by the road, we can see a sitting man. Upon closer examination, it becomes clear that this person is a servant. He has returned home from the battle-field, sat down to have rest and fetch his wind. The man zones out. On the one hand, he is the world’s defender, and, on the other, he has taken many lives, destructing the world. Here, near the Creed, he wants to break free from this burden of the past and selflessly go on his way home. This picture was painted after a creativity trip across Russia in 2019. Not far from Samara, in the deep countryside, I was attracted by the bright radiance in the fields. A local road led me to a gilded dome to be installed on a church. It glasses the whole village area: sky, land, people and life, acquiring in this golden radiance extra light, purity and warmth. The next morning I got the idea for a painting. Though the composition and characters have undergone several changes, following a repeated trip to these places and a meeting with the current officer to have survived in the hot spots, the main character acquired a clear outline straight off. Thus, "A comeback" got its clue point – a returning to spirituality, spiritual purity, peace and tranquility.

    Family

    Each and every year in spring, nature revives, the earth wakes up. Here is her naked flesh, waiting to be taken care of. In the center of the picture, а strong and sinewy man. His naked body is against the background of the earth. Each and every year he works on the land of his ancestors, as if fulfilling a covenant once given by someone. Earth is both a house and a deed, and the reason to live, and life itself. On his neck we can see a cross, as a mission fillip to the memory. It is his daughter, a girl in the light clothes next to him. There is a seed in her hands. She is the spring that grants rebirth, life, and the future. The theme of parents and children echoes the theme of renewability and infinity of life. Along the horizon, a village runs up the hill. People, houses, farmsteads, multiplying, repeating, as in mirrors, create a rhythm, reinforcing the idea of cyclicality. The line of houses ends with the temple, a unifying beginning. Generations of people, nature, environment... It’s all one in this world.

    Memory of generations

    May 9 is a special memorable day uniting generations. Grandmother sees her great- grandchildren off to the Immortal Regiment procession. They are her joy, her pride, and her propagation. This family remembers and honors those who gave their lives for the lives of subsequent generations, for this day, for this flowering spring. Grandmother hugs her great- granddaughter. Her hand is on the girl’s heart with the St. George ribbon, a symbol of Victory, pinned on. There is a portrait of his great-grandfather to have been to the war behind the boy's back. The girl is waiting for her brother to put on his boot. The pose of the great- grandson was inspired by the famous poster by L. Golovanov "Let's go down to Berlin." His gaze is directed forward: he is the future defender. Generations will be replaced; memory will live, uniting people.

    Life of baba Katya

    The heroine of the picture is Baba Katya from the village of Uzyan. Once chests accompanied a person all his life. The first chest (with dowry) was passed down to her from her mother. She got the blue one on her first months' salary. Chests are her life containers: there are rugs, tapestries, embroideries, letters, photographs ... Each item thread trails into the past, with life canvas weaving remembrance. And the traditional village rug is on her lap, slipping down on the chests and vanishing away from the picture. The rug resembles her life. Here they are, streaks of life, dark and light, interspersed with a thin red decorative thread.
