About the artist:
Alexandra Kruglyak Alexandra was born in 1971 in the southern part of Ukraine. Her desire to paint was evident from an early childhood where despite lack of resources and training, she showed tremendous promise in her early expressions. As time went by Alexandra took her hobby more ...
Alexandra’s approach to her work is sheer dedication and passion. According to her, she only paints when she manages to achieve the inner unity with the subject regardless of its scheme or ideology. The main message of her work is modern positivism in its basic form. She prefers to work with live subjects on portraits in order to catch complimentary details such as aspects of personality, which a photograph cannot relay. Her still live compositions have a definitive style indigenous to the European Old World technique saturated with realism and simplicity of figures and forms. She tends to discard the non-essential and concentrate on the formative qualities of the object. The colours tend to be bright but warm and the entire style is that of restraint. However, the restraint does not constrict but rather highlights the intense undercurrent of emotions she experiences while painting.
Today Alexandra’s art has found its way into many private collections in Germany, England, Ukraine, Russia and the United States. Her latest work is mainly done in oil and acrylics, and according to her “the inspiration can come from anything, even observing a compilation of random colours”. Currently Alexandra’s paintings are presented in the “NorDys Gallery”, Birmingham, AL and ”La Bella Donna”, Anniston, AL.
She is forever grateful to her fans that look forward to her new work and she is hoping to attract many more admirers to her art.
