Oil on canvas

Stretched canvas  |  Unframed

Says Maria Kostareva of her painting Persona: “This work was inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s similarly named film. Translated from Latin ‘persona’ means theatrical mask. I wanted to create an almost abstract image so that it would not be obvious whether different people are depicted or whether these are two faces of one person.”

Maria says of her series of urban moments: “It seems to me that when everyday spaces within a city become so utilitarian and impersonal, a place for the person themselves is paradoxically liberated. When you do not need to think about how to cross the street safely, you can devote those minutes to anything you like. If you switch off the automatic mode of repetitive actions, you can start to pay attention to visual images around you.
