Stretched canvas  |  Unframed

Says Maria Kostareva of her painting Untitled: “Since moving to a big city, I’ve become so interested in the ‘passerby’. The thought that every anonymous person, every passerby, has an equally rich life, each is a full being. I now often depict the ‘passerby’ in my work. Who are they? What do they think about? There is always opportunity for different interpretations.”

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.”
