An excellent Russian contemporary. She studied in St. Petersbourg and belong to the group of new Russian artist who delight in details .They love flowers and exclusive textiles. The dull sad colors of the Stalinist generation has been exchanged with strong vibrant colors and a wealth of new harmonies .She is fresh and avoid nostalgia, compared to contemporary American artists who's portrait paintings try to capture another century's taste.

Denmark's fantastic painter, in away she is not better than others from other countries. But she captures the Danish light so exactly that it describes both temperature, time of the day and in which season. For a Dane who didn't live in Denmark for the last 30 years, it still gives precise illusions even of the smell of the air in that room . I used all my grown up life to look at the colors change in different lights and temperatures. Sitting out in all kind of weathers and temperatures trying to catch the exact difference between colors. I have worked on the feeling that true realism lies in how exact you are, when catching this differences. It's not about the shape or correct perspective or even how photographic you can reproduce the details.Nothing of this gives a real feeling, if You can't see how colors react next to each other
and in certain lights and therefor can't catch them.
Marc Rotko knew this and with only two or 3 colors, he could give such a strong feeling of truth, no details needed and no perspective. And still you are there in front of the sea in that exact light!
Well this is about redheads and back to them.

A nice and fresh painting

Look at the differences in the two pictures flower sizes changed and the background details too.
The first picture could be a sketch for the next. A copy painter would be more exact with details!
