ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever.

Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
by
12/1/16 Posted 2/11/16

As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true.

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.”  
by
8/29/16 Posted 8/29/16

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.” These words, uttered in 1966, characterized a paradigm shift. These words, especially for women, formed the nucleus of the emergence and omnipotence of sin. As women came into existence, they became the synonym of sin and their bodies the essence of sin. It is not an accident that the woman’s body, rather than the man’s, was framed as sin. Forever, well, ever since forever existed, the man’s body was epitom... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at National Art Museum of China, Beijing  
by
8/26/16 Posted 8/30/16

The National Art Museum of China in Beijing has interesting oil painting collections, but when I visited it many years ago, the only oil paintings on display were a group of portraits of political and bigness bigwigs, uniformly done in the quite pompous and imperial fashion, therefore the only works worth seeing were some Chinese paintings and here are a couple of such samples. The 1960 landscape "Xiling Gorge" by FU Baoshi was a bold presentation of an often painted subject - one of the renown... [more]

My Featured Painting: Birches  
by
8/23/16 Posted 8/23/16

Nurtured by many Russian novels while growing up, I developed a special feeling towards the omnipresent birches, which not only aptly set the scenes and evoke the particular melancholy especially associated with Russia and Russian people, and finally, I made effort in 2006 to try to capture such feelings with a painting titled Birches, which is currently showing at the McGuire Real Estate gallery in Berkeley as part of the “Crowded by Beauty” exhibit. I love the slender shapes of the... [more]

by
8/19/16 Posted 8/26/16

The main museum in my hometown, Manchurian city Shenyang, Liaoning Provincial Museum, boasted some magnificent artifacts and Chinese paintings, due to the fact that the last imperial dynasty was originated from Manchuria, and had kept a rich trove of art treasures in Shenyang, especially during and after World War II, when Manchu elites retreated back to northeastern China. Like many cities in China, Shenyang has experienced rapid expansion in the last decade or so, resulting in the move of it... [more]
