The road is one of the main symbols and images of any culture. People believed that the road is endowed with sacred powers, and revered it. The road has long attracted human new features, fresh impressions, alluring change. Therefore, the object of his research, I chose the road. My paintings devoted to the theme of human path. The theme of “the road” is autobiographical for me, because my family moved from the Far East of Russia to America. That is 9,000 miles. During our trip, I saw a lot of roads and I noted the special marks and sights that give a traveler direction. In my artwork, my intent is to depict how in a complex society, people seek are looking to build their own path. My interpretation of the road is the road to the future.
My artwork deals with these ideas through a relationship between the internal and external ways we deal with the world. My paintings reflect upon how people face life’s external rules, direction, and limitation and confront them using their inner freedom. This tension intrigues and fascinates me.
I work with acrylic paint on paper and canvas to transmit my ideas feelings using abstraction. My paintings seek to find a balance between simplicity and depth of thought. I use color to awaken feelings and texture to reference to reality. Also, I use abstracted images of road signs, lines, and tracks to stimulate audience to think about how they build their own direction of life. I ask them: Is it your road or road of your friends, parents? In my never ending journey, I passionately experiment with various art techniques. My process involves the use of energetic and bold strokes to add a masculine theme, which I combine with sensitive feminine details.
For me, it is very important to capture movement in my paintings. I work intuitively, and start my paintings without knowing what the end result will be. An extra layer of paint often dictates the way I develop my work. Ultimately, the work always comes out different than what I imagined at inception.
My art is a dialogue that shares my feelings, thoughts and experiences. I invite the audience to search for new ideas, explore new roads and go beyond the boundaries. My paintings give the viewers the opportunity to find a sense of direction, both in my painting and in their life.
"Tatiana Savchenko acrylics overlay. Marbleize and pulsate toward her paintings, “Letter”, “The Dancing Rose”, “The Prayer” and “The Desire” define an evolution of melding thoughts born of deep hues of blue and caramel. The volcanic movement like lava bursts. Settles. Like an aperture of a lens, her art opens and closes to a new level of awareness. A calm yearning of the senses are seen and not to be seen. A flow of passage to a higher source calls the viewer. Like dew drops on petals that nourish life further her art will grace any wall," James P. Satcher, Critic. Phantom Gallery, L.A., 2013.
