Four Fashion Seasons
Quadriptych "Fashion Seasons": 1 "Spring", 2 "Summer", 3 "Autumn", 4 "Winter"
Oil on 4 equal linen canvases of 9" x 27.5" each (or 22,86 cm x 70 cm)
Size in total 39.4" x 29.6" (or 100 x 70 cm)
Location: Kyiv, Ukraine
Inspired by the changing seasons and our tendency to dress according to the weather, my artwork revolves around the concept of the Four Seasons of Nature. To represent this idea, I divided the painting into four equal canvases, each depicting a different season: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
For each part of the Artwork, I used different color gamuts wich symbolizing the unique characteristics of each time of year. The prints of Lilia Poustovit collection 2017 were used as decorative elements of fabrics. And I incorporated the architectural elements of both the Old and New city of Kyiv (Ukraine) to symbolize the vibrant and colorful atmosphere that people bring to the streets of these cities.
The painting was additionally primed with black ground and black imprimatura. Then a layer of oil paints was applied. For the image of the architectural elements, I used the texture paste so these elements on my Artwork are volume. It was interesting for me to connect Four Parts.
