Maria Isaenok / Мария Исаенок
Maria was named the first Belarusian impressionist. Maria’s still life paintings are extremely attractive and contain some mystery in them. They exude romanticism and enigmatic uncertainty. There are a lot of golden-yellow and emerald green colors in her paintings – those are her favorite tones. “I used to love creating more complicated paintings. They contained a lot of “foreign” details and objects. But lately my stories have become much more simple and laconic,” says Maria. Often times her works also had crooked vases and jam dishes – that was a way to highlight the fragile beauty and vulnerability of the surrounding world. Now her objects are stable and more realistic.
