PROJECT «Tea tradition»


Dedicated to the UK in 2014 in Russia.

"Tea tradition" - a new series of works by Irina Krasnova. Before we knew Irina, on the one hand, as artist easel art forms - painting and graphics, on the other, as a successful designer - the creator of the design for well-known brands such as Fruzhe, United Confectioners, Klin MC, Bosco di ciliegi and many others, contributing to the successful promotion of goods and services in Russia and abroad. This new series - a breakthrough in the art, as it is an attempt to combine a two seemingly incompatible areas - advertising and semantic easel art.


Let's see what the innovation.


At first glance, it is an advertisement of tea products, but what? Answer this question, you will not find, because the answer lies elsewhere - this is not advertising, but rather nostalgia for origins in the centuries-old family traditions oblivion when all matters are dealt with in close to family circle for mental conversations which was an essential attribute of a cup of hot flavored drink. Tea certainly hot. While he cools - peacefully flowing conversation. There is no place hectic and fast solutions. A cup of tea is easier to offer his beloved's hand and heart, confess love and choose a fascinating route to inquisitive kid, and even take out parental hands warm this healing elixir of good and warm-heartedness. In simple understandable to everyone means artist conveys the international character of this tradition. We know the Chinese, Japanese, English, Russian tea ceremony, which exists century. Everyone has their own unique features unique color. Details are different, but the meaning of one. Irina here deliberately avoids image faces and figures of their heroes. The main characters of the three works of art - hand and a cup of tea, but they are so expressive that need no comment. Each read his story here, and will identify themselves with it. Furthermore, for the viewer has more inquisitive useful information that allows you to select fun family route and get a recipe of traditional English cake supplied to tea. After all, for a friendly warm conversation the family table is very important to feel the whole range of positive emotions: soft light, beautiful, raduyuschuyu eye tableware, spicy flavor case, the new pie and its unique taste. Unfortunately, the last two can not be told in the picture, but it really impressed by what he saw, come home and prescription imprinted the picture is to extend the feeling of home holiday by preparing a gourmet meal and invite the whole family on traditional home tea. Unusual and very texture of the surface of the triptych. It is fully consistent with the author's intention. Of the small particles as puzzles, develops fabric of our lives and our relationship with the world around us, part of the which are and traditions. The basic idea of the triptych - not a good tradition byvat outdated as it bringing people together, making them clearer and lighter, and it is always true. And as you know, kindness and beauty will save the world.

A series of papers "On the motives of Japanese prints"


Japanese classical art prints - is the richest and insufficiently studied the formation of the global cultural heritage. At all times, the artists, including European ones, are looking to the east and there drew his inspiration. Closed to Europeans until the late nineteenth century art Japan has made a truly revolutionized the understanding of beauty. Its uniqueness was a difficult technique, allowing the Japanese masters ages 17-18 with the help of 7 - 9 the boards repeatedly applied picturesque lines and color spots, achieving a striking expression works. Get a huge variety of shades of color, sometimes it was beyond the power of many painters, not to mention the fact that their European counterparts, engravers, using no more than 2-3 boards.


Unfortunately contemporary art displaces cultural field contemporaries stunning in its plastic and harmonic art of Japanese prints. To date, nobody has this unique skill. But the emotional power the impact of these forces the robot to return to them again and again.


Contemporary reading of Japanese prints offers Irina Krasnova. In her works she recreated classic beauty style and color bygone era geisha and samurai, admiring the simple things that surround people in everyday life, a call to himself in thought and dialogue with its reflection in the mirror, tranquility and movement, hidden in statics.


Not owning engraving technique, Irina gave watercolor wonder exactly what wealth of feelings and emotions inherent in the originals. In her works the viewer finds all richness of color relationships and the subtlest tones and nuances of color that reflect not only the nuances of the human soul but also the variety and fine the harmony of the world in which we live.
