Russian artist Anna Nemchinova was born and raised beyond the Polar circle. From the early childhood she is familiar with the severity, beauty, and contrasts of the north. Its external coldness combines with the internal power and fire. Scarce at the first glance but diverse in closer study landscapes impress with variety. Long dark nights flare up with the wonder of polar lights. However, Anna’s works are not exclusively about the north. Her art is more of a search of the Russian soul, a reflection of how she sees herself in every epoch and every generation, despite the hardships. The language of folklore in her art and the Russian national ornaments intertwine with the contemporary 90s and 00s - the time of Anna’s youth. Story-like and real, sublime and common, deep and obvious - both riddles and answers, enlightenment and weakness in attempts to grasp the unknown are all at once present in Annas works. Moscow became Anna’s second home, but the North will forever be in her heart. Her works, just as the rest of the modern culture, are a synthesis - a mixture of relevant aesthetics interacting with and enriching traditional Russian ornaments, domestic images rethought through the logic of dreams, patterns taking up the leading roles of the composition. Anna creates with mixed media and uses various materials from both painting and illustration.
