Bahatska Nataliia, 51 years old

Information
About myself and my artworks

The main creative direction of Nataliia Bahatska is realism, magical realism, metamodern, portrait painting and graphics.

Metamodern style denotes fluctuations between two opposing concepts and the simultaneous use of them. So, in the series of Kyiv landscapes of Nataliia Bahatska, the actual city streets contrast with the dark silhouettes of separate people and are perceived as symbols or signs. In other paintings of the artist this style is manifested in a combination of symbolism and decorative style, in combination of realistic details with graphic, in the neighborhood of realism and abstraction.

Nataliia Bahatska paints in style complex and mixed, for example, based on the style of realism, she modifies it in different paintings, adding surrealism or elements of the style of cubism, or even creating a mystical, illusory environment around the realistic objects.

Nataliia Bahatska's comprehensive education determined her search. As a fashion designer, she creted series of paintings, where the girls are quite realistically depicted on the background of geometric planes, as though borrowed from cubism paintings.

Nataliia paints a number of still lifes - as a "replica" on the subject of Dutch and English classical still lifes with the accompanying attributes: vases, glasses, fruits and flowers appear on a deep dark background. All these objects and environments acquire their aura, glow, giving the viewer a kind of mystical realism. Elements of mysticism are butterflies, present in a number of female images: "Memoir", "Mock", "Oh you girlfriend ...". These images, concise in their graphic completeness, attribute us to the metamodern style, which is based on some contradictions, instability, incompleteness.
