About myself and my artworks:

Tatiana's work is characterized by a successful combination of poetry and prose, openness and enthusiasm of children's amazement with the wisdom, balance of an experienced specialist, extremely sensitive to the color component. An essential feature of the plastic construction of Krasnaya's works is the sophistication and variety of color solutions, the absence of any stamps and aesthetic stereotypes.

Tatiana Krasna represents a powerful body of artists, for whom the established form of easel painting is the most attractive, and the understanding of painting is based on a responsible attitude to its professional features and, above all, to the creative process itself. Preserving her devotion to painting as a "sacred craft", with each work she confirms the miracle of the transformation of ordinary dye into a highly artistic work of art. Always working in the stream of figurative painting, the artist in each work finds new means of plastic language, proves the inexhaustible possibilities of color. Conditional, simplified elements of the everyday environment of the surrounding realities in her paintings serve as distinctive signs, play the role of guides, send into the world of a new convincing artistic reality. It seems that the primitive sketch form turns into a deceptive figurativeness, but complicated by the refined structure of color, the unusual structure of space-time. The impeccable harmonious color solution turns into a picturesque metaphor, a life-affirming anthem of humanity and beauty. Fascinated by the real environment, inspired by a personal positive worldview, the artist discovers the special nature of the material world, its internal secret connections. The motif chosen by everyday people unfolds each time into a powerful plastic event.

Through a plastic metaphor, a complex and refined system of combining different shades of color, the personal feeling of the world is transformed into a picturesque - sublime, joyful. Lyrical, contemplative or cheerful, but always positive - human and harmonious.

The special temporal-spatial construction inherent in the master forever stops the rapid flow of life into plotless dreams. Gathers moments into an extraordinary, timeless conditional situation bordering on a symbolic worldview - its compositions are mostly characterized by flatness, generalizing solution, decorative coloring. A balanced, harmonious sense of the world is transformed into a plastic metaphor, raising the everyday world to another register, illuminated by another dimension. This is a territory of unity, kinship of the past with the present. Understanding of different times, nostalgia for harmony, the dream of a moral connection between generations. Peculiar memories of harmony. Rejecting the illusory-sensual way of reproducing nature, the artist prefers such a plastic solution, where the world of everyday realities points not to life, but to being deprived of everything superfluous, trivial, tumultuous and fussy, and the signs of the environment are sublime and supernatural images.

If in the early work of the master tended to the picture with a philosophical color, with a characteristic combination of elements of different genres in a single metaphorical multi-figure composition. Today, more often than other favorite genres - portrait and still life - the artist turns to the landscape.

Extremely attractive for the master is the process of transforming the natural landscape into a landscape painting with the addition of elements of the domestic genre. In recreating the environment, Tatiana demonstrates impeccable, virtuoso mastery of various plastic systems. For each unique image, she looks for a special plastic pronunciation. Dense, tactile pastiness of form-forming colors changes to a light and transparent, expansive-planar surface; rich expressive color in pastel, light silver. Thus, the everyday world of the frozen winter twilight of an ordinary village turns into a refined enchanted image. A familiar piece of the sea coast to the distant world of dream dreams.

Artist Tatiana Krasna is resistant to fleeting spectacular models and artistic strategies, she always focuses her attention on deep shaping problems, is in constant development and search for their own cultural identity. No matter what plastic system the author refers to - each work radiates positive benevolent emotions, persistently returning us to the original meaning of life. The most diverse pictorial modeling gives the master's works a true artistic and ethical value.

The most organic for the personal creative position of Tatiana Krasnaya is the artistic statement of the poetic integrity of the world more effective against disharmony than the destructive dissolution in it or its powerless denial. "Art is given to us so as not to die from the truth," F. Nietzsche emphasized. Tatiana Krasna contrasts the destructive, dramatic modern worldview with a picturesque metaphor of poeticized reality, organically coexisting in the world with a premonition of primary harmony and beauty.
