Artwork of the Day: Memories Smell Like Flowers by Ivan Alifan
Today’s Artwork of the Day is an introspective, sensual piece entitled “Memories Smell Like Flowers” (oil on canvas, 48″ x 36″), by Ivan Alifan. Ivan is published by Anna Art Publishing, an Ontario, Canada-based publisher that also represents the work of artists Anna Razumovskaya, Lucy Liasheva and Ludmila Yudina.
Here’s what Ivan has to say about his artistic process:
“Art is beyond an image of perception and creativity. Art is part of the past, present, future, where one can interpret their own view. Painting allows me as an artist to express my strengths or my vulnerability. Each brushstroke builds up a story, a life and, a passion.”
This piece certainly holds a story, a life and a passion, wouldn’t you say? What’s your interpretation? Anna Art Publishing is registered to exhibit at Artexpo New York 2011, so if you make it to the show, you may well have the opportunity to get a firsthand interpretation from the artist or publisher. 🙂
