Coloristic mood in landscapes Julia Pinezhaninova

Julia Pinezhaninova - young St. Petersburg artist who at the very beginning of his career, was able to clearly and convincingly express themselves and their creative credo. Classes at the studio Honored Artist of Russia, the legendary teacher, Professor D.A.Shuvalov (1932-2013) played a huge role in the development of the artist. The phenomenal colorist gave his pupil the ability to feel, to "hear" color. While studying at the St. Petersburg Academy of Art and Industry named AL Stieglitz in "Painting and restoration of" Julia has acquired solid skills of drawing. The landscape became a favorite genre painting of the artist. This is due, primarily, to the fact that landscape involves working in the open air, which provides a rich opportunity for experimenting with color combinations, transmission depth of the landscape, light and air and mood. A separate chapter in the work of Julia Pinezhaninova is the architectural landscape of St. Petersburg - the hometown of the artist, in the historical and artistic traditions which she grew up and developed as a person. In the works of 2010-2011 the artist creates a kind of portrait of the selected location. "Sadovaya Street", "Kolomna", "Kalinkin Bridge" written by a wide color planes. The image of the city passed to calm pastel tones, in a palette dominated by cobalt, ocher, pearl gray. The image of the city is filled with melancholy and a little sad notes. In such a scheme and mood depicted architectural landscapes Chernigov, Finland, France, Switzerland this period. The turning point in the work of the artist was her trip to Italy in 2012. Significantly changing palette Julia Pinezhaninova, it is enriched with new nuances and shades. It is no coincidence in the Imperial Academy of Arts in the second half of the XVIII-XIX centuries where was a tradition of the best students of pensioner trips to Italy to improve the skills and explore the beautiful monuments of the Renaissance. Modern Italy does not cease to admire monuments, masterpieces of painting in museum collections, bright colors, vivid colors, various forms of the landscape. "Other" the air of the Apennines, burning your passion, brings a new emotion in the work of Julia Pinezhaninova. The coloring of her works became intense, deep, deep. Changing the stroke, he became a bold and determined, expressive and three-dimensional. Delight Julia before the Italian scenery is transmitted through the expression of its work to the viewer. Changing the attitude of the artist to the idea and content landscape. The artist selection is driven by other motives depicted scenery - not to portray the "postcard" recognition of the place, and convey their intimate relationship to him, piercing joy of meeting with the new and awesome to share with the audience felt emotions. If earlier the landscape associated with a specific place, it is now the artist is trying to convey an image caught, work is not a "portrait", and shaped. Italy has allowed Julia Pinezhaninova rethink the main components of painting - color, style of work with the plane, the texture of the stroke, experienced and transmitted mood. Italian studies marked evolution in the work of the young artist. First of all, the evolution touched her own mood, awareness of the possibility and the need to reveal their inner relation to the represented, to share it with the audience, expose your piercing feelings and overflowing emotions. The mood in landscapes changed by touching and meditate admiring the architectural dominants to focus on their own vivid emotions expressed by through a rich palette of colors. Petersburg Landscape in the works of the artist was soon filled with "Italian" mood. Although the city does not cease to be in color North, St. Petersburg series shows a new mood and attitude. Julia a new look at his hometown. It focuses on the instant, in the titles of the works appear an indication of the present moment - whether during the day or season of the year, "Nicholas Cathedral. Early winter morning "(2013)," Winter Isaac "(2013)," Walk in the White Nights "(2014)," Autumn Day "(2014)," Autumn Night Karpovka "(2014)," Morning on Fontanka "( 2014). Transfer point, volatility and mobility of the time and technical performance of works have in common a creative manner Julia Pinezhaninova with Impressionism. Paris studies also have not avoided new approaches to Julia color, expressive smear transmitted image. Sacre Coeur sinks into the sunset in the "View of the Church (2013). "Paris by Night" (2013) - a city snatched from the window of a passing car. In a greased "film frame" the artist conveys the image of a dynamic city. Works by Juliya Pinezhaninova due to the color intensity, impulsive strokes, achieving transmission of light and air are full of energy, feeling joyful, life-affirming beginning. New impulses give rise to a new rhythm works of Julia, they are musical.
