THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Young artist Rusudan Khizanishvili uses mixed media on canvas to create this thought-provoking figurative scene bringing cool, dark shades together to induce a feeling of action and chaos. Disfigured faces, bare feet, and other body parts are strewn across the canvas and on top of each other, telling the tempestuous story of Judith beheading Holofernes. While the story of Judith, the fair widow, is one that has often been recounted in visual arts, this is truly a unique take on that tale that leaves us with the impression of the overall sentiment of the story. A perfect centerpiece that is bound to provoke conversation and controversy.
GETTING TO KNOW RUSUDAN KHIZANISHVILI
Born to the country of Russia in the year 1979, Rusudan Khizanishvili is a contemporary artist who lives and works in the country of Georgia. She takes her influence from a number of artists that came before her, her work a reflection of the history of art while also putting her own spin on their styles. She primarily uses oil in her paintings to create a unique texture on each one. The results are paintings that verge on nightmarish with their interesting takes of the human form and of places that appear as if they could only be real in the dream world.
