THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
This telling piece by artist by artist Rusudan Khizanishvili speaks of the simplicity of country life. This scene, which is familiar across countries, continents and centuries, cannot be placed in a certain time or location. Two women encounter each other on a country road to stop for a chat, surrounded by strangely colored greenery and a wild boar at the forefront that they are apparently unafraid of. This is the scene where all life and all that we need to survive comes from and the scene that we, eventually, return to. The artist’s signature-style use of color and black on white deliberately displaces this image from any time or place, making it all the more familiar to us as a concept.
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.
