THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
There is so much more to this painting of woman named “The grey one” than what it reveals to our eyes and our minds. This piece of art truly communicates the mastery of its creator, the artist Petr Ldin. His work also communicates the inner essence of his female subject, because it inherently encourages viewers to search beyond what is on the surface. The explosive color used on this painting along with the expressive gesture of the woman embody a complex mixture of beauty, power, harmony and energy. This is an image of dignified grace, which speaks to something impermanent and subtle, earthbound and yet everlasting.
GETTING TO KNOW PETR LDIN
Peter Ldin is an artist born in St. Petersburg and was raised around a family of artists as well. This inspired him to pursue his love of painting, and you can see his passion for life and his passion for art in everything he does. Peter Ldin puts a lot of focus on the female body, not always necessarily nudes, but just the expression of life in the female form.
