My message is to awaken, to encourage reflection, to open hearts. The idea is to immerse the viewer in a certain atmosphere where they can feel like they are part of the work, as if plunging into a kind of trance. Art is a figurative understanding of reality, the result of my inner perception of the world, and if this coincides with the perception of the viewer, then a powerful synergy arises. I share my thoughts.
The emotional, screaming paintings of the artist are filled with inner feelings: she is frank with the viewer and the viewer feels it. Hence her success and desire to create. Using the language of visual images, she seeks to talk to people about what excites them.
Her work is a way to reach out, to awaken feelings, to make you think. It is based on personal experiences, reflections on the role and place of women in this complex and ambiguous world. Each of her paintings is a deep drama based on personal experience and feelings. Her picturesque canvases amaze and excite. Sincerity is read instantly. It's impossible to lie here. Creativity Irina Onopenko from the first moment of acquaintance gives rise to a sense of belonging.
