Born in Saint Petersburg in 1975, Marina Slajkovskaia - a painter based in Italy, is recognized for her pursuit of perfection in every painting.
She gathers inspiration in the beauty of Mediterranean landscapes. The colors of the countryside and the sea have allowed the painter to delve into the exploration of perfection through the oil colors used with a great technical capacity.
Having already developed a strong international presence, Marina's works have appeared all over the world including important participation at the exhibitions of Landmark Art Center in London, Louvre Museum in Paris, and also, she had participated in many exhibitions and competitions at national level in the course of many years, attracting the attention of art lovers, critics and TV media, sharpening her hyper-realistic technique of extraordinary precision.
"Charm in the poetics of the real"
Delicate floral motifs are before our eyes, while flowers and leaves recall memories of a nostalgic poetry, going up the slope of a romantic and dreamy fantasy. This is the primary character of the splendid figurative narration of the artist Marina Slajkovskaia: a grasp of the immediate beauty of reality to carry it softly into a dream dimension.
The image is clear with a veristic interpretation that reveals a magical realism in the silences that hover in the snowy landscapes with echoes of an ancient Baroque painting in the chiaroscuro effects, among the soft drapes that adorn the evocative still lifes.
What stands out in the creative process is precisely the transition to a dream state, where pictorial representation opens up to the romantic transfiguration of reality in the externalization of the evocative world. It's an interpretation of the reality aimed at making us feel the soul of things, their being, present and in suspension as if time had stalled for a moment.
