Lyric Diary* What would our mankind have been without fowers? If fowers had not existed Would our character, our moral, our ability for the beauty and happiness be the same? Just imagine for a second that our planet does not know fowers Te whole world of elaborate sensitivity would have slept forever at the bottom of our hearts An endless universe of colours and shades would have revealed its beauty only in part Miraculous harmony of light would have remained unknown to us When we are in love, memories about the fowers, that we have once seen and inhaled, fow back to us and feel up our consciousness and sensitivity with familiar pleasures Happiness without fowers would have been totally shapeless, like a horizon of the sea or the sky Tere is no need to add any other comment to this ode to fowers, to this miracle of nature, written by the subtle dreamer Maurice Maeterlinck. However, they can be easily illustrated with delicate picturesque essays by Lviv artist Nina Reznichenko, whose delicate fowers of dreams, fowers of hints and fowers of women allure us with moments of the world in its perfection. When you look at subtle reveries of the images created by Nina Reznichenko, you anticipate the happiness that flls up the world around you and becomes apparent in every moment, if we allow ourselves to be happy. Sounds of Ninas painting take us back to those illuminated moments, when we admired tiny and tender petals before we put a fower into a vase and enjoyed the moment of looking at this creation, or when we gave fowers to our beloved to make them smile... Nina has been drawing fowers her whole life. It takes her quite long to settle her mind and to get concentrated, but she works very fast, as if all in one breath. She never paints from life, but during the breaks between drawing sessions she exploits all available aesthetic of the world, like nature, literature, arts, music, to get saturated with positive feel- ings and impressions. Te moment, when she takes a brush in her hand is not a prologue, but a culmination; it is the moment, when emotions get materialised. Her drawing is an impulse, when with a help of clearly sensed colours of a blurred background, a few texture spots, and efective contrasting accents the artist creates a mood, which can be mel- ancholic, loudly joyful, mysteriously half-worded, or overtly sensitive. And it does not matter, whether it appears in the image of a woman or a fower, as they mean the same for thousands of years. Tese are women and fowers, entrusted by nature to become symbols of the beauty of earthly life. From that time on Linger a bit longer. You are so nice! has become the very mission and the essence of the art. Nina Reznichenkos painting is the territory, where moments of beauty are ceased in its state of perfection, the beauty, which has been read between the lines of classical poetry, eaves- dropped in classical music, or seen in dreams Welcome to enjoyment.
