This abstract oil painting from the collection On the verge of waking up is in a style the artist calls “evocative abstract”. A sense of quiet clarity is built by a rhythmic composition featuring mark making and a finessed colour palette – in combination with charcoal and oil sticks. Paint layering gives subtle structure and textures to this work. Impasto and sand give extra plasticity and dimension. There is a transparency, usually associated with aquarel, allowing Eremeeva to exploit subtly nuanced and balanced components and so create an alluring visual impression. As with all her works, the title incites the viewer’s curiosity and encourages a deeper examination of the piece.
“In this collection, I strive to transform ideas into emotion, expressed by texture and rhythm … I want the painting to evoke feelings, memories and images … stimulating an emotive recall to the conscious mind.” You are invited to explore and discover your own meaning.
