For Anastasia Fedorova, creating art means being present in the moment. My perception of this world is made through a direct experience of the immediate present. My goal is to return to the ultimate source, nature, and ourselves. Anastasia Fedorova believes that nature and natural forms are the pathways to contemplation and creation. All my paintings start from nature, where I try to transport the viewer to a better, sometimes idealized world. I see nature as a teacher who makes me investigate the environment’s shape, color, and ephemeral movements. By using a vibrant, colorful palette and thick, loaded brushstrokes, I emphasize the dynamism and movement in nature. I believe that beauty helps to educate our souls. On the other hand, horror and chaos destroy our spirit and prevent us from growing and developing. Therefore, the essential purpose of art is to make people feel better and help them become better versions of themselves.
