Julia Kolomoytseva's beautifully soft, evocative paintings are built up of impressionistic brushstrokes. She has an amazing ability to capture the personality of her figures and her still lifes and landsapes are perfectly composed in harmonious balance.
Having studied art in Lugansk, South East Ukraine, Julia began exhibiting from 2000 in both Ukrainian and International exhibitions. Her accomplished paintings are now held in private collections in Ukraine, Poland, England and France. The inspirational source for her work is the world around her and she says she shares the feelings of subjects of her painting: their emotional state, excitement, joy and sorrow…
Julia's subject matter ranges from figures of all ages to still life although there are a few landscapes. Her range of colour could be described as veering towards a cool palette of mauves, blue and green with occasional splashes of warm orange, reminiscent of Bonnard. She says she is attracted to cold colors and says that many of my paintings are rendered in silver colors: still life, portraits, landscapes. Her paint application is in no way graphic or hard edged. Her nudes are delicate and well observed, whilst her portraits capture the authentic characteristics of her subjects..
In her painting entitled ‘Freelancer’, she explains how she must, "... deeply sympathise with the old musician who has to make a living by playing on a street. He plays on the street and a passing girl makes me think about her future." Of her unique rendition of ‘Jealousy’ she states she must ".... show the suffering of the woman jealous because the man she loves is busy flirting with another woman. The young woman is puffing nervously at the cigarette watching the other woman taking the centre stage. "
She says of her amazing artwork, "My works fill my life with a meaning. They provide me with the inner axis, harmony and equilibrium. It is a break from the day-to-day routine to the other world, my personal world. The world that gives me the euphoria."
