The job of an artist is to engage the viewer in obsessions and this series explores this ambition. “Katya and her Sisters” examines emotions using women’s faces as the medium. Do they attract you? Bother you? Worry, amuse or disturb you? Their faces and postures, colors and composition, are intended to stimulate and evoke emotions in you. The series was started July, 2010. There are currently 22 canvases, painted in oils, ranging in size from 16 X 20 inches to 24 X 30 inches.
Please enjoy my sisters, as we enjoy looking into your eyes.
