To experiment with colour, convey emotions and mood through the works – this is what a young Transcarpathian artist, the participant in “Silver Easel” Anhelina Hafynets strives for. The girl often creates still lifes and presents her works to us.

“Still life, in my opinion, is a special genre that allows you to work in different colours and styles,” Anhelina says. “It is important for me to transfer the mood through a still life. I try to select objects in such a way that they can tune the viewers to some or other emotions at the associative level. For example, the evening still life is a romantic state that is conveyed with help of flowers, fruits and wine. Then colours of separate objects serve only as a pretext for a given mood harmony.”

The artist experiments with the forms, colours and even with the location of a still life. The main thing in the work, according to Anhelina, is harmony.

“I have monochrome works, but I often experiment with a combination of different contrasting colours. I like to use texture – then the work turns out to be more intense and emotional,” the artist says.

On 7 August 2018, one of the works of Anhelina Hafynets was presented at the exhibition “Ukrainian Still Life” at the Kyiv “Karas Gallery”.

“I had a rest in the mountains and painted what surrounded me. I created such a lovely morning still life on the background of the mountains. I wanted to convey all the lightness of the morning, its freshness, and enjoyment of the moment of drinking tea,” Anhelina says.
