Posts Tagged ‘recycled wood art’

olga oreshyna artGrowing up and graduating in Russia, only after moving to Canada I found an ability to revitalize my artistic dreams.
During the constant search to put my creative energy to some purpose, I traveled extensively across the North America and Europe. Overwhelmed by dramatic views of nature – and simplicity and elegance of its forms – I strive to reflect its beauty in my art works.
My art phase began when I discovered a true passion for painting on wood. In my belief, wood retains the spirit of the living tree and I just try to honour it.

It’s strong, light and flexible. You can shape it, carve it, colour it. Design of each art piece is blending form and aesthetic. Form is most important, and wood species and richness of grain patterns are chosen to enhance it. Starting with a mental image of the shape and color and rough sketch, the magic begins.

 Every piece of wood in my sculptures has been shaped and fitted to a specifically designated position – countless bits of wood assembled into enigmatic, loosely geometric compositions. Creative process involves building up layers of paint then tearing them down. The hidden layers are revealed through sanding or scrubbing. It’s so similar to our life, what we don’t see still matters. We all have layers that are not visible and I find discovering the depth of these layers the most interesting in people and paintings.

Much of my inspiration comes from the wood itself. Collecting wood simply for its natural beauty is the start of many of my works. Using wood that have been recycled gives me the most pleasure. I appreciate the ability to transform a row resource into a timeless piece of art.

For many of us, nature is an endless source of rejuvenation. A place of peace we can escape to when the reality of the modern world get to be too overwhelming. A place that recharges us, alights our senses, ignites our imagination and gives us the energy to dive back in. Why wouldn’t you try and emulate some of that majesty and wonder in your own home? In the latest projects I tried to bring some of the power and beauty of nature into the house:

The ability to bring nature into your home has been an ambition that humans have strived for over the centuries. We love the natural and organic appeal of elements that makes us feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed into a space.

From the bark of a tree to the soft feel of grass underfoot to the sturdiness of a rock wall, nature is full of textures, and those textures can be explored in your home. Give your senses something to grab a hold to so you can revisit nature’s textures in your home anytime you’d like.

The more we get involved with technology, the more people want to surround themselves with the textures, colors and patterns of nature.

Nature Inspired Interior Design

My artwork is influenced and inspired by the magnificence and splendor of the natural environment. I seek to stimulate my  emotions through the passion I feel when I am immersed in nature; whether by the beauty of a single flower, or by a panoramic wild coastline scene. I am intrigued by the fleeting balance between strength and fragility in nature and I seek to create feelings of tranquility and balance in my works.

Wabi-sabi is a Japanese philosophy that includes the acceptance and appreciation of simplicity, the ordinary, and the imperfect and it can be described as finding beauty in things that are impermanent and incomplete. Wabi-Sabi is an aesthetic, a state of mind, a mix of emotions, and a way of perceiving life . . . the acceptance of the cycles of change, including life and death.

“Contemplation”. Wabi Sabi Art.

Wabi-sabi concept remind me that we are all transient beings on this planet, that our bodies, as well as the material world around us, are in the process of returning to dust. Through Wabi-sabi, I learn to embrace the beauty of the old and the mystical, where the presence of cracks and scratches are considered to be symbolic of the passing of time, weather…

Forgotten Letters. Wabi Sabi Art

I love it, it so perfectly fits how I like to work and create. I have always been drawn to weathered objects that have character, that symbolise a sense of timelessness and history, each with their own story and season. I find this practice to be a beautiful, meditative one that brings me great calm and peace.
