An open book. This work by Irina Svistova is very interesting. The technique of painting on fabric enhances the particularity of the small brush strokes that make up the lilac flowers. The artist uses a highlighting technique, taking advantage of the change of colors, dark for the background, light for the most important elements. The setting has a poetic air, a book open on the table, a chair in the background. The attention is undoubtedly taken from the richness of the lilac bloom to which the title of the work is owed. Note how the flower petals are reflected on the table surface. In other parts, it seems as if a gust of wind is dragging them away, limiting the sense of stillness of the whole.
