"The exhibition TIMELAPSE consists of several thematically close work series Habitat, D*ART*S, and Cubes. The works are the sphere of the artist's etherial habitat. Objects in my field of vision turn into special mysterious symbols, absorb vital energy, get colour saturation and create their own world in my works. Watercolor technique requires a special inner inspired condition. The emotions experienced in their extreme form are a source of creative energy. Their final drop triggers the creation of a new work. Watercolor is responsive; its unpredictable fluidity creates unique shades and textures. A living vibration develops. The whole process of work in this technique is constant artist-or-watercolor guidance balancing. Here, the main thing is to be able to pass along a fine line without shifting aside. It is also important to find a measure of concentration and ease. I look at objects with amazement, I see the reflections of something mysterious, of something that is not available to me... Visual incarnations of objects are masks covering their nature, which depends on the observer, being the observer's reflection. The mask that covers the mask of life, in fact, shows its essence, gives a feeling of freedom, a chance to safely open its inner universe. This space combines the depth of sensations and emotions with the watercolors' lightness and transparency..." – Lyubov Abramova.
