Colored sailing boats hide in the crimson dusk on the waters of Lake Alster, while night life in the red-light district of the Reeperbahn goes into full swing, pulling in the idle and dissolute as if by magnet.
In Hamburg contemporary architecture blends in effortlessly with 19th-century buildings. Everything functions well and impresses at the same time, and a single visit is sufficient to steal one's soul.
So what is an artist to do with all this? Simply copy what he sees onto paper or canvas? That would be both dull and misleading. A good way to see if a painting has melody is to step back and look from a distance, where you can't make out the detailed subject. And if it does have melody, it will also have meaning and stay in your memory.
24 square meters of canvas that's what's required to convey the emotions of each and every hour you lived through. Images appear like juice from a ripe fruit capable of quenching the thirst of the goblet of creativity, not quite drunk up. To analyze what is happening, by the way, is a thankless task. The last thing is the most difficult don't be a slave to CORRECT impressions.

Several monochrome sculptures from a new series of works Organika by Anna Bokova and Daria Kovaleva are inspired by diversity of organic forms, structures, and textures and are a clear contrast to the riot of colours and wild images.
