Raisa Graf


When creativity becomes your conscious choice, each picture or cycle of pictures becomes a message. In my case, the message is the ambivalence of life. In the dark there is light, in the warm cold, near the large shallow. A set of these objects, in a certain way organized, constitutes the message.

I also like to add another change to the picture, another modality – tactility – creating complex textures. Another ambivalence: the process of accumulation takes place in the field of consciousness. I read a lot of books – both artists and art historians, I watch works of artists. There is a plan. But in the process of work come spontaneous decisions, often expressive ones, which you cannot calculate – and I love them very much. And they would not be without all the previous work (in this matter, I agree with Henri Poincaré in his views on the nature of creativity).
