I’m loving this piece by Nadiia Cherkasova. I always enjoy the ‘unfinished’ look where not all parts or painted or executed to the same degree. In this instance, it works perfectly. The essence created in the face combined with the detail of hair, and then empty space in the hair, the way the collar is filled in but the shirt is only gives a suggestion of pattern and colour. I could go on. Cherkasova’s work has a lovely ethereal nature to it, and this piece especially has a nice fragility to it. I wonder why she signs next to an apple? Can only make me (the feminist thinker) remember Eve and the Garden of Eden. Maybe it aids in the fragile nature of this piece. Before long all the easiness and beauty will be gone.
