Art: Ballet Dancers by Russian artist Anastasia Vostrezova

While surfing this morning on internet I found this beautiful painting from the talented Russian artist Anastasia Vostrezova. What a Beauty! I guess you've noticed already that I love art and ballet too. Be inspired .......
What Anastasia Vostrezova wrote about herself:
My name is Anastasia. I live in St. Petersburg, in Russia. If you are here, it means that you love ballet and dancing as much as I do. I’ve been developing these themes in my art for more than 12 years. For me ballet and the world behind-the-stage is a miracle, grace and lightness. This is what I try to show in my works.
My works are dedicated to ballet because I adore theater and admire ballet. My endless source of inspirations is what is going on behind the scenes, dressing rooms, rehearsals, and actors. For me ballet and the world behind-the-stage is a miracle, a grace and a lightness. This is what I try to show in my works. Among my paintings there are plots of my imagination and ballets from the repertoire of different theaters.
Still-life is another favorite genre. And once inspired by the abundance of flowers in Summer I create new still-lifes. The antique that I collect is another source of inspiration for me.

Anastasia was born in 1981 in a family of artists. She spent all of her childhood in Moscow and in Pereslavl-Zalesski where her family had a summer house. She graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg 2008.

Her personal reaction:

- I see painting as the art of depicting the world in its beauty, be it a person, landscape or flower. Everything has its own color, its own mood, its own soul.

In the physical world, through the perfection of form, the divine manifests itself in beauty. Beauty reveals and depicts what is eternal. In my paintings, I try to follow this practice in an effort to ensure that in the hearts of viewers, the painting arouses a world of thoughts, emotions – happy or sad, but always poetic and sublime.
Not always and not in every artwork can this result be achieved, but this is the main objective, without which painting becomes meaningless. I spend a lot of time in the ballet theater, and in the auditorium, as well as backstage during performances and rehearsals.

It is impossible not to love this magnificent scenic world. I often talk with the artists, musicians, people of ballet and I am very close to the words of the great Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, addressed towards all ballet dancers and artists alike … and even towards all people: “Let’s dance more, and try to find more beauty in the dance as well as in life.

A true artist – whether he dances or does something else – always strives for beauty. So let us become one with the world of true artists, just as we become one with the world of dancers, because by replacing ugliness with beauty in visual images and intangible areas, we come a little closer to happiness and completeness -
