MIXED MEDIA collages

In collages Nataly thinks in a structured way, that’s why the inclusion in the pictorial environment of some elements of colored paper, fabric or even magazine clippings makes it possible to add expressiveness and a dramatic or, conversely, a festive «materiality». As it is largely believed, the neo-expressionists brought back to art the imagery, the figurativeness, the lively and emotional style, and the bright and saturated colors. Contemporary neo-expressionism uses not only variations of lines and shapes as means of expressiveness but also variations of color and texture, that is, everything that exists in an image. The image may also include some abstractionist fragments, both as formal aesthetic component and as a means to reveal the image.

The most dramatic in their expressiveness are the Night Desert collages – a mysterious phantasmagoria, both frightening and alluring. At the same time the Immigrants series is a real feast, a fulfillment of a dream. There is humor and kind irony in these images. They are filled with children’s joy and optimism. May be the subsequent journey in the new place will proof difficult, but the memories of this joy will give strength and hope that everything would eventually work out.

In David and Absalom, the biblical power is combined with modern language. Through the images of their graves, the dramatic relations between father and son are expressively conveyed. The entire triptych is built in such a way that the drama increases gradually as the forms become bigger. While the Ancient Mystery looks ornamental and symbolic like cuneiform letters, the last work conveys a personal emotional experience, while retaining the power of the archetype.
