It is difficult to say that it is an inspiration to me. Much. In the soul is a process, incomprehensible at first for itself, and gradually he acquires an image that I and torture tayus expressed in tapestry.
The first direct sensation from work Davidova-in their amazing emotional, temperamental, picturesque. Her tapestries seem to be "written" broad brush of fresh. They are stored directly display the real-world richness of forms, fresh paint and at the same time - decorative, monumental summarized. Most of its work are dealt with Contra-tnom, unexpected masses of color comparison, composite plans, leaving a feeling of drama-tion, internal conflict. In the work-max Davydova like fighting two early, two of the artist - a painter, with a desire to show the world in all its living beauty, whether it's still-life, landscape or a person and an artist-tapestry-we start demanding other imagery, conventional languages, ca. Connecting more precisely fused into one The image-proximately structure in the flesh of a tapestry, these qual-Twa talent Davydova give often unexpected in kind, but always interesting results.
