THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
This beautiful oil on canvas, “Breakfast”, by the artist Sergey Rybak, is meticulously and skillfully painted creating wide contrasts and using a combination of light and dark colors to highlight every single detail. A woman’s face is in the foreground, and the painter caught the perfect moment when something grabbed her attention while she was enjoying her meal, and she turned her head surprised. The potent way this artist approaches the world can be perceived as a symbolic and expressive representation of the human spirit, ever so fickle and impermanent. This painting is a true masterpiece of contemporary art.
