Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves. - - - Bill Hicks
The subject of my artworks is a spiritual journey into subconscious world and exploration of our interconnectedness with each other and with all sentient beings in the Universe.
My images are coming to me in the form of random downloads, that I draw down on a scratch paper, and which later I replicate in color.
My main medium is oil on canvas – I enjoy its thickness and permanence. I also work with Acrylic on paper, it gives me an opportunity to create works of different texture and level of details. I am also working with charcoal and pastel.
I strongly believe in a beautiful and harmonious world and trying to express the feelings of love, compassion, inner peace and appreciation.
Anita Zotkina was born in Odessa, USSR in 1971. She was introduced to art by her parents who were art-lovers, and who provided art supplies and encouraged her to paint at a very young age. She became a full time artist when she was 18. Her paintings were sold at the Odessa City Garden as well as various galleries. At the age of 27 she immigrated to New England, US and where she continued her artistic career. Anita doesn’t focus on one subject or on one medium. Things come in waves for her, and her art expresses stages of her inner world. She never knows what she will believe tomorrow and what will be her next venture.
