Powerful iconic face - the scale and use of colour move it away
from the 17th Century to the 21st century.

(Spanish to English translation:
! That formidable record of education and art of a great woman who has forged a place among the great painters of the past and present, of a work of art that is, to my mind, a hyper-edge as surrealism and is something that overcoming reality. Congratulations!)

Hi Arina, You have a unique style and philosophy.
Very impressive portraiture.
My best compliments. Keep up the creativity.
All the best.
Lira Kay, Artist
What a great series! Makes you think about life.
Very interesting interpretation of Trinity in us.
Never thought of our soul that way.
You came up with your own lived through concept. I admire your strength and honesty.
Not many artists at all this days have a right to say they paint what's inside, what's theirs.
Not only you lived through darkest and lightest moments of your life, but you managed to become Victorious.
Constantin Severin, Artist
You are one of the best contemporary artists
and I'm happy we are together in Spring projection,
Marseille Art Gallery...

Посмотрел Aнгелов (Trinity).
Обезоруживает правда. Человеческая правда. Без прикрас.
Ведь все мы привыкли прятатьсяч за чем угодно,
лишь бы не обнажить души, своей истинности.
Ты не боишься.
Это сильно, но и тревожно.
Star - spread the glory in the world!..
Gabriele Montagano, Artist

Kate Faust, Artist
My name is Kate and I am exhibiting in the same show as you
at the Pen and Brush Gallery in NYC.
I was on a shoot in India and wasn't able to make it to the gallery until yesterday but I just wanted to let you know
how wonderful I thought your paintings are.
The contrast between the black and white and color
scheme is just awesome.
As soon as you walk into the gallery your eye just goes directly to your paintings. Anyway, I just wanted to wish you the best and congratulate you on First Prize!!!! You definitely earned it!!!
Stunning work, so graceful.
It's refreshing to find an artist with such raw talent.
Thank you for sharing your work with the world.

Can I just say how thrilled I was to see your website and how your art has flourished – it’s proof of your determination, talent and desire to succeed…I’m extremely proud of what you have achieved so far.
I must admit I do like “Who is More Fragile-You or Your Shadow?”.
I realise how much of a departure this is from your usual practice.
WELL DONE…but sure you persist!!...OK – I know you will!!
