PRLog - Feb. 22, 2011 - BERKELEY, Calif. -- In the two remarkable series presented, artist Maria Zaikina demonstrates a wide range of both skill and curiosity. Her investigations into various visual experiences show an enthusiasm and ability to bring viewers into her world.
In these very different yet parallel portfolios, Zaikina examines the subjects with an acute intensity. In turn, the viewer becomes observer of the moods and expressions of both people and landscape. Repetition serves to enhance the experience, each piece adding to the one before. Coming back to them, repeating the experience, allows us to delve into the image, to be moved by a simple landscape and to empathize with someone who is remembering, painfully, something joyful.
