An amazing ballet world is depicted in the painting created by Sergei Bakin. The artist shows the hidden world of the backstage, which is inaccessible to the eye of a person.
The artist captured the minutes of the ballerina’s rest, and not the moment of stage triumph and brilliance. Her image is full of natural beauty and elegance. The painting is deeply symbolic and generalized. The artist avoids depicting face, he focuses the viewer’s attention on the model’s silhouette.
To create a single image, the artist mixes pastels and oil painting. The artist’s style is richness of forms and refined technique, elasticity of lines, all-pervading light in a pastel texture and separate strokes which knit the painting into art.
