Yuri Tayshete, Lemon Tea and Cookie - Original Painting
Lemon Tea and Cookie
12 x 12 inches
Oil on linen canvas
"My ultimate goal is in finding harmony in the universe by looking at everyday things that affirm each other. I want to portray this view of the world through my still-life paintings. My paintings also bring out the dialog between light and shadow; inorganic and organic; and natural and synthetic.
I employ alla prima techniques to emphasize the ephemerality of my painting. This renders the freshest and cleanest colors, which give the paintings a vivid and playful atmosphere. In addition to the alla prima technique, painting primarily with a large brush provides bold and dynamic forms to my paintings."
