Light And Shade 1980 – 1981
" The feeling of fragility and ephemeral nature of beauty in this world does not leave us when viewing the paintings of the cycle "Light and Shade". The still-lives really look as if weaved from gliding light and transparent shade, clinging to subtlest color shades in which the most delicate of moods shine through."
From the monograph of the art critic Gregory Ostrovsky
