| Graphic, Digital, Art-Direction
This year, for the first time, I tried to work in vector graphics with a "pencil" technique and draw contours with the effects of chalk, pencils, pastels and gouache. Combining different techniques made very Christmas result.
The total working time was about 77 hours and the longest scene was the Nativity scene, because for a long time I could not "put the snow" so that it looked alive.
The postcard "Church" depicts the Church of St. Anthony in Rivne, Ukraine (now the Organ Hall). The spiers are now destroyed as if the church "lost its head" - they are imaginary, I frankly miss the lost architecture.
The Nativity Scene is a script that I always paint in a number of different connections, this man in a fictional land that remotely resembles the Church, Switzerland.
In the "Waiting" postcard, the landscape and windows remotely resemble the interior of Balmoral Castle, Scotland. In a pandemic, most of us will celebrate Christmas at home - overwhelmed with work, waiting for the holidays. We all expect joy - let Christmas come.
