The collection of square-shaped silk scarves “Shifter’s palimpsest” consists of silk prints 138X138 sm and is a continuation of the previous graphic "Players" series in which each plot was the author's interpretation of a certain kind of games.
”One warm summer evening in the garden gazebo company amused cooking a dinner over a campfire and playing board games. The light of the full moon, fire and small lamps snatched from the darkness and changed emotions with incredible speed. During the evening 4 types of games were played, but the passion did not cease. So I visualized the first images. After the first painting (Poker) I decided to research the nature of gaming and gambling, as well as to come up with a format of paintings. Rhythm, color and graphic techniques varied from painting to painting and did not depend on the rules of any game. I allowed myself to play with all of this, because I am not fond of any one type of game,” - Natalia comments. Her illustrations and graphics capture and embarrass, sometimes it looks scary, but always keeps the attention of the audience by a powerful magnet of intrigue and mastery. Transformation of reality with the help of a vivid imagination and a good sense of humor is embodied in exquisite silk scarves this time.
