Yulia Zaretskaya

The artist was born in 1965 in Leningrad. From her early childhood she showed a gift in drawing. Her studying was always easy: after graduating from the Art School at the Academy of Fine Arts, she decided to continue education at the Graphic Department of the Academy (studio of Vladimir Vetrogonsky). The choice was well considered: the Graphic Department, unlike the Department of Easel Painting, seemed more artistic and free-spirited. There she got into lithography , a spectacular technique that allows creating both subtle graphic and gray-scale images. In 1989 she received her Diploma and joined the Union of Artists.

Julia Zaretskaya's artistic tastes changed with time: first she was fascinated by the works of artists from "Mir Iskusstva"; then she liked graphic works by Ostroumova-Lebedeva and watercolors by Benoit, and later the priorities became more sophisticated. Now, her main criterion for an art work quality is its fullness and completeness of expression, and absence of a self-contained story and literariness. The genre of landscape as no other allows her to reveal the image without any verbal interpretations. Perhaps that is why her works are filled with abstract and pensive melancholy and deep personal mood.
