  • In Sirin and Alkonost (left) we meet two legendary half bird half woman creatures. Sirin sings of the beauties of events to come whilst Alkonost's song is darker and makes the listener forget life itself. In the portrait we see how they are both the same and yet totally different in the way they react to the beautiful moon and the gift of an apple. Despite regularly exhibiting across northern Europe from Russia to the UK, this is her first exhibition close to her home in Yorkshire. Natalia will exhibit some 20 works inspired by the spirits of the lands where she has lived.
  • In "Queen of the Road" (left) we meet a travelling spirit the queen of travellers being helped on her way by an angel – maybe this is a part of Natalia herself as she has come half way round the world to work in Yorkshire.

    2. 2. The gender of the Russian word for Destiny (Sud’ba Судьба) isfemale. And over twenty extraordinary new paintings by theSiberian-born artist Natalia Dolgova give Destiny her humanform. The paintings, exhibited at Gallery 8, St James’s (London)in January, present a sensational series of images of women -many inspired by ancient legends - playing with their fate,shown through symbolic icons and imagery. The human spirit,the female character in particular, and its relationship tonature is the central theme.“The theme of ‘Icons of Faith & Fate’ is the strength of thehuman spirit. Pagan and mythological figures in paintingssuch as the ‘Circus Princess’ and the ‘Queen of the Night’ portraythe darker side to human nature. Others such as ‘Parting’ and‘Swan Song’ show the lighter side, and bring us back to theultimate faith – that there is a destiny or fate for us all.”Natalia Dolgova.Natalia Dolgova was born in Siberia in 1968 and trained as an artist inMagadan and then at the V.I. Mukhina Academy of Art in St. Petersburg. She haslived and worked in Denmark and now lives and works in the picturesque villageof Netherthong in the Pennines of Yorkshire. She paints in both oils andwatercolours to bring to life stories, legends and personalities from the places shelives. She uses a variety of techniques including Batik and the combination ofdifferent pigments to add depth and light to her compositions.

    16. 16. The wife of Bachus Natalia takes inspiration from both the Russian tradition of iconography and from the great renaissance masters. She creates luminous works where the spirit of the central character shines from the canvas whilst the surrounding detail provides a never ending source of interest as you find out more and more about the central character both physically and metaphorically from the detail of their surroundings.
