Nelya Akimova

Siberia is my homeland. Who was there in the winter, never forgets the vastness and purity of the snowy expanses. And, as a contrast, concrete structures rise among snow.This magic remains with you for the rest of your life. I want to convey it in my canvases.

"You know, you think of Siberia, and it's more a construct of the mind than it is a place on the map, but it is very much a place on the map. It's just not a specific place. No place is called -officially called Siberia. There's no state called Siberia. But it has always existed as this mythical place, and I've always been fascinated with places that are both mythical and real, that you can go to but also have this mythic component." - Ian Frazier

My grandmother was an Altai healer. My father told me something from his childhood; when he was a little boy there were always other children in their house who my grandmother treated for stuttering. And I feel a certain energy that leads me. I think this is the inheritance of my grandmother, transmitted through the love of my father. I dedicated one of my paintings to her.

Having received the education as a children's doctor, I pulled out a happy life ticket and I began to work for an international pharmaceutical company. Sales, conferences, business trips, reports, business plans, fails and successes,stability and confidence in the future; it has been this way for 20 years. A few years ago, my inner voice firmly and insistently demanded a step into a new life. It was fearful. I resisted. I strongly relied on stability. However, the universe inexorably pushed me. At first, timidly, then considerably, I began to dive into myself, to hear my inner voice, which I had run away from for years but as soon as I trusted myself, I felt an angel on my shoulder and everything began to take shape in one amazing puzzle. I left my job, moved to the Czech Republic and became enthralled with my passion for painting.

When creating my work, I use my own technique that was born from my desire to combine the technicality and rudeness of modern concrete surfaces with the purity of Siberian nature. The beauty of the undressed concrete covered with snow is revealed on every one of my canvases; each work has its own history, soul, emotion and idea that is slowly revealed to viewer.  Oftentimes, the viewer sees more than what I depict; new faces, new stories appear, making them feel like the author of the canvas, recognizing themselves in each painting.
