Equally fascinating are the painstakingly crafted pieces by Katerina who pays mind-boggling attention to detail.”

Q & A with Kate Toledo
1. When did you first start painting? And what was your first medium?
I first started painting in my early 20’s and my first medium in paint was probably gauche.
2. Did it take you a long time to master your art?
Mastering ones art is a long and winding road. I have been working in different creative mediums all my adult life from Italian plate painting, photography, sculpture and painting, tapestry, sewing, spinning, knitting, patchwork…the list goes on.
3. What medium do you work with today?
When painting Acrylic paints are my favorite at the moment.
4. Do you have colours you dislike, that you find put you off a painting?
I love all the colours. It is more the combination of colours and their tones, chosen by the artist that can ‘put me off’ a painting.
5. What are your compositions based on or What inspires you the most?
My compositions at the moment are based on images from the Middle East, where I have been living for the past 5 years. Everything around me inspires me.
6. Who are your favourite artists and why?
Matisse is my absolute favorite artist, I love his colours and heavily pattered paintings. Gauguin for his colours and subject matter. Iranian Khosrow Hassanzadeh and the Egyptian Chant Avedissian, both of these artists use lots of colour and interesting backgrounds, and of course the observation of humans.
7. How long does it take for you to complete a painting?
It depends on the size of the canvas. The 120 x 150 paintings can take a month or more, they are often heavily detailed and this can be time consuming.
8. What do you think is the ideal place for your art? Is it a home, office, hotel, any other and why?
The ideal place for my art is any wall that people look at. My aim is that whoever looks at one of my paintings will feel delight and joy. They are about colour and pattern.

About Katerina Smoldyreva
Katerina is a Russian artist who has been a resident in Dubai for over 10 years. Her vocation is figurative sculpture and the medium of her choice is ceramic clay. She has been always fascinated about the infinite creative opportunities the clay offers and the challenges it presents.
Katerina’s works are always narrative, trying to tell an intimate story or to answer questions about our identities in relation to history and global cultural differences.
Her current exhibition Echoes of Old Persia is a series of ceramic sculptures, vases and "bas-reliefs", inspired by 15-16 centuries Persian miniatures, in which the artist has long been interested. It opens a window into the magnificence of Persian courts, legends of national epic Shahnameh, poetry of Hafez, Rumi, Saadi.
The flat, two-dimensional images of old manuscripts rise from the pages and tell stories, filled with poetry, music and humour, still as relevant today as they were then, for art is not limited by time and cultures.
