  • 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.

  • 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.
