Artist based in Belgium Anastasia Trousova finds spectacular ways to showcase the beauty of the European landscape. Her creative practice merges decadent texture with bold color palettes to create lavish depictions of flowering hills, dense forests and peaceful rivers.
A former shoe designer in China, Trusova took up painting when she moved to Belgium and needed a new creative outlet. Through experimentation, she has developed her own unique style based on prismatic hues and thick impastos. “For me, texture is an integral part of the image. I use it to show volume and space and spice up the image,” Trusova told My Modern Met. “Plus, since acrylic doesn’t yellow in the sun, I can use it to play with light and shadows [on the canvas].”
The deep rivets in the dried paint create a feeling of energy on the canvas. On every square inch of Trusova’s compositions, the viewer can find interesting grooves and patterns that add to the sense of fullness in her compositions. “I want the image to look interesting in any light, so I paint over textures with fine lines of detail, like a decorative pattern or lines in the grass,” she adds. . As a result, these exquisite renditions look like portals to spectacular dreamscapes.
