Dimensions variabel
4x Diameter 100 cm

1965 Moscow / Lives in Berlin

„...It is better then to see the paintings as landscapes of the mind, projections and open territories of imaginary inscription. That Serebriakova reflects upon this is  beyond doubt, since she stated earlier “ Art is a sort of ritual that incessantly defines emptiness. With art, we can try to express that which cannot be expressed in words”. 
Hence Serebriakova’s use of materials and a subdued grey palette become an explicit extension of that which both heightens and exposes that emptiness.The paintings create a subject while a sense of their aesthetic emptiness is retained...“ 
(Mark Gisbourne, “At the borderlands of memory and desire”, 2008)
