Irina paints on old wood boards, closet and wardrobe doors, metal pieces or simply on rocks she finds. Irina’s paintings remind of Russian Orthodox icons, Avant-garde 1910-1920 and Russian folk art. She paints portraits of Russian writers, happy couples, books, subjects and objects from villages and dacha life. Irina says: The objects I paint on are just means of expression but their past affects my paintings. I find them in the garbage ...or they find me.
