Since her childhood, painting has always been a door to another new world. You know where to go, but you only have a vague idea of what you will find there. This discovery is always an absorbing and exciting experience for Klimova. Watercolors were her first love, but presently she works mostly with oil, because it allows her to create a more intricate volumetric texture.
It is a well-known saying among artists that it is not important what you paint, but rather how you it. Her subjects are diverse: still-lifes, portraits, landscapes, cityscapes. In each of them, she focuses on the idea and unusual composition that conveys the mood and creates a fresh look at the subject. Klimova strives to use vibrant but precise colors to enhance the emotional message of her paintings. It is hard to convey the exhilaration when these elements come together on canvas, and you become a witness of a transformation from a white sheet into a new world.
The great pieces of art are both timeless and contemporary. Klimova’s paintings combine the changing particularities of our modern experiences with the expressions of eternal values, beauty, aspirations and humanity, which she hopes will lift the spirits and delight the eyes of those seeing them for many years to come.
