Once the famous Italian actor and singer Adriano Celentano saw “Poet and Muse” by Belarusian Lyudmila Korneyeva, which was displayed in Milan’s municipal gallery, he decided to buy the picture.
Lyudmila did not ask herself why the prominent Italian had chosen her painting. When I asked her what she thought about the intention of the famous buyer she joked:
— It must be the law of gravitation.
I would not call it a joke, as the expressive and boisterous nature of the Belarusian artist is close to the bright and emotional style of the Italian actor. I believe it was this commonness that did not allow Celentano to miss the painting. Korneyeva’s expression won her the first prize of the elite contest “Eros and Thanatos” of the Minsk gallery “Ars Longa”.
Lyudmila has taken part in numerous exhibitions that took place not only in Belarus, but also in Moscow, Stein, Kenisbach, Milan and Vienna. This year Lydmila will have her first personal exhibition in Vienna, Austria.
She is an abstractionist, and the play of the subconscious is very complex and unpredictable. Her works are somewhere in the realm of poetic mythology of spiritual life, plastic and colorful poetry of unconscious spheres. They are as phantasmagoric as colorful and inexplicable dreams, original and audacious both in instruments and technique.
When asked how she would estimate the key quality of her creativity, Lyudmila answers:
— This is a feeling of creative freedom.
