Silk Sails

Julia Ismambetova’s new and distinctive growing collection depicts imaginary seascapes and sailboats as a metaphor for transcended experiences of a lifetime journey.

The artist’s semi-abstract style avoids running aground of any straightforward literal representation of the philosophical message, but rather invites the viewer to interpret images through the prism of personal memories, self-reflection and visual meditation.

We all sail across a wide open ocean of ever-changing existence, driven by a spirit of exploration and guided by a compass of intuition, towards elusive shores of our dreams — the powerful poetic metaphor, mindfully translated into the universal language of art, evokes a sense of spontaneous reconnection and immediate recognition.
