Ruta Korshunova is a painter living near Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.
Amid the turmoil and uncertainty of life in Ukraine during the border conflict with the Russian Federation, Korshunova finds the presence of mind to paint quiet, contemplative still life; bringing to her commonplace objects a sense of timelessness.
Korshunova was at one point working as a designer and digital artist, but an illness that kept her in bed for long periods sent her back to her early love of painting.
In addition to her still life subjects, Korshunova also does occasional portraits, including the one above, second from bottom, of her Husband, painter Innokenty Korshunov, who I will feature in a subsequent post.
According to her website, Ruta Korshunova can be contacted by email for sales of her work, commissions and gallery inquires from countries outside the Ukraine.
