Relict Forest in Samur 'Winter Rhaphsody' . 2016. Oil on Canvas. 94 x 88 cm
Project ‘Samur Relict Forest’
This is a unique, one of a kind original oil painting done on canvas stretched on a wooden frame.
The artwork was inspired by nature in my homeland Dagestan (Caucasus, Russia) during the wintertime.
Samur forest is one the most interesting places in Dagestan, jungles and relict trees....
This is the beautiful charm of the World with rich natural colours that I want to show everyone.
My dream and words to the World are in every part of this painting.
These places have repeatedly been the focus of attention for buildings in the protected area.
The artist's civic position was most vividly demonstrated in his might trying to preserve the Samur forest in its original form.
‘Samur Relict Forest’ project presented at the XII International Festival ‘Traditions and Modernity’ in the Central Manege (Russia, Moscow) where Karakhan Seferbekov received a professional award, the Vera (Faith) statuette, in the category ‘Responsibility in Conversation with Society’ was created in 2016 and dedicated to this problem of green forests.
Winter Trees in Samur relict forest is a very dynamic artwork, full of energy, filled with the breath of Nature itself.
The proud and majestic trees are covered with heavy, deep and piercing snow, the colour of the sun's sparkling light.
'I wanted to compare and convey my feelings: there can be some fear of the inevitability of growing up, aging, a decline in strength, but at the same time, the expectation of something bright and infinitely beautiful, the flourishing of my soul and mind at the peak of emotion. Awareness of the meaning of life itself. Strong and powerful, like trees that have giggled gigantic roots into the earth. But the older they become, the higher they rise to the blue sky, the more knowledge they acquire - the closer it is to the completion of its circle of life. I want to show this cyclicality and inevitability through joy, through beauty and its embodiment in nature.'
The artwork is included in the Art-catalog 'Light and Colour' by Karakhan Seferbekov
