Dnerp Returns, is part of a series of paintings devoted to a building influenced by a circus arena situated in the city of Dnipropetrovsk, also called Dnepr, by local inhabitants. Dnepr is located on the Dnieper River in East-Central Ukraine. Dnipropetrovsk has been the major center of the steel industry from the beginning of the 20th century until the present. It has also dominated in the machine-building and aero-spacebuilding industry since the 1950s. Through researching about the city of Dpner and the circus arena, I felt inspired to create my own interpretation of the building- a spaceship influence, and making it part of a new frontier.
Dnepr Returns is a painting commission which was to create a replica taken from Dnepr (soft focus) painting I did in 2010. Again this time, I softened the building a bit and changed to monochromatic green-grey and soft white tones...seen as a memory of Dnepr!
