The theme of interaction with the force of nature is among frequently surfacing motives in the creative practice of Valeria Trubina. Similarly to romantic artists, Trubina searches for an emotional connection with nature, making it a medium for conveying a psychological state, a deep existential experience. Trubina’s paintings have kept the freedom and expressivity of the “new wave,” with wise, contemplative maturity added. Divination on the Storm Cloud is a painting full of anxious premonition and restless expectation, an attempt to predict a vague future; this is probably the most accurate description of current state of the society and the individual in the turbulent times of change.
