Description

The painting is made in oil on canvas in modernist style.

The plot of the painting combines the nude genre with the mystical properties of incense, but not turning into excessive religiosity. It is difficult to determine how long the girl lit incense, what effect she expects to receive, perhaps she has already got what she wants or just enjoys its smoldering.

Only the current moment is captured, without a hint of movement, which causes a feeling of peace and tranquility, forcing you to postpone everyday affairs and think about something more.

Scattered around the canvas glimpses of light deserve special attention. Due to their location it is impossible to capture the whole picture at first sight and the longer you are watching the work, the more you will know its mysticism.

Due to the light spots, the feeling of a picture glowing from inside is created. This effect was achieved not by paints, but by special processing of the canvas, which was covered with a special layer of soil and polished with fine-grained emery paper.
