Originals by Mara Viksnins

Artist Statement

Mara Viksnins is ultimately obsessed with the figure! "No matter how I start a painting, whether it be with just random brush strokes and colors or a more realistic intent, a figure appears. I love to portray the female figure, sometimes in a mystical setting, sometimes as a nurturer or mother nature or just an ordinary human being"
