In her painting series Maria Serebriakova explores the processes within the working consciousness. The artist travels along the landscapes of her mind and records her travel memories on canvas. Her images-phantoms are circles appearing as if suns or constellations, rhythmic lines that arc across the surface of some paintings, architectural elements of buildings, variable horizon line, silent spaces filled with air. The predominating colour of her works is grey in tone, meditative, known as a borderland or mediation between black and white. However, its tonality in each case in Serebriakova paintings is verifiably different. What does the artist find while meditating at the wasteland, at the borderland of Night and Day, Space and Time?
