Saint Paraskeva in the Cauldron

Danylo Movchan

Paper, watercolor, gilding, wooden frame, glass

35 x 30 cm





Due to her name, the martyr Paraskeva has always been associated in Christian art with Good Friday and the Passion of Jesus. One type of ancient torture is presented here in a modern, laconic way with elements of geometrization. At the same time, thanks to the colour and technique, it retains the emotional tension appropriate for the moment. The author's perception of the tortured young body of the martyr is especially striking. (ST)
