Nina Petrovna Valetova

Fantasy and Visionary Art

The theme of fantasy and visionary art has been very well presented in the works. The works also reveal several tales but the viewers must put their heads to good use because she does not present the whole tale, most works need to be deciphered, only smart viewers would be able to do so. Her works are very enigmatic, at times the viewers feel that the works are frozen in time, the next second they feel that the same works are brimming with life. Nevertheless Nina Valetova’s art requires more precise than surrealism definitions. There is more mystical and metaphysical attributes in her works than in the world view of surrealism which was seen as a collective art-psychology by its theorist A. Breton. At the same time he proclaimed “brilliant revenge of imagination as a true Philosopher’s Stone” and this is meaningful to us. Perhaps what we need is a definition like “fantastic realism” or a more exact term “metaphysic realism” (this definition was invented by Daniil Andreyev and is now cultivated by such master of Russian esoteric literature as Y. Mamleyev).

Besides, it is obvious that in our case it is not an unbridled emancipation of particularly private sub consciousness with its psychoses and complexes (which can be explained in Freud’s words) and what is typical for ordinary surrealism, but it is the exit of Unconsciousness (in its high Jung’s meaning) through the gates of imagination using archetypes towards something real and ontologically genuine which is in some way objective essences of a multilateral thin world.The intriguing dual nature of her works continues with the dichotomy of visual movement that pervades each canvas. The work seem at once frenetic and active, yet frozen and almost incomprehensibly calm. Valetova experiments with dimension and composition, leading to amazing results: paradoxical works of intended absurdity. In doing so, she produces works not only of stunning beauty and philosophical depth, but which comments on the unpredictability and irrationality of contemporary society. As unending wars are waged and beloved family members die, life continues on and as her paintings so poignantly articulate, when one thing stops another keeps going.Born in South Ural, Russia, Valetova finds continual inspiration in her personal history and in the cultural heritage of her familial lineage.
