Georgian artist Tamar Melikishvili has settled in among taxidermy birds presented in a barn. In this calm surroundings, she is completely concentrated on her work. She paints parallel on various oil paintings and shows various facets of reduction. In her working process, she lets herself be carried away by a strongly gestural expression, until she decides to observe closely. By bringing together both forms of expression (the gestural and the precise study), the artist creates authentic images in which the DIGNITY of the motif is shown.
