More about this artwork

The painting captures a pensive ballerina seated on a red surface, her body slightly turned to the left. Her attire, a white dress with ruffled sleeves and a billowing skirt, contrasts starkly against the dark, abstract background featuring smeared strokes of red, black, and hints of other dark shades. The light dramatically highlights her gentle expression and the subtle, contemplative gaze of her large eyes. Her brown hair, softly curled, cascades around her shoulders, enhancing the romantic and somewhat melancholic air of the portrait. The overall mood is both intimate and introspective, as if the ballerina is lost in thought amid the solitude.

Serghei Ghetiu, a Moldovan-born artist who now lives in Klaipėda, Lithuania, has a place of honour in our gallery among the most popular realists.

Although the artist himself says that he does not want to stick to one genre, he is interested in capturing different things on canvas, and lately his work has been dominated by portraits, and most of the time we see women and dancers. Through their poses, facial expressions and looks, the author tries to convey an emotional state, a feeling, what is going on inside a person. In Serghei Ghetiu's work, realism does not mean a cold, mechanical replication of reality at all - on the contrary, it is perfectly suited for capturing the slightest flicker of a face, the smallest nuance. Although the author loves details, he does not play with them or overload his paintings. You will notice that the details are usually mostly in the human face, in the dramatically falling folds of the garment, while for the background, the artist chooses a more expressive, looser technique - this combination not only helps to convey the mood even better, but also does not tire the eye, and helps to bring out the highlights.

This combination of realistic and free painting makes Serghei Ghetiu's work look great in both contemporary and classical interiors.
