Her paintings are so rich with clarity and light that they reflect
in their extraordinary draftsmanship a sense of artistic and spiritual
well-being. One might describe her style as Romantic Realism. Her
meticulous attention to every detail allows us to become intimately
involved in the life of her paintings. In the artist's words: "To
me, these streets, with their worn cobblestones and aged buildings,
evoke a sense of nostalgia and romance with a touch of melancholy.
It is the ideal kind of space in which I would like to live."
Since her childhood in Russia, Liudmila Kondakova has been fascinated
by traditional art, by a sense of spirituality that transcends common
existence. Her painting technique is that employed by medieval egg-tempera
painters. Her palette influenced by the icon painters of Byzantium
and later, Russia, is both vibrant and beautiful, with colors that
blend in a subtle, poetic balance. Born in Russia in 1956, Liudmila
Kondakova immigrated to the United States in 1991. A graduate of
the Grabar Center in Moscow, she also attended Russia's School of
Sacred Arts, the Moscow Pedagogical Institute and the Moscow Art
Institute. Kondakova connects her highly trained background to her
artistic expression this way: 'In my art, the essence and beauty
has always rested in the details.
