Art critic's comment

The painting of Agafya Belaya is symbolic, she praises the Russian people and the Russian land. The concept of "painting" for the artist is an attempt to reconcile the material and the mystical. To contemplate touching sensuality in everyday things, be it the movement of the hands, the rotation of the head, or the play of shadows - for Agafya Belaya, it is more than a routine. Her observations find their expression on canvas, and the latter, in turn, are rightfully exhibited in world-famous galleries and find themselves in collectors' homes.
