Larissa Strunowa is a Russian artist born in Yekaterinburg in 1960. She studied painting and scenography in Moscow between 1976 and 1981. She lives and works in Germany since 1995.
With a vigorous brush stroke, Larissa Strunowa paints without taboos or prejudices human bodies working with transparencies and contrasting colors. Using only the basic principles of body representation–the contour and color–the artist evokes the nude without showing it completely and detaches itself from the purely realistic representation.
The works of Larissa Strunowa are all facets of her mind. It is rare to be able to perceive with such clarity the profound thoughts of an artist... Perhaps it is possible because Larissa is a full-fledged, uncensored and unstated soul.
