Succulence and beauty in paintings can be considered as compliments to the world, while neutrality comes at a high price. This neutrality is not attained when an artist discovers through trial and error the best techniques and squeezes the last juices out of them, becomes dry, objective and predictable, but when merging with time. In this sense, every artwork, melody or poem is a form of altering time, which, like the very matter of life, is neutral.
Olga Vishnevetskaya’s paintings do not flirt, neither aim to be tempting nor interesting, rather they intend to direct the viewer towards the artwork's intrinsic reality. One can notice the author’s clear inclination towards metaphorics, which is drawn from everywhere, both left and right: from archaics, from the dictionary, professional language, from fragments of phrases, art history and things alike. In terms of genre, it is pastoral abstraction, devoid of plot and perspective, there are no bright colors or expressive brushstrokes, the rivers do not overflow their banks, leaving no fluffy foam onto wet sand. These paintings are monotonously neutral, like desert vistas.
