The following four artists of IRIDA will submit their works for the Exhibition:
Klara Golitsyna, “Self portrait in blue dress”. Klara says “The picture should create itself. The author`s participation is minimal. The result of the game is unpredictable. This is my stimulus and interest. I believe the aurhor`s philosophic outlook on modernity realizes itself in his or her wish to opt out in the process of ceativity.

Svetlana Nekrasova, “Self portrait”, is of the opinion that an abstract form is the best way to express her feelings. Abstraction helps the author to avoid a pressure of a genre on the image and makes it possible to see the invisible through the visible.

Natalia Bazhenova, “Self portrait”, combines realism with expression of romanticism . It helps her to express personal image as a reflection of impulsiveness of her own character.

Maria Esmont, “Self portrait at a country side”. Contre-ajour of a portrait underlines the autor`s inner concentration, freedom from everyday problems. “Self portrait after the fashion of the sixties”
is a return to the beginning of the artist`s creative work. It is also a kind of experiment with a form of expression of a self-will of the youth and audacity of approach to herself.

A detailed report of the events that had taken place in Portland, Oregon, was published on the cover page of “The Asian Reporter” under the title “Her Presence in Colors IX features 84 women artists from 24 countries”.
