Pavlodar Artist’s Paintings Exhibited in Astana

Nauruzova_04ASTANA – The work of painter Zhanetta Nauruzova, an artist from Aksu, in the Pavlodar region, is being showcased in the Has Sanat Gallery in an exhibition that will run from Feb. 18 to March 10.

Nauruzova’s main themes are nature, usually spring and summer scenes, and representations of light play a large part in her work. She paints the landscapes around her hometown, often incorporating historical images. Horses, significant in Kazakh culture, appear frequently, sometimes captured in the midst of a race. Flowers are another favourite image.

“Nauruzova likes to paint flowers, peonies and roses. Her still life paintings with flowers are like an etude [a short musical performance designed to demonstrate skill] and are shown with big colourful spots without unnecessary specification. A spontaneity in creating impressions runs through all her work, despite the subject and genre,” Ardaq Yussupova, candidate of art history said.

At the opening of the exhibition, her first in Astana, Nauruzova met guests and described the meaning behind her pieces. She said she has been painting since childhood and hates to leave her workshop. Fans of Nauruzova’s paintings from Russia bought most of her collection.

Nauruzova graduated from the Gogol Almaty Art College. Her works are in public and private collections in Kazakhstan, Russia, Tatarstan, Israel, the U.S. and other countries.
