Novik: They are children of the sun


Novik on painting sunflowers: 

I love to paint sunflowers. 
They are so bright and simple and symbolic. 
The movement of the sunflowers is so unusual - they have different pulls and movement, like they are alive. 
They are together,  they are talking to each other.
A field of sunflower is always alive a very alive place.
They are talking flowers. 
Very energetic.
The sun is very important for all our life.
I love being connected with the sun.
They are bright.
They are really children of the sun.
He represents his children growing on the fields and giving us lots of energy.
They have always inspired me. 
One of my first subjects here was sunflower.
Thy are a very spiritual subject to paint.
They have eyes, lots of eyes and are looking to the people.
This is a very unusual thing among the flowers. 
Very symbolic.
They have so many faces. So many things they can say to never ends.
They are moving
When you see them blowing in the wind in the field, they are moving like that.
Like they have hands and they are sometimes looking up, down, on the side and you see their life.
I can paint sunflowers a thousand times and they will always be secret and magical for me.

Artist's Statement

I have feelings, but I don't know why I am doing it. I don't know what's going on, but I know I have to do it. I love it. 

Everything comes during the work. I don't know where it comes from and how I am doing it. It is a secret from myself. No thinking. No remembering. No planning. It comes spontaneously. It is like a song I am singing, but I don't know the words. I never heard the song, but I am singing.

I don't know what is going on inside of me, but I can't live without painting. Something leaves me.  I go to another world.  It rules me. It comes like a necessary thing to make me happy when I am painting. Time stops for me. Time doesn't exist for me. 

Painting keeps me running, keeps me active.  It keeps me alive.
