Evoking a sense of suspended wonder, Diana krilova's paintings lead us into a space of possible narratives connecting adults with children with nature.

After becoming a mother in 2011 Diana Krilova has adopted her painting style and colours to those more frequently seen in paintings made by children. Bright colours and multiple point perspective in her works create an atmosphere of a magical dream taking us back into a slow pace, following paths among trees. In this way landscapes are seen from the level of close up experience. Trees can be climbed and grass can be picked, there are many ways to go with every place creating new narratives. 

Diana Krilova's paintings ask us to slow down, to look around, to breath in and out, to remember how to perceive the world of nature in the way children do, opened-eyed, exploring and adjusting their play to the natural environment 

When landscape is seen at this level, by drawing us in it poses fundamental questions of what it means to be human. Why do most of us lose this connectivity with the world of nature when we grow up? What are the narratives of the world of nature beyond us and how to live together with nature without destroying it? 
Children learn on their feet, it's time to watch them play and learn how to wander again.
