An independent polystylistic artist whose work combines a realistic approach with non-figurative aesthetics. Experimenting with various techniques, she explores the possibilities of transforming direct sensory experience into a universal symbolic message. Marianna devoted herself to painting after the end of her musical career, and this unusual personal trajectory influenced her plastic language: the paintings of Marianna Chayka are distinguished by special musicality of color.
Making her way in painting, Marianna consciously explored different approaches in order to avoid the tendentiousness of one school. Mark Ginsburg, the honored artist of Russia, set her hand, she studied the technique of intuitive painting with Svetlana Perotti and mastered plein-air painting with Dmitry Kholkin. Marianna considers Konstantin Korovin her mentor.
More than ten years ago Marianna Chayka's art began to develop its own unique style. The experience of plein-air painting, combined with experimental painting techniques, embodied in an approach that the curators define as "sensual realism". Many of the landscapes painted by Marianna Chayka contain features of abstract aesthetics, and light becomes the driving force of the plot.
The artist’s main vector is the study of the beauty phenomenon. Symbolic still life, plein-air series, a large canvas in experimental technique - regardless of genre and subject, Marianna Chayka sees her task in capturing the elusive beauty and embodying it on canvas.
Several dimensions are manifested at once in Marianna Chayka’s paintings - the visible, the sensory, the soniferous, and the one that is available only to supersensory perception.
