It's impossible to pass by her expositions and remain indifferent. Something light, graceful and unique iridescent enters you from the first sight at these works. And you stand captivated in front of the triptych «Andromeda». The legend comes in life on a light transparent cloth. Unusual plastic, grace, decorative effect of details create sensation of unity, fantasy and reality. At first sight it seems, that the proportions are broken, but attentively peering in the works, you can see exact outlines expressed in movements. And as it seems to me, it's one of the main peculiarities of the young artist. Not every artist is able to transfer flight, as Inga could do in the third part of the triptych «Andromeda».
The tragic destiny of the real personage is vividly revealed in the triptych «Acedora». Violence of paints, precipitancy and grace of movements, lightness and spirituality all this transfers a vigorous life of Acedora, filled with sense. And the middle part is a sharp contrast to the first two ones. We see tragic loneliness and hopelessness in the instinctively lowered shoulders, stiffened figure and we are sure of the artist's great talent, who managed to depict the psychological condition of the heroine.
And next to these works there are pictures «Awakening» and «Flora» filled with joyful sensations of nature and triumph of life. The same lightness and grace are combined here with expressiveness of a sight and alive, direct perception of the actual reality. The young heroine of the cloth «Awakening» is full of spiritualized, elevated belief, ready to disclose her rich internal essence, and the open sight, the free gesture of the hand, embodied in the picture «Flora» as it speak: «Look, how beautiful I am. I carry all this for you, do not destroy me».
Bewitched, I stop in front of image of a young naive girl. Her sight, full of anxiety, hope, inexplicable fear, speaks for the rich inner world of the heroine. She is in the flight of dream of elevated long love. it seems to me, this is Inga Titova herself, who creates an unusual miracle and hopes for recognition and love of admirers of her talent.
Inga's technique is unfamiliar for me; I meet her works for the first time. But this meeting amazed me. I understood, that the batik was a high art accessible not for everyone. I'm glad, that Inga lives in our town and she will surprise us by her new works. Have a great flight, lovely Inga!
Date at Dark Blue Eyes
«Amurskaya Pravda», No. 136 from May, 22, 2002.
Her eyes are a whirlpool. Dark blue, bottomless, dragging away they are, it's easy to think and to be lost inside them. Since the first minutes of acquaintance and for ever: Today at the Amur Fair the first personal exhibition of the artist Inga Titova opens. «The First Dates» so she named her works.
batik are the pictures written on silk, a trend, which is rather rare, and for us it's almost exotic.
Inga's works bewitch by lyricism, carefully picked up color scale. There appears some shrill female vulnerability. The artist doesn't agree to the opinion, that «silk is cold».
It's warm, and in China silk even treats.
Probably, her works become very vital due to this attitude of life. If you come for the first date with Inga Titova, you are sure to have your souls warmed, your hearts will start from beauty, and your desire to live will simply tremble. We have tested it on ourselves.
