Natasha Hohonova

Prize-Winning Painter

         Natasha Hohonova (born 1961 in Sverdlovsk, Russia) and Boris Hohonov (born 1958 in Nevyansk, Russia) are wife and husband artists from Ekaterinburg (Ural zone in Russia). Although they paint separately, working together they developed the unique art project ‘Ural Petro Art’. Ural Petro Art is a technique in which Boris and Natasha take the inspiration for their paintings from patterns in the slivers of minerals and precious stones they personally select and embed in their paintings.

         Between 1986 and 1991 Boris and Natasha were members of an underground artist group called “Vernisaj” (“Open Day”). Since 2002 they have also belonged to the Creative Union of Russian Artists and the international Artist Federation.

         “Petro” is Greek for “stone”. The art of engraving on stone is rooted deep in the Ural culture, but the idea to combine the traditional technique of painting with thin sections of natural Ural stone is a first. (The rough stone is sliced into thin fragments that are carefully polished and affixed onto the canvas in a special way).

         Here the stone is the tuning fork. The unique pattern of the stone, unsullied by man, becomes the epicentre of the forthcoming painting. At the junction of canvas, paint and stone an unexpected phenomenon of art is born. The artists neither argue with nature nor copy it – they accompany it, creating at the same time their very own and unusual work. Nature becomes a co-author, being a competent participant in the creative process.

         Today, despite the importance attached to the often used term ‘relevant’ the issue of true originality and novelty is particularly acute. It is obvious that synthesis and ecology have prominent place amongst the tendencies defining ‘new art’. Stones without doubt embody the idea of synthesis of nature and ecology and are also aesthetically self-sufficient. Additionally, because nature contains no two identical stones, each painting is unique such that even the original artist could not make a perfect copy of his own stone-infused painting.

        Boris and Natasha Khokhonov have had their work displayed in a number of exhibitions in Russia, USA, France and GB.
