Oscar Rabin is active/lives in Russian Federation, France. Oscar Rabin is known for expressionist, political themed land-and townscape paintings.
I worked as if possessed, trying to paint slick, syrupy, 'safe' things which were easily within the reach of the understanding of the 'powers that be'. I then destroyed these paintings one by one. I just couldn't bear to look at them'.
'In my painting, I experience the pleasure from the process itself, mixing and laying down the colours, enjoying their brightness and dimness, the subtle and broad brushstrokes, their smell. Then, I want express sorrow, happiness, hate, anger, love, thoughts about life and people. I want to capture life and communicate it through my own feelings. To achieve this, for symbols I use normal objects around me. Their meaning in painting is different than in real life'.
