Vladimir Nazarov, ‘My Own Love’, 2016,  Impact Art Gallery

The Poetry Series by Vladimir Nazarov

A variation of the Symbols series that features classic and contemporary poetry within an emotionally charged canvas.

Vladimir Nazarov combines his multi-layering technique with meditative contemplation to create the Symbols Series. Each piece serves as an embodiment of a full conversation, communicated along the canvas from one edge to the other. In the Symbols Series one may encounter vivid colors, cosmic symbolism, and written language.

Spoken word amounts for a small percentage of meaning during speech. Over 90% of meaning in a conversation is derived from body language and tone. Each Symbol Painting communicates with all three levels: Verbal, Visual, and Vocal discourse. Symbol paintings are often 3 or more paintings layered into a single piece. Each painting opens itself to interpretation on multiple levels because it speaks to its viewers much in the same multilayered way they communicate with each other.

Feautring the Poem I’d Mourn The Hopes by Thomas Moore

I’d mourn the hopes that leave me,

If thy smiles had left me too;

I’d weep when friends deceive me,

If thou wert, like them, untrue.

But while I’ve thee before me,

With heart so warm and eyes so bright,

No clouds can linger o’er me,

That smile turns them all to light.

‘Tis not in fate to harm me,

While fate leaves thy love to me:

’Tis not in joy to charm me,

Unless joy be shared with thee.

One minute’s dream about thee

Were worth a long, an endless year

Of waking bliss without thee,

My own love, my only dear!
