Art of Affection
“Something must happen in your life, which will become a turning point for you later on”, an interesting artists Nato Sirbiladze says. For Natalia, this turning point has been love. “I was lucky enough when I found a very interesting person to whom I dedicated the whole of my creative energy and works. Even though he is no longer alive , he was the person who gave me the greatest energy and next to whom I wanted to be always
interesting and always resemble him...”
Having started at the age of 31, she indulged in more than 15 years of non-stop work: “Everyone was surprised, even me.” At the age of 21, while traveling by train, some guys talked to girls to flirt with them. When one of them asked Nato who she was by profession, she said: “an artist”. “It is not in my nature – I never deceive anybody. This innocent lie became fatal. Who could have imagined that after 10 years I would really start painting?” she smiles.
“Many artists used to say that it was impossible to teach me or correct something painted by me as I did not belong to any direction or genre. “ She is a self-made artist and has something in common with his great predecessor Niko Pirosmani, who was her main inspiration. Nato Sirbiladze sees this world in colors which are only hers. She has painted imitations of some series of Van Gogh, Gauguin, etc. However, her main brand is her ballerinas who remind the sweetest memories of her childhood.
Her paintings are transparent and purely like a child’s vision. Nato Sirbiladze, a woman in her 50s is not crafty at all. Her big candid eyes promise only kindness and faithfulness. She loves nature and humans and it is evident in her pictures. Her personal and professional creeds are closely linked and they express big affection towards everything and everybody. Of course, love for the man has taught her to love life and led her to self-realization; however, at her current age she believes that you have to be giving and be always open to the rest of the world. “Also, you have to love yourself and care for yourself, try to make yourself more perfect,” she says: ”For instance, I have been trying to cherish my muse. I wanted to be always interesting and clear. I believe that my colors won’t be as transparent as they are if I don’t not make sacrifice; that is, if I eat and drink too much. The balance and weight in the body are very important.”
Niko Pirosmani is the artist who has led her to the picturesque and endless world of painting. In her turn, she has painted a lot of things under his influence, but always with her own interpretation. I dare say that some influences are inevitable and positive, especially at the early stage of an artist.
Life is full of surprises. Who would have thought that her sole lie would come true? Who would have imagined that former librarian would become a famous painter? Great Jorge Borges, initially a librarian and later a distinguished author and critic, wrote: “Whole universe is a library. It is logical to think that the universe is endless. I daresay that the century’s problems resemble the library, which is endless and periodical.” Nato Sirbiladze follows her great colleague’s path in the labyrinths of universe, life and art. Her life has been extremely interesting and ample and a lot of things, we believe, are still ahead. Soon, the new book will be published; in it Nato Sirbiladze will be included among 32 other painters. “It is an honor for me and I thank everyone in charge for this wonderful gift”, she says and her kind blue eyes shine with energy and purity.
Nato Sirbiladze has had quite a number of exhibitions. She even has painted a series of icons. After one successful soiree, famous Georgian painter Gia Bughadze said: “This is the exquisite beauty from the upper spheres. God has sent this wonderful person to us as a bridge between heaven and the Earth. Believe me, if you hang a picture painted by her in your room, it will clean your atmosphere.” On 15 October, Nato Sirbiladze’s new exhibition will be opened.
