This painting is part of a series dedicated to the frigate Shtandart, a replica of Peter the Great’s admiral ship (1703) built by Vladimir Martus with a group of volunteers in 1994 – 1999 in Saint-Petersburg, the artist’s home town.
Moored at the quay, the ship can sometimes seem heavy and rigid. Everything changes at sea, when she spreads her sails like a giant seabird. Everyone who sails knows this feeling when the boat comes to life in perfect harmony with the elements. Human creation becomes a creature, alive and vibrant under the gusts of wind, in the waves.
