About The Painting:

     Land of Milk and Honey follows the rich art historical tradition of figuration depicting the sensuous feminine form. Set against a feathered yellow field, Nazarov’s visceral, hourglass shaped subject appears to fade into the atmospheric splendors of nature. Simultaneously domineering and vulnerable in her seductive stance; Nazarov fashions a luscious human landscape exploring the culturally loaded territory of womanhood and all of its binary cultural associations – birth, death, nature, nurture, goodness, perversion, pleasure and danger.
