In her series of abstract acrylic and watercolour paintings Blue Bay, Yulia Martinova depicts the beauty and serenity that the ocean brings. Based in London, the artist has represented aerial views of marinas, in which a few sailboats and their shadows can be seen here and there. The pieces are immersive and with an almost mesmerizing colour. Even if the paintings are minimalist, they are miningful and topical. With the summer that has begun and the heat that is starting to be felt, Martinova’s work is a real freshness.
