«Гагарин» 70x70

Anastasiia Prosochkina

70 х 70 см, смешанная техника, холст, 2019


Фигура Гагарина и космический корабль «Восток», летящий по орбите, возвращают нас в день, когда впервые в космос отправился человек. Усиливают этот эффект перемещения в прошлое настоящие вырезки из газет с заметками от 12 апреля 1961 года, которые стали фоном для этой картины.


Подвиг на страницах газет и в наших сердцах. Картина нарисована ко Дню космонавтики.

«Женский экипаж “Союза”» Ø70

Anastasiia Prosochkina

Ø70, холст, акрил

Полностью женский экипаж Союза, пока что, выдуманный, собранный из реальных крутых женщин, - космонавтки Анны Кикиной, астронавтки Саманты Кристофоретти и участницы изоляционных экспериментов и спасательницы МЧС Анастасии Степановой. Такой состав экипажа - пожелание заказчика. А еще, пожалуй, это самый знаменитый ракурс Союза - так мы видим экипаж в трансляциях перед отправлением на Землю.

Холст, акрил Ø70 см. Заказчику была важна сама идея, поэтому оригинальный холст продается. Одна из копий на холсте уже отправилась Анастасии Степановой, другая нашла свое место в Московском офисе ESA.

Никто из вышеперечисленных женщин не является заказчиком :)

«Parked and took off» 45x90

Anastasiia Prosochkina

45 х 90 см, холст, акрил, 2019


Parked and took off — «Запарковался и улетел». Фантазия о шаттлах, взлетающих в космос каждый день, как сегодня взлетают самолеты. :) На переднем плане припаркован ретро-автомобиль Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser 1972-го года выпуска, а на заднем — взлетает один из «Спейс шаттлов».

«InSight» 75x105

Anastasiia Prosochkina

70 х 70 см, холст, акрил 2019


Картина в скетчевом стиле про мисcию NASA InSight, которая должна рассказать нам о том, что происходит в недрах Марса. Поверхность планеты объемная и с красивой фактурой - выполнена фактурной пастой и покрыта кракелюрным лаком на одном из этапов.

Эскиз для этой картины я рисовала во время прямой трансляции посадки аппарата на поверхность планеты:

Did you also get happy shivers when it landed? Made this rapid sketch on my iPad while watching the online translation. Thank you, #Nasa, for inspiration and congrats for everyone who works on #InSight, you are great!

"Soyuz Fem Crew" Ø70 $1700

Anastasiia Prosochkina

Ø70, acrylic on canvas

This painting shows a  fictional all-women crew of the Soyuz spacecraft: Anna Kikina from the cosmonaut team, Samantha Cristoforetti (ESA) and Anastasia Stepanova (SIRIUS-2019). The painting carries a feminist message for gender equality for all in space. 

Currently,  there is only 1 woman in the Russian cosmonaut team. Out of the 122 cosmonauts that have flown in total, only 4 have been USSR/Russian women.  Around the world, obstacles, stereotypes, and unequal access to education have historically limited womens’ full participation in the sciences, engineering, and space exploration. If the future of space is to benefit all, it must be inclusive of all.

"Gagarin" 70x70cm $1900

Anastasiia Prosochkina

70 х 70 cm, mixed media on canvas, 2019


April 12, 1961 is the date of the first crewed spaceflight. On that date, Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became one of the most recognized and popular people in the world. Everyone came to recognize his charming smile, and he inspired newspaper headlines and dreams of space exploration around the globe. . This became an unprecedented triumph of Soviet space technologies and a symbol of a wonderful future where humankind could learn more about our universe than we previously dreamed possible. The painting features Gagarin after his landing, against the background of fading newspapers. His parachute is still floating, the capsule is there — in the background as well. Over Gagarin's head there is a blueprint of the Vostok spaceship against a panorama of the Earth. On an orbit around it, there is the tiny Vostok spacecraft performing its first manned flight around the Earth.

"The Dreamer from Kaluga" 55x75cm $5000

Anastasiia Prosochkina

55х75 cm, acrylic on canvas

Everything starts with a dream. There was a man in Kaluga, odd man with the biggest ideas carried in his heart and mind. This man, who was laughed at, as it often happens with those, who looked way beyond their time, lived in a tiny house in the middle of the nowhere, in a small Russian town called Kaluga, surrounded by the forest. His name was Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and he was the greatest dreamer of his time.

Late at night, when all sounds evaporated to the sky full of stars, only his window was touched with the oil lamp light while he was passionately scribbling in his writing-book. His hand-drawn scheme of the first spacecraft is in the middle of the painting and the result of his dreams, a real Soyuz spacecraft is above.

This painting is the most precious from all the collection. It’s the first painting I made in the space theme, the most mysterious, the most romantic one. People often write to me about buying it, but I am not sure I am ready to sell it. Now it travels from the exhibition to exhibition. Write to me and I’ll think about it.

"Falcon has landed!" 53x80cm $2700

Anastasiia Prosochkina

53x80cm, acrylic on canvas

The sophisticated algorithms of automatic control do not appear in the vehicle on their own. No matter how smart the rocket’s software is, it can only reflect the skill and talent of those who created it and the ingenuity of human mind. This painting is a tribute to all people who dare to implement challenging technical ideas no matter what.

Propulsion, avionics, flight dynamics, software, operations engineers and many others come together to the SpaceX launch control center and watch with almost childlike joy how their creation soars into space, works in space and then returns to the Earth with a phenomenal accuracy.

"Buranodrome" 90х60cm $2500

Anastasiia Prosochkina

90х60 cm, acrylic on canvas

Do you like Energia-Buran program? O, I do. Powerful and brave, this project became one of the greatest USSR efforts in challenge between humans and gravity. So you understand why I carried this idea for a really long time, pretty much from the moment I started drawing in space theme. Here you see the panoramic view of the distant planet with the detailed Energia-Buran on the foreground. I think, it is getting prepared for the start. Three people on the left corner are watching it from the bottom. I prefer to think of them as a family. I don’t know if they’re space tourists or colonizers of this mystery planet. By the way, it's red, but it’s not Mars - this planet is floating in space far beyond the Solar System. Maybe it’s TRAPPIST-1 system? The red color symbolize the USSR. Closer to the horizon you see another Buran, launching into the sky, behind it - the domes of habitats. The third Вuran is on the right, i drew the moment after the boosters fell off. Also, if you watch closer, you can see that some stars are going up too. Those are not the stars but distant Burans lifting off! The whole cosmodrome of Energia-Buran.

"After the 1st EVA" 55х75cm $3000

Anastasiia Prosochkina

55х75 cm, acrylic on canvas

A.Leonov and P.Belyayev 16-19 Marth 1965


The cosmonauts  are waiting for the rescue team deep in Siberia, you can see the descent vehicle(capsule) near them.
This was the first time ever a man performed EVA. So the circle scheme shows as with little pictures how actually the process of launch and descending was performed.
That was also very difficult flight, everything that could go wrong, went wrong, but they returned home. A.Leonov and P.Belyayev waited in cold forest for the rescue team for about two days after their landing, and this is also the part of their heroic deed. 
The cosmonaut Leonov is also an artist! And that was a surprise to discover, that my paintings included this were exhibited in the same hall with his canvases!

"Of course I still love U" 75x105cm $3200

Anastasiia Prosochkina

75x105 cm, acrylic on canvas

The first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket separates and begins its journey back home. Speed is more than two thousand meters per second, altitude is more than 150 kilometers. The stage makes a flip maneuver and prepares for the boostback phase. Carefully calculated burns slow down the vehicle and guide it to the drone ship in the illimitable ocean.Powerful thermal and aerodynamic load stress. Materials are working at the edge of its performance capabilities. High-precision control system is operating with the grid fins and cold gas thrusters to overcome disturbances. Suicide burn! The central engine ignites at the last moment, levels the stage under drone ship, the landing gears deploy and — perfect landing!

Of course I still love you. Beautiful story of technology and romance.

"O'Neill cylinder" 87x75cm $2000

Anastasiia Prosochkina

87x75 cm, acrylic on canvas

The image of the space habitat, inspired by the book "The High Frontier” by Gerard O'Neill. It was written in 1977 and brought to the world the very first ideas of Space habitats. His book includes romantic "letters from space parts", a couple telling about their life in the space colony, like they were writing to friend left on Earth. In one of this letters they described popular sport - flying foot-powered planes in zero gravity. To do that, you should climb to the highest point of the landscape - the closer you are to the center of the rotating cylinder, the less you weight. And then the fun begins!

"Virgin Galactic" 49x90cm $2000

Anastasiia Prosochkina

49x90 cm, acrylic on canvas


Interesting approach to the concept of a suborbital tourism. Unique spacecraft SpaceShipTwo separates from twin-fuselage mother ship WhiteKnightTwo, takes run by the rocket engine in the back and reaches space. There, at altitude more than 100 km,  lucky passengers can enjoy zero-g and watch a mind-blowing view of home planet for several minutes. Then spaceship makes a soft re-entry and come back to the one of the most beautifully designed spaceports — Spaceport of America.

Despite its turbulent history, the project keeps going. Extravagant Richard Branson is confident about success!

My cradle of sunflowers

Anastasiia Prosochkina

713.jpg

Try to obtain self-confidence and blossom!
This ground's yellow pallet tragic and profound,
I need to be specifically awesome,
While I'm a man that's carefully bound -
Sort of reflection on the pure mount.
And metaphors  expand to cosmic round.

And now it's time to say thank you to huddle,
You see, I wanted just  my soul to state.
I lost concern, that's never been a trouble,
My interest was never blind in grade,
Against my will back to my rueful feelings...
Proclaim unholy everything they don't  contain!


And one advice for me to follow fast:
I strongly recommend myself to find a shelter,
And never try again to animate the past -
it has this simple-hearted and high-tony savour.
Gets up my nose  in between times,
I felt it, 
dancing in the stars, 
They tried to save me.
I hoist my white flag, fire primes.

I know this episode, I've already seen it,
The distant forest as a blue background,
And dandling by the waves of never happened sea,
In sentimental sweet sunflowers' cradle,
We are right here, on the foreground.

And birds traject me their signs in chirling,
They know my way to save this nonexistence feeling

Out of milk

Anastasiia Prosochkina

10078.jpg

Amorphic  morning after all
While everything seems so unreal
This weird banality we live
Had never been so crystal clear

My mind is wide, my room's so small
I try to look through solid wall
But it turns to be a mirror
Through this mirror I see stars
Through those stars I fly to zero
Through my mind I ask dark glass:
Please update request for hero!

The universe won't response...

And it's dark
And it's black
Just like my coffee.

And I drink another one
Waiting bright stars to explode
Wondering how does it feel
If unexpected star is born

And my lamp starts to blend
And only if I am not blind
This universe from my wall
Goes right to my cap of coffee in my hand
...just another, straightforward, way to my head
And this wall is now just a copy
Of the one behind

And I do another gulp
Of this amazing galaxy
Thinking if meditation is overrated
Ponder over my own center of gravity
Completely devastated.

And I kill another cup
Of this black galaxy
Totally frustrated.

Today we are out of milk
And my coffee seems to be darker
And I feel our home like a shelter
It will be better.
