The visual effect is that the observer feels by intuition the proposed motif assuming the appearance of presentiment, conjecture. Then it becomes apprehension, understanding, undergoing variations, interpretations, generalizations, and being incorporated in the dynamic figurative, in fluctuating and unusual images characteristic of modernism. This aesthetic conventional world is diverse. Here all the images, people and animals, are artistically equal. Here Torah is celebrated by dance on the sunset background, and expressiveness of the dance can send whirling the entire Universe. Here Sabbatical candles are piously lit. And here the velvety camels are pacing, bright bulls are abiding, bewitched peacocks are screaming, silvery queer fish are shining. Here Amazon is abiding with graceful Capricorn. Here the aristocrat prophetess foretells the fate. Here a young violinist girl and a golden-haired maiden with a mandolin in her hands, as if coming from the times of the Italian Quattrocento. Some of the images move from canvas to canvas. Sometimes these are accompanying attributes or favorite images, which come from close-up positions on previous canvases and become expressive components on the new ones, as, for instance, crimson pomegranates or bully dandy cocks always finding a reason for combat. But each time they appear anew, found out anew, though recognized for their color preferences.
The paintings of Anna Zarnitsky are thematically conditional, modern in their stylistics, where modernism of the first third of the 20th century is enriched with an up-to-date sensation of the objective world and the abstract conditionality. The world created by the artist is attracting, exciting, discovering the best of the human emotions, carried away by its festive color saturation, its capability of renovation and creation, its aesthetic aspiration for harmony. Creations of Anna Zarmitsky introduce the spectator to the mythological-theatrical realm rich of content, to associations and images full of life. Her creations render the sense of entering into a vast space, into a total scene causing the spectator to feel as if time stood still, and he is observing the moment which will never pass away.
The occurrences taking place in her creations are usually dramatic, and at the same time, the feeling transmitted to the spectator is that of romantic optimism echoing classic art. Anna created a new interpretation and combined distortion of vision with strong colors and created a peculiar style transferring to the spectator a feeling of aspiration to harmony. In her paintings, Anna Zarnitsky refers to images of real, mythological and Biblical fauna – peacock, crawfish, cock, fish, a winged bull, which attracted many artists throughout ages. During centuries these animals became universal archetypes which were allotted with intricate meanings used in astrologic, alchemic, religious symbolism and became an integral part of canon images.
