A woman alone with the solitude in her body and soul, depicted in the darkness of the night. Miserable and sensual, tender, alone, drowned in her emotions of solitude. A very expressive painting of Iliana, describing the sadness of solitude, the darkness parts of the woman soul and her tears in the night.
The nude figures of Iliana are so tender and emotional, but so are her portraits. In some of her works of art, Iliana paints portraits of women, that are so bare and expressive in their appearance, that the spectator is convinced that if he looks further at their bodies, they are naked as well.
The Woman in the paintings of Iliana is depicted bare, naked and vulnerable, with no makeup, no artificial style with plain emotions, as a black emotional canvas, just as the nude bodies she loves to paint. Iliana is painting her nude bodies and faces from her heart and soul, much like some of the great contemporary artists of the 20th century, such as Lucian Freud and Amedeo Modigliani.
