The visitors of the Bogoroditsky Palace-Museum are presented with 29 works by the artist, writer, poet, illustrator L. Talimonova (1971-2011), created for the period from 1989 to 2011. in Russia and the UK. Lyubov Talimonova was a member of the Union of Artists and a member of the Union of Writers of Great Britain.
"Who am I? And why am I in this world? ”- this is how one of the earliest poems of Love begins. The process of finding answers to these questions permeate her entire work: fairy tales, poems, paintings, illustrations. The works of L. Talimonova include the words of M. Haiderger that “an artistic creation embodies the thought of the master who created it, it is intended to reveal the deepest meanings of the displayed phenomenon, to express its most essential foundations. "
Comprehending the spatio-temporal structures of the world, Lyubov Talimonova creates a series of paintings: “Cosmos”, “Wanderings of the Spirit”, “Harmony of the World”, “Megaliths”, “Knowledge”, etc. She is free to express herself, but the purpose of her work is to reveal a spiritual idea. The ideas of other being, spiritual transformation, connection with the Supreme. Love boldly rushes to the wide spiritual space of the cosmos.
It solves the problems of space due to color, shape, line. In their collision, the poetry of the picture crystallizes. In their relationship, the philosophy of the artist is revealed.
In many paintings of L. Talimonova (“The passage of time”, “Knowledge in symbols”, “Giving fire”, “Erdene”) there is a calm, balanced scheme, in which the horizon passes in the very middle of the picture. This scheme is perfectly combined with the vertical format of the picture. The artist consciously and freely takes advantage of all the rhythmic and emotional possibilities hidden in the choice of the horizon, and depending on the theme, mood, dynamics of the picture (“Megaliths go to infinity”, “Dartmore”, “In the boundless sky”, “Time and ruins”, "Change of eras", "Sense of flight. Freedom"), manages the entire range of points of view, often including the highest (bird’s-eye view).
Along with the linear perspective, Love uses the light perspective. The design of the space pursues not only optical goals and serves not only to create depth. The effects of perspective have a deep aesthetic effect, create a rhythm, enhance the action, dramatize it, awaken certain emotions and moods. In so understandable depth, questions of perspective, color, tectonics, statics and dynamics of the depicted, air and color perspective are tied together.
But the main characteristic of L. Talimonova’s paintings is their intuitive, or substantive depth. As Merlot-Ponti accurately noted: “The depth of the pictorial image… comes from nowhere, settling down, growing on the canvas. "
In the artist’s paintings, there are generally accepted symbols of the time: the image of the clock (including the “soft” clock), astrological signs, the sphinx, Saturn, etc. Often, the moments of the distant past are given in the paintings, for example, the times when people built megaliths (from Greek: megas - large, lithos - stone). The artist, as it were, travels in time, trying to feel its essence, beauty and originality of moments and capture them in her paintings. The ancient man in the paintings of L. Talimonova is not a savage, but a man of fine spiritual organization, who is characterized by amazing abilities, now almost lost. The past in her paintings appears alive, real.
“Above the Sun” is one of the paintings on display. In the foreground is a snow-white lotus, a symbol of spirituality and infinity. In the mythology of the East, the lotus, growing by itself in the midst of pristine chaos, symbolizes the center of the universe. In ancient Egypt, lotus images are known in combination with images of the gods, with other sacred symbols. Lotus is the emblem of Upper Egypt. According to ancient Indian myth, the Universe was formed from fragrant lotus petals. In the ancient tradition, the lotus is the emblem of perfection, since its leaves, flowers and fruits form a circle. Also, it is a divine source of life. In the picture, the lotus has 7 petals. 7 is a magic, magic number, a sign of perfection, cosmic order, completeness of a cycle. In every religion, this number was associated with divine powers. The lotus leaf on the left transforms into a clock spilling with water, and water flows drop by drop into the river. On the lotus leaf to the right sits the Egyptian goddess. It is at the level of the sun, which is behind the lotus stem. Mountains shine in the distance, a river flows across the plain, here and there megaliths stand. And looking at the picture you understand that the ancient Egyptian (possibly Doparaon) and megalithic civilizations existed simultaneously, that the people of these civilizations communicated, and they both lived according to the laws of harmony, truth, goodness and beauty.
If the soul is bright, high, then its energy exceeds the energy of the sun. The High Spirit passes through time and space. He is not afraid of time, it can spill water and drop a drop into the river. The High Spirit and his ideas are above time, above the sun. When people have such an approach to life and such a worldview, then harmony reigns in their society.
In each picture of Lyubov Talimonova, there is a call for knowledge of the world, for reflection on life, for spiritual perfection.

She was lucky to visit many countries, get acquainted with the richest collections of works of art. Interest in myths and legends led her to Stonehenge and Avebury in England, in France she visited Karnak and Erdeven, the island of Gavrinis and the Kibron peninsula, where many megalithic structures were preserved, and visited Ireland.
Love very early asked herself: “Who am I? And why am I in this world? ”And it was in the process of searching for answers to the questions posed that she developed a philosophical mindset, developed her own understanding of the history of human civilization, the relationship of man and the universe, an understanding of the infinity of Cosmos and the value of earthly time. From her thoughts, visions, insights and dreams, she created her own special, unlike any other, fairy-tale and real, far and near, kind and joyful, radiant world. With her paintings and literary works, she called on adults and children to think about life, to know the mysterious and beautiful world, to the exalted joy of life. Serving the Truth, Good and Beauty has become the meaning of her life. She writes poetry, video parables, fairy tales. She herself illustrates her books.

Love called herself a wanderer and a pilgrim wandering along the star roads of eternity, and she defined her art as parapsychological painting. Being a representative of the philosophical trend in art, she brought with her creativity to the world the beauty and harmony of Cosmos.
The attitude of L. Talimonova to the ancient megalithic culture, the traces of which in the form of mysterious cromlech circles, menhirs, dolmens and stone alleys have been preserved around the world, was special. Entire megalithic complexes come to life on her canvases, a lonely fragile female figure in fluttering clothes as if recalls something well known to her and tries to tell the audience about bygone times, that megalithic structures played a significant role in the life of ancient civilization, served as “workers places "for predictors, were a kind of" antennas "of communication with extraterrestrial worlds. The artist, as it were, travels in time, trying to feel its essence, beauty and originality of moments and capture them in her paintings. Looking at the paintings of Lyubov, the viewer feels that once upon a time there was a completely different understanding of life on the earth, that something important was lost by us in the hustle and bustle and thunder of technological civilization…
L. Talimonova treated the works for children with great responsibility, she conceived each fairy tale as a synthesis of a word and a picture, where each illustration is part of the story, only without words.

Her tales are kind and instructive, L. Talimonova invested all her sincerity and kindness, her vast knowledge, all her rich imagination and her talent in them.
In 2000, already in England, Love wrote the first pages of the philosophical tale "The Swamp Prince". This is a hymn to spiritual nature, a hymn to life and love.

Love Talimonova was a highly educated, kind, sincere, open person. And although she had to go through exorbitant physical suffering (insulin-dependent diabetes from 20 months of age, almost complete loss of vision at 24 years old, kidney failure and more than 10 years of life on hemodialysis), her short life was filled with the joy of knowledge and creativity. Like the star-girl from her fairy tale, Love herself gave adults and children the wealth of her inner world, sought to touch the thinnest strings of her soul, offered to think about the beauty and infinity of the world, spoke in the language of the images she created and color harmony about the multicolor and polyphonic nature of the universe.
