  • The artwork depicts a young woman in a light dress dancing on the beach. This artwork is about the self-perception of a happy woman. She is as free in her dance as she is free in her manifestation in this world. Her dress echoes the waves of the sea, just as her soul interacts with the outside world and is in harmony with it. This woman simultaneously hears herself, as she is absorbed in her dance, and responds to the external, changing state of the sea. In this painting, the artist draws the viewer's attention to the fact that it is important for every woman in the world to be happy, heard, and manifested, rather than being subordinate to the patriarchal system or rigid social requirements.
    The story of Daria Gerasimova's becoming an artist under the pseudonym GerDa is just about this. She was a well-behaved child, graduated from school and university, got a regular office job, as her close circle and society wanted her to. When she realized that she was crying every morning on her way to work, Daria realized that she had to change something. But it was not easy. Any attempts to approach her life in an unconventional way, all of her surroundings responded with rebellion. "Sit in the office until maternity leave, they will pay you great money there. What else do you need? A good job for a young woman - don't complain." It was a struggle with the whole world for her happiness. You can't shut down a creative nature. Daria began to try to find what she needed. She studied to be a makeup artist and began to combine 2 jobs. But after moving to another city, Daria took up artistic brushes and turned into GerDa.
    Few believed that it would become something serious. The artist received the main support from her husband. Five years later, GerDa successfully sells her paintings all over the world, writes a lot of works, and now does not cry every morning.
