This collection was mentioned in the article by Singulart Gallery: how-art-reacts-in-the-face-of-a-pandemic.

Several paintings from the collection were exhibited on SWISS ART EXPO 2020 in Zurich together with ARTbox.projects.
All paintings are also available on Artsy.

We are living now during the historical moment: new Coronavirus pandemic goes through the world. The people are scare and unsafe, the markets are falling and nobody knows about the whole consequences, which the virus brings to us.
As an artist, I can't step away and not to speak about my feeling and thoughts.

All COVID paintings are published in personal official catalogue (the copy is Included to your purchase).

Anastasia Vasilyeva about the collection:
"Today I want to tell you how the virus epidemic has affected me and my art. If you thought that this event had no effect on my work, then this is a mistake.
I know that many artists now join together to carry only positive, optimistic and beautiful things despite the virus. I noticed this trend a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps just when the Coronavirus started raging in the country where I live, Switzerland, and it has already reached Russia.
I have to say, I felt the virus coming even earlier. Switzerland wasn't infected at that time. But the disease was already clearly approaching its borders.

It was then that I decided that I would keep a kind of diary and document my feelings and thoughts in paintings. Perhaps it was because I came from Leningrad and we grew up on the famous diaries of the blockaded city. At that time I just wanted to be honest and just to capture what was happening in the paintings. Besides, it was not clear at that time how long the epidemic would last and what consequences it would have on us. I just wanted to reflect everyday feelings and do it honestly.
But I couldn't do it every day. At the moment, there are 15 works in the Documentary Paintings Collection.
I called it a non-commercial project. Because it is not made to hang beautifully on the wall or decorate the interior. It's made to someday remember how it was. After all, I'm sure that the thoughts reflected in the works were the thoughts of almost everyone who was faced with the coronavirus epidemic.

Sometimes it's feelings, thoughts. And sometimes dry statistics. Dry, but terrifying. But my feelings are also in these works. They are displayed in color and dynamics.

The epidemic is not over and it's very likely that the collection will expand.
I wish you all to stay healthy!"
