Andrei Kushnir's passions, art and nature, are expressed through a patient, refined and diligent commitment. Time, willingness to work long hours in heat and extreme cold, to perch on a rock over an icy stream, or in it, if that is where the best composition is to be found - or to hike a long distance with easel and canvas strapped to his back, all pay dividends in these persistantly arresting landscapes.
