'The idea for a new direction in my recent work is to find harmony in movement and proportion, elegance and simplicity in form. This is all combined in 'Harmony,' 'Eternal Youth,'  "Olympic Spirit' and 'Wild dancers'. One look at these sculptures should fill you with excitement and pleasure and a desire to touch them. The human body forever feeds my imagination, inspiring me as an artist to create again and again. 

But only the moment of discovery within our self has the meaning, and moves the artist to find a new language for these creations.  We treasure only the moment of discovery within our self. 

The hidden parts of our innermost natures are analogous to the secrets of the cosmos. We are constantly trying to uncover them, displaying them in the light of our understanding.' Larissa is consistently intent on capturing moments, spirits and essences; so much so that her legacy will be clear to both present and future generations 

Larissa Smagarinsky draws the inspiration for her themes from a vast arena. Her stimuli come also from the Bible, ancient history, modern events and from human emotions. However her main interest has been and still is the human body in repose or movement. Movement fascinates the artist and many of her most successful works embody movement in sport,  gymnastics and dance. Some sculptures are just called 'Movement' (1993) others are more closely  defined eg: 'Crazy ballet' (1988) and 'Wild Dance" (2002). Her other great interest is in the  portrayal of love from mythology and the present. Larissa Smagarinsky explores its many aspects from the highly erotic in 'Lover's Ecstasy' (1990) and 'Tired Lovers' (1990)  to the maternal filial love and finally to the sublimated divine love in "Madonna" (1992).

Larissa is consistently intent on capturing moments, spirits and essences; so much so that her legacy will be clear to both present and future generations.
