The "Little Gulliver" characters were initially created in acrylic on large paper, then in smaller formats. Bringing all these little characters together creates a strange symphony, the theme of which is a giant in miniature. For those willing to play the game of interpretation, the artist's secret lies in the absurdity and paradox of his terminology and pictorial style. 

At first glance, all these works appear to be identical, an impression reinforced by their format. But on closer inspection, the differences quickly become apparent. Here, an observer with his walking stick, there, a blissfully happy man with his doll, then a tough guy, watching over traditions with his dog, and finally an investigator-evader inspecting the corpse of a cockerel with a magnifying glass.

Changing moods, inner life, the depths of the Soul, dramatic emotions - these are all messages sent by the artist and proof of his affection for the 'Little Gulliver'. Natalia invites us to rediscover the secret of her search for something beyond innocence in her paintings.

The ideas her work are based on are reduced to the point they appear flat and placard-like, her subjects resembling comic book superheroes.
