Statement

Artist’s statement                                       

 

My works can be divided into three main categories:

1)    White lines on dark background (executed mostly with gouache on cardboard):

“Party”, “Illusion”, “Cube” are examples of the body of work which I began in 1989.

Human forms, their interaction, linear transformations of the objects, rhythmic play of construction – these are the main features of my work. 

In those compositions I used line as a minimalistic mean for delivering my thoughts and vision. 

2)    Oil paintings (oil on canvas/cardboard)

“Red flowers”, “Crooked street”, “Green construction” are examples of my oil paintings, which are also based on human forms. Other works are abstract or semi-abstract; the examples are “Composition 6”, “Composition 7”, “Composition 14”. In these works I try to deliver light, space and color. 

3)    Digitally embellished drawings

This body of work is a natural continuation of my line-works. In 2006, I began applying digital effects to my drawings. The idea was to enrich simple line and make it look more complex, thus through that complexity create a new kind of form.

The examples of this body of work are “Untitled”, “Lovers”, “Autumn lovers”.

The main subject of my art has always been a human figure - the movement, expression, interaction of human forms. In 90s I executed my works mostly with white lines on dark background. In those compositions I used line as a minimalistic mean for delivering my thoughts and vision.  In 2000s I began applying digital effects to my drawings. I wanted to enrich a simple line and make it look more complex, thus through that complexity create a new kind of form. I call these works "digitally embellished pencil drawings". This name is due to the way of execution, that is - I scan my drawings and then get the final result by using different computer manipulations.
