Firebird is one of the most recent creations by Oleg and represents his exploration of form, the language of sculpture. His work has evolved from his training in classical sculpture through a search for his own unique language into a growing fascination with organic, abstract shapes. A previous series of works in beach stones foreshadows this interest in transformation as human touch interacts with objects in nature. Firebird takes the idea a step further by re-imagining the arising of life from the molecular level as something new begins to emerge from an almost chaotic "cellular soup" of bubble-like shapes.
