Artist Statement

I understand art as the universal language of communication and as a way of emotionally experiencing the metaphysical reality. I imagine the future in which personal creativity would be the natural way of living and the physical environment would become the creation material and/or medium. As an artist, the bases of my artwork are sculpture and objects. I see ceramics as the ideal material nowadays. Clay – is the smoothest and the most congenial material for me, perfectly universal and it allows for creating the ultimate form and color blending. Clay’s structure is most similar to human nature. During the burning processes, the dark, wet, organic portion is burnt away and the stronger, clearer substance remains. Same goes for the human spirit. In order to grow stronger in the right way, it should emerge out of all earthly tests with honor. Next to ceramics, I embraced painting. I was captivated by the canvas space and at this juncture in my vocation, the search for harmony of color and texture is my main focus. Most of the time, I find abstract painting extremely fascinating. I try to fill my paintings with expressions strong enough, to let the spectator feel the energy put in the depth of the canvas, transforming the perception of the picture in his own art act. As I search and develop my own style, I look at works done by Russian avant-garde artists, Tatlin, Larionov, Malevitch and Kandinsky. The ideal of highest expressiveness of shape, color and spiritually fulfilling for me are the paintings of Russian icon painters Dionisij and Rublev, where pictorial surface gets properties of portal between physical world and exquisite spheres. The only way I see being a true artist today: the way of experiencing the spiritual world and its expression by available earthly materials. Meanwhile, I don’t limit myself to abstract painting. Nowadays, the real and objective world as impacted by the information technology phenomenon is developing so quickly that it’s possible to express it only with short figurative cues and quotations. In summary, I understand art as a comparison of immediate and eternal, short and infinite, corporal and imperishable, trying to understand earthly reality in context of the Universe.
