About The Artwork

Alive. Pull through no matter what. Through the thickness of various obstacles, problems, reflections of the inner demons. Breaking through and being covered by that mass again. But still, one can see the brightness of life's colors, feel its endless celebration even being in tears and alone.​ This painting was created in an extraordinary period, after more than six months of self-isolation and quarantine. Without any hope for future changes for the better. All that we had to go through is presented here in the form of colourful spheres. They are all made of various materials, and it is not clear what are these substances exactly. Though what can be a ball of fear or financial difficulties or loneliness made of? Most likely everyone will form their own association. The viewer can choose any material.​ So, each of these spheres represents something. But why are they so cheerful? This is an offer to consider each of the problems a challenge. To see the light where it seemed to be gone.​ This is an image of the triumph of life, hope, and change. A picture of the artist's own experience in transforming the negative and imagining something dark and fearsome as bright and festive.

Professional full-time artist. Born in 1987 in St. Petersburg. In my artworks, I explore the phenomenon of human identification (including self-identification) through the objects of the material world created or used by them. The study of the "person - artefacts" link led me to the series that depicts the surrounding objects as independent players involved in the story. In contrast to this solidly existing matter, I pay attention to the imperceptibly passing moments. Shadows, iridescent light, a cloud, a passing glance... For these subjects, I use a different style of painting, as blurred as the captured scenes. So, my practice is a journey between eternity and a moment, light and shadow, history and the present day, matter and illusion. It's an endless exploration of different spaces, the essence of things, and the depth of human minds.
