About The Artwork

The picture is a sketch for my series "Freedom". I asked myself what it actually means to live in freedom. Do we even know? Is freedom perhaps nothing but an (ideal) principle? Or a moral and political value? Can it be a real fact? If I were to ask you now, "Do you believe that you are free?", you would say, out of inner conviction, "Yes, I am free." However, this statement usually means nothing other than: "I believe that I am free." Because often it is just a belief, since one has never thought further about how one could prove that it is indeed so. Most of the time people cannot support the claim "I am free" with reasons or arguments But then it would only be logical to ask: Why on earth do I believe that I am free, when in fact I may not really be free?Where does this belief come from?

My name is Maxim Fomenko, I'm a freelance artist from Nuremberg. I studied at the Nuremberg Academy of Arts, study program "Free Art“. Completed 2012 as a master student.Since then I am a successful, freelance artist. My work is in various open and private collections Europe and the USA. My art is about the artist himself, here I ask the question, how does the artist of today look like compared to the artist in the past, how has he changed in the course of art history. How much has his transformation of themes that he dealt with thousands of years ago like feminine beauty, death and Paradis changed. We remember the past epochs with beautiful female scenes of, for example, Ingris, Degas, Renoir or Matisse. Then the fright of the 20th century from Picasso, Braque and so on until today. What remains for the modern artists? Everything seems to be said, all styles and all directions are exhausted, maybe that's why the subjects have to be redefined and reinterpreted. If I may paraphrase Malewisch "it is no longer enough to create a mattress for the night of love".
