Painting: Oil on Canvas.
The permanent presence of mysterious source, cast the senses forward into a state of longing and etheric reveries, just out of reach but coming into form.
The primary colors are purple and violet, blue, pink, and orange. Blue is a very soothing color that helps calm your mind and reduces tension. Purple is the color of imagination and spirituality. Violet that stems from blue is another color that brings peace to your soul. Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity. Optimistic and positive, orange adds richness and warmth to everything with which it is associated - it illuminates and enhances other things around it.
✔ The painting signed on the front and back. It is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges and comes ready to hang. "Imminence" conceived and completed by the summer of 2015 at the Hanurit Studio, Jerusalem.
About a process:
This piece I have started with no preconceived notion of where the process will go. There is something magical about the painting being spontaneous, as I only have a certain amount of control over what is out - the rest is serendipity. Although there are only three primary colors, I use various mixtures to create lots of additional shades. By choosing the right hues, I create the desired mood in my pieces.
About a series "Second Silence":
As with the first series, Second Silence is closely connected with Nature. It is denser and less muted in color than with First Silence but still maintains that hypnotic dream-like quality that the passages in previous works have. The scenery is evocatively atmospheric, melancholic, but in a good way. Through the conditions of a limited form, attention can turn from the essence of consciousness and direct perception to your own and self-created subject. If the mass pop-culture begins to encroach on your spirit, but you tend toward symbolism, silence, mystical wanderings, then this is for you.
About the artist:
Alexey Adonin’s paintings are at the intersection of abstraction and surrealism. The layered shapes of color ambiguously represent landscapes and castle-like structures, which appear isolated and far off into the distance, as if we are staring at a mirage that could disappear at any moment. His work projects an inherent tension, with a clear center point in each painting around which every element revolves and impels from. The sense of remoteness and apprehension in work is undoubtedly influenced by his experience as an immigrant, and the political and religious tension he lives with, in Jerusalem. Many of his paintings are inspired by his interest in philosophy and the universal forces that sublimely push and pull us along. He approaches his work without preconception and allows his unconscious mind to direct the formation of his surreal landscapes. As he puts it, “painting should walk through a sort of evolution, like a child who grows up.”
