Painting: Oil on Canvas.
The religious impulse is nothing more than a desire to remember what we have forgotten. There is no need for religion, to worship anything unless it be life itself. Our true nature is shrouded in mist, its glory dimmed by a veil of flesh. Our problem is that we have forgotten; our mission is to try and remember the dream we had before we fell asleep.
Conceived and completed by the spring of 2012 at the Island Studio, Jerusalem.
This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang. Signed on the front and back.
About a process:
This piece has started with no preconceived notion of where the process will go. There is something magical about the painting being spontaneous, as only have a certain amount of control over what is out - the rest is serendipity. This is a multilayered work. Alexey builds up layers using a variety of techniques with large windows in each, so that the final images are a kind of collage of textures.
About a series:
Alexey believes all the information, every possible path of each human is already written and stored. A certain variant of it becomes active when the human intention powers it up. This intention comes not from the logical mind, who cannot access this kind of information by default, but by the unity of soul and mind. It's where the mental doors are open, it's where we become Gods. In this series, the concept of a unity is attested by Alexey, through the unique images and characters, that is the real and nonverbal language of the soul.
