About The Artwork

Acrylic on the​ glue gesso primed​ wooden​ panel.​ The borders are gilded with pure 23-carat gold leaf (Noris Blattgold). Locked together with the things and memories we've collected. There are no more spectators around. And​ do we need this stuff now, being​ alone with it? Or was it just a cover​ to​ the public? No, this​ is not a censure —​ just a suggestion to think about. I'm happy to say, I like​ this shine of gems and gold​ even if I'm the only one who sees it. So I prefer​ to hold jewels​ in my hands and look at them, rather than put them on. Perhaps this is the only action that makes sense now. Endless contemplation of a world shrunk to the size of a single room. Vanity due to​ the sole possession of beauty, which doesn't​ need to be protected from anyone...​ However, you can't show it to anyone either.

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.
