About The Artwork

Icon Descent into Hell. The basis is the icon of Andrei Rublev. The icon of the Victory over death is written in the traditional canonical Old Russian style. It is made according to old technologies. Multi-layer drawing with egg tempera is performed on a primed board using washed chalk and linen fabric and animal glue. The soil is called "levkas". Linden wood board. On the front side, a symbolic depression in the board is the “ark”, which is at the same time a frame and a protective barrier for the preservation of the painting layer. On the back of the board are two oak veneers. Leaf gold leaf is applied in the icon. At the end of the painting, the icon is covered with a layer of varnish and a protective layer of varnish. The back side of the board is treated with a stain, antibacterial protective coating. The year of writing the icon is 2011.

The method I taught was effective and different from the traditional one. The lessons were based on a deep study of the works of ancient icon painters, in the best traditions of sacred art, using constructive drawing, plastic anatomy in combination with rhythms. In fact, icon painting is a very responsible occupation and requires too much effort. When you paint an icon, you are faced with such tasks as conveying transcendence through the image, lack of passion, anonymity of auto painting. And the difficulty lies in the fact that on the icon, like no other work, all the imprints of the artist's mood and his emotional state are visible.

Rhythm affects us on a subconscious level. Rhythm as visualization, as a reflection of interaction. There is interaction in everything, its circle is determined by the range of rhythm. Thought comes as a touch ... and the picture becomes a prophecy. A prophecy about your inner states and family events ... A prophecy of social cataclysms ... and terror ... And sometimes the result does not correspond to the original plan .... and I feel that the hand sometimes obeys some kind of Energy. Thus, the painting depicts a premonition of sadness, who synthesized in himself personal grief - the death of his father and a public tragedy - the terrorist attack in Paris and the beginning of the war in Ukraine. The same foreboding of war was the image of Hitler and graphic works: the harsh https://www.saatchiart.
