About The Artwork

This captivating oil painting evokes a haunting atmosphere with its depiction of a silhouette, seemingly dusted or lifeless, against a backdrop of dark, almost black hues. The artist skilfully employs elements of brightness and intricate forms that coalesce to shape a human figure, blurring the line between abstraction and representation. The artwork emanates a profound emotional charge, evoking a sense of introspection and contemplation. In this modern interpretation of a classic Biblical subject, Zakhar explores the poignant theme of mortality. Departing from the traditional portrayal of the sorrowful Virgin Mary mourning over the body of the deceased Christ, the artist employs alternative artistic means to convey feelings of sadness and grief. Through a masterful composition, a thoughtfully chosen palette of colours, and the semi-abstract form reminiscent of a lifeless body, Zakhar invites viewers to reflect upon the fragility and transient nature of life. The artwork will be shipped carefully and safely rolled in a durable tube. Rolled artworks can easily be re-stretched.

Art, to me, is a profound exploration of the world that surrounds us - a journey of discovery, experience, and self-understanding. It is a medium through which I unravel the essence of things - their colors, forms, and the interplay between them. I believe in the power of simplicity, in the art of removing the excess and uncovering the necessary, much like a sculptor chisels away at stone. In my paintings, I strive to distill forms to their purest essence, reaching a point where nothing else can be removed without sacrificing meaning. The "necessary" elements, as I perceive them, remain, serving as conduits for my impressions and self-reflections on the subject at hand. My aim is not to depict something specific but rather to transfer the emotions and thoughts evoked by the object onto the canvas. I seek artistic forms that can boldly and vividly capture the essence of these feelings, rather than mere visual representation. In this pursuit, my work often exists on the precipice between figurative and abstract art - place where emotions take precedence over strict visual interpretation. Through my art, I invite viewers to embark on their own contemplative journeys, to interpret the subtleties and engage with the interplay of emotions and forms. Each brushstroke carries the weight of my perceptions, inviting you to join me in this exploration of the human experience. zakhar@klossart.com
