About The Artwork

"Long Time Ago" is a captivating creation by Zakhar Shevchuk, where the canvas becomes a bridge between the past and present. In this large oil painting, Shevchuk resurrects the essence of a faded photograph, reviving the ghostly silhouettes of three figures, their forms blurring into a dream-like tableau that suggests the female form and hints at maternal themes with a subtle suggestion of a baby cradled in the central figure's arms. Shevchuk, a masterful Ukrainian artist, weaves memory and imagination into his work, using a semi-abstract approach that honors the source material — old family photographs — while inviting the viewer to engage in the intimate act of remembrance and reinterpretation. The painting's surface is alive with textural depth, where every stroke and color choice is an act of reverence for the fleeting nature of memory and time. This piece is a poignant reflection on the transient nature of life, as Shevchuk skilfully obscures the line between recognition and anonymity, prompting a personal reflection in each observer. Through "Long Time Ago," Shevchuk continues his exploration of the space between figurative and abstract art, encouraging a dialogue that is at once deeply personal and universally resonant.

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.
