Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Where, besides my thought, can I so skillfully hide from myself!? Who lived to leave? Who died to mourn? ... The self-search is for patient souls; it’s for those adventure seekers who take their time because they know that what matters is the journey, not the destination.
The primary colors are blue and red. Blue is the color that seeks peace and tranquility above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation. Red is a hot, robust and stimulating color that represents energy.
✔ The painting signed on the front and back. It is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges and comes ready to hang. "Wanderer" conceived and completed by the summer of 2012 at the Island Studio, Jerusalem.
About a process:
This piece I have started with no preconceived notion of where the process will go. There is something magical about the painting being spontaneous, as I only have a certain amount of control over what is out - the rest is serendipity. Although there are only three primary colors, I use various mixtures to create lots of additional shades. By choosing the right hues, I create the desired mood in my pieces. "Wanderer" is a multilayered work. I build up layers using a variety of techniques with large windows in each so that the final image is a kind of collage of textures.
About a series “A Longing To Be”:
A Longing To Be reflects a dynamic link of man and the multidimensional interwoven world, born of his nostalgia for being, longing for duration, for permanence, and absoluteness – pieces tapping into a uniquely symbiotic relationship between color and form. The mystery alive in this series transmits an experience born anew yet unearthed for the first time; simultaneously it connects the spaces of temporary and eternal expressed through the tools of art.
About the artist:
Alexey Adonin’s paintings are at the intersection of abstraction and surrealism. The layered shapes of color ambiguously represent landscapes and castle-like structures, which appear isolated and far off into the distance, as if we are staring at a mirage that could disappear at any moment. His work projects an inherent tension, with a clear center point in each painting around which every element revolves and impels from. The sense of remoteness and apprehension in work is undoubtedly influenced by his experience as an immigrant, and the political and religious tension he lives with, in Jerusalem. Many of his paintings are inspired by his interest in philosophy and the universal forces that sublimely push and pull us along. He approaches his work without preconception and allows his unconscious mind to direct the formation of his surreal landscapes. As he puts it, “painting should walk through a sort of evolution, like a child who grows up.”
