The experience was painful but valuable. But you can only get a gain from your pain if you pause and take time to reflect on your actions, feelings, and thoughts. This project is a tribute to the lockdown wisdom, that each of us faced in a unique way. We tried to imagine what the kids would do if they were locked down on their own in a situation similar to a pandemic version of "the Lord of the Flies" story. No parents, no rules, but not too much freedom either. So in our narrative, the kids make themselves the kings and queens of their lockdown home kingdom using paper and toys to create their symbols of power. Those symbols are fragile, they don't last long and are easily broken. But isn't it true for anything in life? Any habits, ways, things we get so much used to can disappear in a second. Psychorealism My works are depiction of psychological and emotional states, whether existing or desired. So in this sense I can’t call them surrealistic, as surrealism is based on dreams and unconscious, but rather "psycorealistic" or subjectively realistic. The “realistic” part is very important to me. I want to make my images as believable as possible, therefore I like to keep little imperfections like wrinkles on clothes or wall cracks untouched, or should I say unre-touched. At the same time, my goal is to surprise the viewer and make their jaws drop, simultaneously finding comfort, relief, and release in what they see. I use the instruments of minimalism, reducing all the clutter, to make my works look sharper, more straightforward, and to the point. I want to give my audience a breath of fresh air when they look away from the messy, unstable, polluted, and chaotic real world and get into a clean, controlled, and calm reality, where it’s ok to be yourself. It’s like finding a psychological or (you can say “spiritual”) home. What kind of feeling does it bring to your home? Peace and tranquility. Strength and confidence. A grain of melancholy. With a bit of a whim, mystery, and fantasy. It will always be a gentle and quiet reminder that nothing is what it seems and you should always go deeper to perceive the true meaning. How I work I choose muted tones, strictly organized compositions, clean minimalistic spaces, and lots of symbolism to convey my ideas. Each visual story here has a definite plot but is always open to interpretation. My Process Each photo takes from 1 week to several months of planning and preparations: thinking through the story and the plot, planning the color scheme, sketching, scouting for locations, creating the props, choosing the suitable wardrobe, looking for the right makeup and hairstyle looks and then blending it all together. In some cases, a whole team is involved in the shooting process. I never use stock imagery to create my art, I shoot all the details myself right there on location, so when everything is combined in the final piece the work looks as realistic as possible, no matter how surreal it might seem at a first glance. Editing is a big part of the creative process, often the whole concept might change while I digitally develop the work. Editing is usually done after 2-3 months after the shooting has been done. This allows me to reevaluate and deepen my initial intentions and ideas.
