About The Artwork

Belongs to the "Organic Series. The cells of our body". Thanks to modern microscopes, we can see the unique photos and video of cells that make up our body. This is a fascinating spectacle that evokes in us an indescribable delight and amazement. We did not know before what beautiful and wonderful microcosm of cells is hidden from our eyes! The series is devoted to the project “Human Genome” and other studies in the field of molecular and cellular biology. I was inspired by watching the movie “Our Secret Universe. The HiddenLife of the Cell”. A fantastically spectacular reconstruction of processes inside the cell, based on studies of microbiologists and photographs taken by a scanning tunneling microscope. It looks like an exciting action movie. The plot of the film – the cell of the human body is attacked by the influenza virus. The virus is a masterpiece of evolution and design! The process of successive overcoming of all kinds of protective mechanisms of the cell is demonstrated. We can see what happens when the virus gets to its cherished goal of the cell nucleus. Intrigue, exciting and unpredictable plot, large-scale battle scenes, the battle of chaos and order, the cell strikes back! Also I was inspired by viewing photos from the image library “Wellcome Image Awards”. In the paintings of this series, I tried to convey my delight and surprise at what is happening inside us daily. The purpose of the series is to draw attention to these issues, which are of great importance for medicine. We are moving towards understanding the full genetic portrait of a person that will soon change our world. We must be prepared for these changes.

Artist Statement My art is a reflection of the nerve of the era (zeitgeist). It rethinks the complex processes of searching for a new world order through social and military crises. The prematurely proclaimed “end of history” did not happen, the “grand narratives” returned and changed our ideas about the world - it is now seen as unpredictable and unreliable. The philosophical paradigm of our time is in a state of oscillation and simultaneity between the opposing aspects of the cultural codes of previous eras and modernity. We find ourselves at the intersection of the collapse of the old and the construction of a new world. The interdisciplinary approach of the metamodernist artist allows me to observe this transition and explore it comprehensively from the point of view of my constant interests: politics, psychology, sociology, futurology. That is why my art creates tension and conflict, while simultaneously showing a way out of it through a combination of contrasting phenomena: destruction and creation, clarity and ambiguity, irony and sincerity, relativism and the need to make choices. My visual language is expressed predominantly by a black and white palette and non-artistic industrial materials embedded in the space of the canvas. These are no longer paintings, but not yet sculptures. Broken elements of antique style, baroque, gothic are conceptually associated with the wreckage of today's world, and visually refer us to eternity - archeology, making my works commentaries on it. The practice of mixed media transfers tension from the real world into art, where bridging the distance between them allows us to recreate a sense of wholeness. This is how I transform postmodern deconstructivism into harmonious constructivism, offering the viewer a new vision of the world with positive scenarios.
