About The Artwork

Yurii Yermolenko, "Temenos of Tyche", 2019, archival pigment print, 120 x 89 cm. The concept of temenos arose in classical antiquity as an area reserved for worship of the gods. Some authors have used the term to apply to a sacred grove of trees, isolated from everyday living spaces, while other usage points to areas within ancient urban development that are parts of sanctuaries. A temenos is often physically marked by a peribolos fence or wall (e.g. Delphi) as a structural boundary. Originally the peribolos was often just a set of marker stones demarcating the boundary, or a light fence, and the earliest sanctuaries appear to have begun as a peribolos around a sacred grove, spring, cave or other feature, with an altar but no temple or cult image. A temenos enclosed a sacred space called a hieron; all things inside of this area belonged to the god. Greeks could find asylum within a sanctuary and be under the protection of the deity and could not be moved against their will. C. G. Jung relates the temenos to the spellbinding or magic circle, which acts as a 'square space' or 'safe spot' where mental 'work' can take place. This temenos resembles among others a 'symmetrical rose garden with a fountain in the middle' (the 'squared circle') in which an encounter with the unconscious can be had and where these unconscious contents can safely be brought into the light of consciousness.

Yurii Yermolenko – A Master of Fine Arts (MFA), author of special, large-scale, monumental picturesque projects, set designer, art director (musical video), music video director, photographer, Facevinyl & RapanStudio Founder and CEO. Born in 1973 Kiev (Ukraine) Lives and works in Kiev. "LIVE PAINTING" One will never forget works painted by artist Yurii Yermolenko. They carry a rave of color, flexibility of motifs, and a very special reality. - Yurii, how long have you been living for painting? Creation of a painting, the plot, the canvas – is this an outburst of emotions, or reflection of your world outlook? - I believe that I began to live for painting even before I was born. The birth of a painting on canvass most of all resembles a rite, when you are led by some creative ecstasy, intuition. It should be noted however that the period preceding the creation of a painting is very interesting. Here, an entirely different scheme works, involving a great deal of analysis, collection of information, anthropological studies, maybe, travelling. - Your paintings are distinguished for intense colors. Does this reflect your temper, or the desire to add colors to everyday routine? - In the first place, it reflects my temper of an artist and a painter. When you paint a picture, it should sound in colors, as a good musical composition, this is the main thing. - You have a unique technique of execution – the images are smudgy and distinct at a time. What stands behind it? - I like it when a painting represents a deep picturesque space, full of special light, as if in a dream, in which, images can breathe and vibrate. - Who, or what, inspires you? - My dear muse, my angel of inspiration protects and helps me. And as far as the projects are concerned, they may be triggered by a beautiful dream or a journey. - What really encourages you – criticism, or commendation? - I am encouraged not by criticism or commendation, but by angels of inspiration. Criticism or commendation take place post factum, as a response to a work of art; both are helpful; the worst thing is when there is no response at all. - Please, tell us about your creative plans. - I will continue experimenting with techniques. By the way, my another project was a pure experiment with "flower-dotted" fabric – this decorative pattern dictates the figurative space. MAGIC WOMAN magazine, Culture (section)
