Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“In a portrait of a person, you can see everything about the internal and everything about the external, in it you can catch emotional and psychological contradictions, connection with the world and other people.”

Revealing the hidden – that is the real duty of any artist. He breaks through visible phenomena to the essence of things that cannot be spoken about in words, he speaks about sensuality by using the sensory language, he is a conductor that allows you to establish a connection between the world of everyday life and the ideal world. The creative process is always an internal strain of the artist's soul, it is his sacrifice in order to break through and show what is inaccessible to the eye.

The work of "Épilogue" was in progress from 01/22/2020 to 05/09/2021. The picture is definitely symbolic, reflecting the unconscious that guides a person throughout his life. This is a picture of internal transformations and changes, where the subject acts as an active participant in his own life, and as a passive spectator, observing the internal movements of the soul, reflecting, evaluating the subject. These are mirrors of one personality, endlessly reflecting themselves.

Only the artist is able to go through mystical awe and horror in order to show the whole world his own (the world’s one) hidden horror. This is not a negative feeling of fear, it is a feeling of a certain ‘something’ that defies explanation, ‘something’ that one day each of us finds in himself, something that each of us encounters on his way of knowing and communicating with himself, others and the world.

Rêve : Cría cuervos

Acrylic

$666

This picture opens the cycle of works "Rêves", depicting the symbolism of dreams, the central symbol of this artwork is a raven, a harbinger of changes in the artist's interpretation.

The artist makes visible what hastily escapes us. Only the artist is able to reveal and show in the most honest and sometimes unsightly form the naked soul of a person, with all its weaknesses, wounds, worries, and at the same time with genuine crystal-clear beauty.

“The artist is able to show what intuitively we feel in another or in ourselves.”

The artist's style is his way of speaking with the world, the connection of understanding is established between the picture and the viewer through the tools used by the author - colors, chiaroscuro and composition. An artist's handwriting is like a person's character. Just as we, knowing a person, strive to communicate with him, because we expect from him a certain type of response, opinion or reaction, so we recognize an artist by the way he establishes contact with us. In addition, the act of creation is also an attempt by the artist himself to grasp his own vision, to fix what he saw from the inside, reflected in the subject of the image.

“The artist's works are so impressive because they echo in the souls of other people, find their reflection there, as if in a mirror, and at the same time make ‘something’ that eludes our vision to linger for a while. The artist's work is the dry residue of the life of any person, and therefore of a Person in general.”

The artist saves his own and someone else's memory by freezing on the canvas what needs to be preserved, it is like an endless return to the origins of an endless nostalgic feeling, without beginning and end, for what could never have happened, for what might even be to us unfamiliar. As a result, creativity and contemplation is also a path to knowledge.
