 oil paintings

I am interested in portraying human consciousness as a separate system interacting with the surrounding reality. Of course, individuality is formed under the influence of the external world, but the inner world of a person is always much more multifaceted than what formed it. Why is this happening?

I invite the viewer to step back and take an impartial look at the most interesting thing - at the border between these worlds, at how information from one world gets into another, and how it is distorted on its way. My goal is to capture the moments in our life in which the border between the inner and the outer is most noticeable.

The main characters of my paintings are caught in a moment of absolute silence, when reality around them crumbles into a geometric pattern, and the entire space surrounding them becomes a flat abstraction, revealing images of their inner world.

silkprint

 silkprint

Silk printing or screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.

All of my prints are printed in PiranesiLab (Moscow).

generative art

 generative art

Generative art refers to art that in whole or in part has been created with the use of an autonomous system or some kind of pre-defined algorythms. An autonomous system in this context is generally one that is non-human and can independently determine features of an artwork that would otherwise require decisions made directly by the artist.

In most of my works I use Processing. It's a flexible software sketchbook within the context of the visual arts.
