About my artwork
World reaches to man across light mainly. With every day we larger weight apply to technological light of screens, than to sunny light. Both the screens of imagination, as and the technological screens cover us to this degree our existence, that we used to identify with only existing form of existence the projection. One meddle from second, the stereotypes create the, mediumistic creations, of icon of culture, politicians, simulacres... We reduce to light world and light becomes with essence of world.

The world is for emanation of light the background, screen our life and the part of answer on question about our identity. Our, devoid material essence, internal light is second part of this answer but existing, drawing different background and different world, on internal screen. It is then opposition between aesthetics found footage, and aesthetics closed - eye - vision.

It was can say that the video as medium is suitable to spining on subject of identity the reflection ideally, because the paintings of video unbutton between aesthetized with space of medias and the texts of culture, between internal visions – the clean abstraction of feelings and the states of mind, and the completely new quality for present art, what is the aesthetics the home of video.

It is the mirror the present day which portrays emotional shape and spiritual, the aesthetics, and also the approach to matters of corporeality of, privacy, family surroundings. Video penetrates reality very exactly, and every painting grows to rank of symbol simultaneously. Present video is so also acting visible medium this, what visible it earlier was not, as and keeping medium visible. It demands from us complement visible about our own experiences of world; the formulation of world in frame, the conferment of sense and the context. Author's works becomes devoid interpretation very often. Arranged in project from naked paintings, hardly preened up with necessary subjectivity of statement, completed only by recepient theoretically on own responsibility. Practically however the democracy of present art gives us the choice of option in grounds of system always.
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
