Oil on canvas
The Beginning – first painting in a series started in 2012. It is devoted to interaction between man and woman. Two faces symbolize two individual personalities, each of which has its own views, beliefs, and feelings. Their opposite location indicates readiness for a dialogue, understanding and mutual perception. Rich geometry and exact precision of the painting symbolizes complexity and catholicity of the inner worlds. First idea appearing between them is a tacpoint and it is the beginning of everything that further is found out to be diversity of the world. First tears, unexpected surprise, sincere rapture blend with cosmic seas and boundless spaces, ancient symbols and initial emblems.
The painting is an art experiment. It is the most important work among paintings that will be included to the series and is rightly considered the central image. Art improvisation, naturalness of technique and color play – this canvas didn’t know any restrictions, frameworks or stereotypes. What was planned to be an art provocation found out to be the perfect painting and astonished even the artist himself.
I approached selection of frame extremely pretentiously as the ready picture required special attitude. Each detail of the molding was carefully thought over and drawn before being embodied in wood. The frame became an important element of the painting and organically supplemented it.
