*Madonna with Child


                                                   *Madonna with Child*
                                                   acrylic, canvas,  2018


     25 years ago, Ukraine started the long process of decommunization–to purge the vestiges of its Soviet past. However many statues are toppled, streets and cities renamed (such as my hometown), or parties outlawed, the effects of a 70-year history are not so easily erased. Using photo negatives found in a Soviet archive, this instillation is an homage to the Kiev-born Kazimir Malevich, himself at times a victim of Soviet oppression, and his futurist Black Square. Negative Square represents an effort not to look away from the past, but directly into and through it. For the [Soviet] world may die, but for us there is no end.

"Fragmentum Continua" Exhibition 2016

   I see art as the bridge to the subconscious. As an artist, I want to shed the layers of the imprints and attitudes imposed upon us by our developed matrix of perception, and explore how deep this process can go. Of course, such an endeavor yields a variety of results. My goal is produce works that pierce through those layers–through rational consciousness. The resultant creation does not derive meaning from itself, but because it is a fragment of a dialogue and a dialogic fragment engaging with the now.
