I often have dreams, but this one is the strangest in my life and has impressed me to the core. The beginning of sleep... I'm standing in the cab of a moving metal elevator in front of closed doors. Inside, there is a gray light, without a single hint of color. The elevator stops. The heavy doors begin to move slowly, revealing a scene that my mind has never seen before... The sky is orange with a soft ochre shade. An unearthly landscape. The warm clay-colored soil forms soft hills, ledges and cliffs that frame a huge depression in a circle like a volcano crater. I get out of the elevator on one of the upper ledges, look around and see that similar gray elevator boxes are standing in several places on the territory. The space around is filled with life, purple plants (or animals) shimmering with a golden glow, reflecting the light of the warm sky. The air is very dense, resembling a gel substance, which makes the movement of plants seem smooth and slow. I raise my eyes up and see a few of the heavenly bodies, apparently satellites of that planet, they are different in size and shape. I take out my camera, catching myself thinking that I'm about to capture this unreal alien landscape, I bring my eye to the lens, and it's empty, the camera does not capture what I see. I woke up abruptly, my body and mind in a kind of excited adrenaline state, and the feeling that I had just been thrown onto the bed from another world. The painting is painted in the technique of multi-layer painting with thin layers of oil paint, which allows you to create a three-dimensional volume and the glow of the lower layers of paint through the transparent upper layers. Work on the painting took several weeks to achieve complete drying and strengthening of each previous layer. The sides of the picture are the continuation of the image, so you do not need to place the picture in a frame. Made on high-quality canvas (100% cotton), canvas density 380 gr / meter, stretched on a high quality wooden stretcher frame. Used the best Russian oil paints produced in Russia, the city of St. Petersburg. Size: 43,3*43,3*0,79 inches 110*110*2 cm I did not attach the hangers on the back side, and I will attach them to the package. The painting is accompanied by a certificate of copyright issued in Russia by the city of St. Petersburg.
The artist shows the audience something unique that was noticed by him in a short moment in the vast time of his life. I am not an exception - I am a part of the world of artists, and therefore I constantly look at life either through a microscope or through a telescope. I am looking for exceptional and unique manifestations of reality in the smallest forms of the nature surrounding me. I am looking for clues inside the process of meditation, which is an important part of my life. I am looking for answers about the purpose of being, studying the ancient science of Astrology and applying its laws to my own Path on Earth. But words are too stingy to describe it, so I chose my own language – the language of canvas and oil paints. I know that I am on the right track. I am sure of it, because I am enjoying every moment of time I have spent, creating a new artwork. At these moments I talk to my inner self, and this conversation can last for hours. My work is not a static picture, it is a meditative rhythm, it is a flow of life, it is an experience that will open up to you in a new way every time. Perhaps you will solve this riddle, perhaps my stories will forever remain a mystery to you. But only one thing is important – you will be happy alone with my paintings that will decorate your home.
