  • Catalogue Essay

    In his TV series, Chuikov creates a conflict between the pictorial fiction - and the brutality of the reality, i.e. plastic TV box, that “frames” the painting, the “pictorial.” He uses eclectic method of artistic expression to deliver his ideas. His work, at first glance, look like amorphous mixture of the method, semantics, subject and image. He offers the pictorial not as characteristic illusion, but as unrefined, anti-illusory, non-transparent film, using the combination of different styles, or rather of different techniques: graphic, pictorial, drafting, and of a poster.
