  • Catalogue Essay

    Being an artist, Maxim Mamsikov is mostly interested in the ordinary life. However, the genre nature in his interpretation does not really mean the simple truth. His painting rather fits the recent fad—sortof a ‘post media realism', that is based on the mechanism of paradoxical psychological compensation—the further away from reality, the more persistently you hang on its look-alikes... (ed. Collection Gallery, A. Soloviov, Bloomsday '08 Ideal Century, Kiev, 2008, p. 52)
