  • Catalogue Essay

    The works of Rimma Gerlovina and Valeriy Gerlovin are dominated by the
    symbolism of the mythical and archaic, of the sign.They deconstruct a
    semiotic symbol through its visual decorative ornamentation.The sign as
    the initial element of a word and the word as the initial element of a sign are
    their favored, ambivalent paradox.The hieroglyph and sign, characteristic of
    the Gerlovins, give rise to an interesting interpretation of a “Renaissancestyle”
    approach combined with an “OldTestament” element.There is a play
    of sign and sense, sense and feeling, visual image and emotional element.
    They create visual images of hidden thoughts by the words of their
    “anthropomorphic” poetry.
