  • Catalogue Essay

    "This picture is dedicated to the world‐famous sculpture of Robert Indiana "LOVE". Also this composition refers to the creative series "Human‐Alien", which includes sculptures and paintings and performances. In one of the paintings on this theme "All for VITA" I stylized the letters of the Latin alphabet into multi‐figures compositions. The letters took on a symbolic form. In the painting "LOVE" I used the letters from the picture "All for VITA". This magic word is at the peak of relevance for us. Perhaps as relevant as it was for America during the Vietnam War. These were the times of hippies and active social position in the struggle for peace throughout the world. Our country is currently experiencing similar social metamorphosis.

    This positive magic spell is understandable in all corners of the planet."
