It’s Quiet On The Surface
When I create, I encourage images to appear from my subconscious using the interaction of spiritual meditation and art materials.
My painting, “It’s Quiet On the Surface,” reflects the ever changing colors of the Pacific Ocean and the sky above it, reminding us there is something else besides this physical world, returning us to a memory of our real home: the realm of a soul.
It also reflects the material world around us. On the left part of the canvas I incorporated graffiti scribbles by transferring them into a corral tree. Buddhist believe that we can not see the events in our life clearly if our perception of the world is blurred by our emotions. The bottom part of the painting has a lot of movement and noise, as our life sometimes has, but the surface of the ocean is peaceful, presenting a meditative state of the mind.
Born in the remote mountains of central Asia, I grew up in Ukraine and studied art in Russia. Since I emigrated to the United States in 1993, my art has caught the attention of art lovers and gained recognition from prestigious art jurors. My collages and paintings have been featured in more than 50 solo and group shows.
