The basis of my art is always a realistic image of reality, in which there is a slight, sometimes barely noticeable deviation - fiction, subconscious. This is an element of personal experience of reality and the semantic center of the picture.
Before me is not worth the goal to change the world beyond recognition or destroy it. The main interest is a slight change in reality, but a change that reveals the layer of the mechanisms of this world that are invisible on the surface. Changes in the environment by a person, symptoms of a person that indirectly indicate its existence.
In the pictures of recent years, I can single out a few of the most characteristic features of my work - a figurative image, animation of the inanimate, the formation of an optically correct space (in terms of perception by the human eye), an empty space in which the human presence is read his livelihoods.
Orbital station “Mir” was flooded in the Pacific Ocean on March 23, 2001. The Russian Government has expressed some official reasons for the decision - and this is the end of the lifetime of the plant, constant crashes and, of course, its costly maintenance. In the Russian society, the flooding of the station was associated with the end of the space program, which had been a source of pride for several decades, the collapse of great hopes and the loss of the highest ideological sentiment.
The ocean, which absorbed the grandiose construction of human thought, appears as a mini universe in which everything is born and in which everything ends. Like the legendary Platonic Atlantis, “Mir” was at the bottom of the ocean, went into an idealized past, became the subject of myth-making by contemporary writers and historians. Turned to the next point on the historical time scale, after which we note the loss of the "empire" the dominant positions in the exploration of outer space and the main spheres of influence in world politics.
The name of the orbital station becomes a bright symbol - the flooding of the “Mir”, the world, the peace - like the final breakdown of relations between major powers. This is no longer a local history of a particular country. The peace now repose on the ocean floor.
