Round composition V . I believe humankind has always sought some form of permanence, while at the same time being keenly aware that all of life is impermanent and nothing is fixed.
Ever changing, ever evolving into new forms, all of nature flows through its rhythms of change. Yet I revere that eternal moment of NOW, where we have the opportunity to grasp life's fullness and potential for beauty.
For several years now, the materials I use to paint are extracted colors from dried or fresh flowers and plants, spices, as well as natural minerals and stones. These materials are not local in origin, but rather come from various parts of the earth, and thus symbolically represent our global humanity. In some of my new work, in additional to the extracts previously mentioned, I've begun to use the actual dried or fresh petals and fragments of flowers. It was in the process of adhering these fresh elements that the fossil concept came to mind.
I love the idea that fossils are once living organisms that have been captured in time, and from our present perspective, permanently so. Here the shape of life, including its essences, feels indestructible. They are past NOWs frozen in time. From a philosophical perspective then, my work takes on the characteristics of future fossils that I have created to capture the vibrant, transient NOW.
Through the creative process my materials become co-creators of captured moments of my life that will endure beyond that moment. The fragility of my materials, such as flower petals, are just as fragile as my breath that sends my materials across the canvas, yet they gain strength and permanence as co-creators of the finished work of art. We become fossilized!

I added apples?? 🍎 kind of playing with the idea of Eve and original sin. The apple of knowledge, in this case, being a Corona or the first hit off a joint. Eve just wanted to know shit, man. I’m not sure what else to add because that beer bottle is the weird part of the circular composition. Maybe 🐍 SNAKES? .

«В серии портретов химерических зверей мы как будто сталкиваемся с наследием этнографической экспедиции, и довольно двусмысленным наследием — одновременно бесспорным и невозможным. Серия использует вышивальные пяльцы для традиционной живописной техники и соединяет черты двух иконографий — парадного портрета и наивной живописи».
Александр Евангели, куратор проекта.

In the series of portraits of chimerical animals, we seem to encounter the heritage of an ethnographic expedition, and quite an ambiguous heritage - both indisputable and improbable.
