Information
About myself and my artworks

The subject for Denys Horodnychyi's paintings are Ukrainian landscapes.

The most interesting thing for the artist is to express different states of nature, its mood. Creativity for him is a constant search and experiment, trying to create something new and unique.

Looking at Denys Horodnychyi's landscapes, you are instantly imbued with the beauty of the sealed moment and the frankness with which the author presents a small miracle of nature to the viewer, whether it is the frank red flashes of the sunset, the soft fading evening, the sea shimmering with sunlight, or huge clouds like towers, floating in the middle of the plains.

All this, once seen, re-emerges with new strength in memory and warms the soul, immerse you in serenity and exultation. There is nothing more real, eternal and valuable on earth than these wonderful moments, this divine love, poured everywhere and resonating in our hearts.

The way the author select lots for his canvases, gives out in him a subtly feeling nature, a demanding master. A simple story "Earth and Sky" Denys turns into an epic story, where there is an active interaction between the majestic tranquility of a blossoming field and a huge cloud rising up. The artist paints the air  with light transparent strokes, stretch marks and gradations of color halftones. You feel the bottomless depth of the midday sky, the rapid movement of soft clouds. In opposition to them - the earth is painted pasty with dense layers, and herbs with voluminous colorful strokes.

The ability of the artist to find a wonderful harmony in simple things built on the difference between rhythms and textures, a complex contrast, reveals his craftsmanship. And also the ability to highlight the main thing, as, for example, in the painting "Warm September", where on the dark background of night silveres a thin path of the river and the moon hides in the light veil of clouds. The deep night landscape is depicted broadly and minimally, but the moonlight streaming through the clouds is drawn more carefully with a fine brush, using a whole gradation of light colors. Such painting is typical for all works of Denys Horodnychyi.

Compositions, often, are built on unusual foreshortenings, on the overestimated or understated lines of the horizon, on the intricacy of cozy small corners of nature. And the color palette of the artist, as if filled with light, and always built on transparent clear colors, with a predominance of warm colors. Collected in generalized color spots, they look whole on the canvas.

Denys Horodnychyi is a painter-realist, and at the same time a real lyricist. I want to draw a parallel with another outstanding artist - Vasyl Hurin, who also masterfully transmits complex coloristic conditions of nature.
