The main theme in the artworks of Oleksandr Rachytskyi is the city. The whole series are dedicated to Venice, its main streets with cathedrals and palazzo, numerous canals and streets. These artworks are united by a very bright color spectrum, built on a combination of blue-violet and red-orange tones with small patches of other colors. This color scale is traced from artwork to artwork and undoubtedly manifests itself as an artist’s own recognizable style and expressionism. All expression in the artworks is enclosed in color, its combinations, modulations, flowing into each other. This live color environment fills perfectly homogeneous static facades of houses, entryways and water channels. Interestingly, the streets in the paintings are completely deserted, the city is one-on-one with itself, and the only thing it has is this wandering through the streets changeable light.

Oleksandr paints with bright acrylic, which creates an effect that differs from the oil paints technique. The artist masters the acrylic paints technique, creating a mosaic of pure specks and soft merging of colors, as in watercolor.

In some urban panoramas, Oleksandr creates more complex unexpected textures, mainly in the work on the sky, making it phantasmagoric.

The artworks of Oleksandr Rachytskyi poured on the canvas as frozen music of a bright, dynamic experimenter-musician, an improviser, who calmed down in refined harmony. And here words and sounds are no longer needed, but the bright colors settled, having agreed among themselves, without losing their expression and light.

The colorful play of bright color bursts resembles the living breath of the northern lights, now disappearing, now flashing again with a new life. And although the artist's paintings are limited to one theme of the city of Venice, the viewer sees this and does not see it, so bright, organic and unique image is presented to us.

The artworks are good in the interior, when you can always be in the aura of the composition, even without looking at it or seeing it with side vision. And even after watching, being in another place, you can keep in yourself the impression of this almost childlike freedom and playfulness. And the result of such a game is the acquisition of a new rich and vivid harmony, which is akin to living wisdom.
