Each item has a soul, each flower is the universe painting to us. And we must feel and comprehend it. This is our mission, this is life, this is painting. And still painting - in the understatement.
Ukrainian artist invites the viewer to co-participate - to think out, to feel sympathy, to inspect, involving in the creative process, to become a full-fledged co-creator. The artist does not bring the work to photographism - it is only necessary to hint and be able to stop in time.
This is the refinement of painting - because photography is a documentary fixation, painting is an optical illusion, a paradox of near and far vision, a miracle of turning color into meaning. Painting is a message brought by the artist to the audience, by the audience to the artist. The message requires its co-author-addressee.
