Description of the artwork «Gateway 1. From the series "Portals"»
A work from the Portals series, consisting of nine canvases, each of which has a size of 50x50 cm. In this series, I convey my sense of transition between linear, friable and changeable street space and chamber, static yard space. The arch, the gateway, the main entrance are similar to teleportation places, when you are transferred from the noisy and bustling world to a different environment, where the invisible spirit of the city is hidden. The courtyard, the front garden or, simply, the door or window of the house are those fragments of reality that have for me a certain multi-layeredness. At first, it is a form, light and light, almost in their abstract sense, then it is an image and associative series caused by it. Time stops here or starts to go backwards, as if projecting a story about someone's unknown life onto the walls.
