Description of the artwork «Party with the Shadow»
I am very fascinated by the Shadow theme. And as world art shows, not just me. Andersen, Schwartz, Gogol, O. Wilde, Stevenson, Goethe, Hesse and the list is almost endless. All of them were inspired by the concept and meaning of the Shadow, the internal search and description of the complex personality structure. In world culture, the world is bipolar: the struggle of good and evil, light and shadow, day and night is indispensable ... Struggle, but also unity, complementarity and the impossibility of existence without each other is yin-yang. You can fight all your life with your shadow side, not recognize it and experience internal conflict. And you can realize, accept and find a way of peaceful interaction - not to overfeed, but not starve your inner Demon, your Wolf.
