"When I realized and crossed the doorstep of pain and resentment, I understood that relatives are only light and I can re-create them into painting with nothing but love."
everything is instant
everything is eternity
everything is entropy
ETERNITY=INSTANT IN ∞
The painting of «Time» began with the awakening of my childhood memories, related to events and times, moments, that I co-experienced through painting. In the beginning I would hit the brush on the canvas with fury, damaging it and sometimes I painted the canvas mixing the oil paint with my tears.
«Shifting the stones» of my childhood memories, was painful. But only up to a certain point… When I started painting the portraits in close-up and had to look in detail into the eyes of relatives, into the creases and wrinkles, into their chiaroscuros... At this point I realized that I no longer feel resentment towards them. To me they became light. And this internal light that their faces emanated, began to resonate within me and it warmed me.
In the process of the creation of the series «TIME» I painted, reliving the memory through painting and sometimes I did not paint but merely sat and existed... And most of all I was feeling, and when I made the last painting «By the death Bed» I put it in the middle of the wall, and the rest were surrounding it... And they all began to vibrate... And at that instant happened the INSTANT.
WITHOUT WORDS I REALIZED THE INSTANT
and I understood that this is the essence of the project - THE INSTANT IS IN ETERNITY AND ETERNITY IS IN THE INSTANT.
Each of the 131 paintings is a vibration of a INSTANT, which is a pulsating picturesque flash, that sinks into ETERNITY.
