“White Light”


10 – 31 October 2023


Thе exhibition is a kind of continuation of artist’s previous one at Rakursi Art Gallery in 2021 and is related to his personal study of color and its all-round impact. Immersing yourself in this vast subject, you gradually understand that it is an incredible and inexhaustible source of inspiration.
The “White Light” is related to artist’s personal study of color. Every culture has a different reading of the influence of colors. The common one is what we know as Newton’s spectrum. It is a small part of an infinite electromagnetic spectrum, in the range of which we are located and vibrate with the vibrations of electromagnetic waves in the parameter of white light. Goethe, for his part, emphasized the psychological influence of colors. They undoubtedly have their own expressiveness, symbolism and can directly affect the psyche. They are usually perceived associatively. Through the eyes, the perception of color reaches all the organs and causes tangible sensations. In the Western culture of which we are a part, colors are associated with human emotions.

“The use of a specific technique (epoxy resin) to isolate the painting layer is a special sought-after effect. This is a certain kind of “distance” between the viewer and the surface of the canvas. Just as light can be seen but cannot be touched.”
