SYNERGISM AS A NEW ART METHOD
I am working on the development of a new perspective in the category of Fine Art. By examining and dissecting different types of objects. I am creating base-relief compositions, and employing a combination of traditional art methods such as drawing, sculpture, painting, and collage to bring unique works of art into being. The best way to describe the character of my craft is the word “Synergism;” when the sum of the whole created system in the art image is greater than the sum of its separate parts. In this case, by combining several conventional fine art mediums I am creating new art objects with complexity of texture and chromatic harmony in some paintings/reliefs and a monochromatic approach in other works.
Using everyday household items I am exploring their ambiguous meaning, creating an abstract relief on the canvas surface and destroying all recognizable and semantic meaning of the individual elements in a mosaic-like composition. I am producing a print of the object in the painting, while simultaneously infusing the painting with sculptural elements; eliminating the gap between painting, sculpture, and drawing. Traditional figurative forms are used only asa starting point for the creation of new art objects; a new harmony arises from discord and dissonance between different parts of the image.
At the junction of the composition there is a natural merger of three directions of the Conceptual Art, Pop Art, and Minimalism. Working in cross-disciplinary practice I am creating over the past two decades works that exists at the intersection of painting, drawing and sculpture.
