No new thing under the sun

My work is about patterns in the world around us, finding abstractions in the complex and complexity in the apparently simple, and about repetition/universality and singularity/now. 

 

I grew up on the edge of the Eurasian steppe, where my first views of the world were of the dome of the sky, the curving yet level horizon and the flatness of the desert. At art school in Moscow and living in Asia, I have studied cave paintings, icons, the Russian realist painters and the Asian landscape tradition, and my work is another manifestation of their truth: that representation is always multi-layered, incomplete but in its own way having meaning.  

 

At the same time, I love the physicality of technique, from mosaic to painting to film and the new world of electronic images, I am always exploring new methods to address the age-old questions of art and of life as expressed by art.

 

The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after. - Ecclesiastes 1:6
