“Paintings made with such technique have a very volumetric light, the illusion of volume and presence is incredible. Now comes the secret. The light pierces the canvas and reflects from the wall where the painting is hanging and lights the canvas from inside. As the shadow areas have the most transparent layer it glows the most. In real life our eye tunes the aperture when you moving the sight from light to shadow so we can notice a lot of details in very dark shadows and we can see a lot of details in very light areas when we stop our sight there. Without such technique our eye see the painting as a simple 2D object. With such effect moving your sight through the composition gives you an illusion of 3D objects as the aperture of the eye needs to tune to different objects in the picture.” – interview for Figure painter magazine.
“My conception is that after the work is finished and being published or exhibited the observer/audience takes part in the creative process. You are trying to express something without words – that what visual art is. People catch those emotions and feelings but associate them with their own life experience. They catch some ideas but also connect them with something they already have in their minds. And they fulfill the artwork even more. The artist/creator of the artwork can have own opinion and meanings but I am sure that his opinion is not more important than others. And even more I am sure that artist can comprehend himself by knowing the opinion of different people about his artwork. There is definitely something metaphysical here.” – interview for Figure painter magazine.
“As I know it is not so well in gallery business now. The modern technologies and fast rhythm of our life have its influence. People watch hundreds of pictures on their screens every day and they have no time to visit exhibitions. That’s why the interactive art forms become more popular in galleries, when the visitors become the part of the art. But it is pretty hard to sell traditional paintings in the gallery for the example than even to sell it or to make some useful connections with internet. The exhibitions are stopping to be the best place to promote traditional art and there is something to think about. But nevertheless I like to talk to different people on such events, to discuss different stuff with another artists and to hear some positive feedback that inspires me and making me feel useful. I think that feeling myself useful, knowing that I made people to think on philosophical themes, knowing that I have inspired someone and gave some positive emotions is very important for me. It is like you are making this world a little bit better.” – interview for Jason Martin.
