CONFERENCE. Painting exercises

13.11.14 - 15.11.14 | Spaces outside UBA

13 - 15th of November, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.

This exhibition is a kind of a review of my life in painting. Less ideological /conceptual/ as formal - the plastic part of my creative pursuits. The story, as it exists, is rather a function of the underlying my experiments with color, the texture, tone and psychological organization of suggestion and all other elements of the picture space. It is obvious my attachment to the so called “poetic reality", interpreted in my sensibility and temperament. Don’t look for discoveries. My excitement are directed inward rather than forward and upward.
