art and research project

LEAD-UPS and preparatory

Artist relocated himself for one year to Balian (village in the West-North of Bali island, Indonesia). Separated from social life and being apart from internet connection, media and daily routine. Ocean, forest and house became all in one studio, where 5 ‘origins’ oil painting were created.

Research of nature and finding 5 origins was made, elements which our planet owes besides us, their purpose and influence on people. How we act towards our origins and where are they in us.

Principle of synesthesia was used while creating paintings involving music to enhance the action of art towards the viewer, outperforming the idea in a specific way. Improvement of absorption of art with context of organisational behaviour, where sound accompanied in specific colour tone combinations.

Gravity and Aqua paintings were created following Valentin Afanasieff "Color hearing" and intuitive search theory where the artist was choosing color tone of his work based on the rules of synopsy and set sound and color principle.

Water is an origin and base of our inner reactions. Resonance and birthplace of voices. Once we’ve stared these voices words met each other, opinions appeared, provoke debates on differences of feelings.

Fire was created by us to share the warmth, bring love, burn and recharge. Instead we’ve just burned our passions, created anger and lust for power.

Doubts appeared. We are now scared, driven by fear and stress.

Physical and mental mining.

Divorcing layers of informational garbage to get back to inner voice.

None of the mirrors are left to represent our day. It is much easier now to be a part but not apart. People speak freedom without experiencing it because of an image and fashion of life. Main interests are in facts, statements but not in process.

We are surrounded by lots of powerful tools, smart and intelligent things, and awareness of them made us accept them as toys. Human being is in need to be unique that intense so there is no ‘self’ in ourselves anymore. All about belonging to things and creations, not ‘a-like’ groups, communes on interests, but never to nature and our origins. We don’t say anymore: I’m a river, i am the sky. We are: storytellers, cool things lovers, sport junkies, promoters, etc. Shame of simpleness ate our original desires, forwarded them into endless discussions and informational dirt.

A kid, a pure soul, speaking himself rough and honest. No shame and curiosity. All his life after he will learn and hear things, growing a big hard shell over him. Once he is finally lost he will try to escape from this shell. It will be a challenge because of the fear to leave. But fear doesn’t last long. It is all about process of to getting to some things back. ‘Rewind learning’ which is already in us because you are just leaving the things you already know.

The moment,
the place and the skill
of your inner voice.
Yourself origin.
