Exhibition of painting by Sergey Oleksiuk
09/21 - 09/30/2019
On September 21 at 17-00 we open an exhibition of painting by Sergey Oleksiuk.
The artist writes his paintings-impressions from Santorini's life as if by "white noise" ... You can imagine how he absorbs it from space, densely mixes in paint, and so this noise settles on the canvas ... the artist repeats as if the ritual, the action of the Santorini builders themselves ... the white noise controllers. This is how the meditative impressions of Santorini depicted by Sergiy Oleksiuk in painting are described.
