Look behind you! Seriously, please look behind you! Ok, thank you. Now you can look at the work again and/or at the text. The pair of powerful colored frame and black space is meant to lure and intrigue the viewer. The subject of this work is not simple and it is simple. One dimension is the observed universe of which we focus on our day by day life. We see the very well details, we experience it and we measure it all the time. The other dimension is the Hidden Universe, which we don’t know but we guess it’s existence, movement and vibration. It is not hidden because of some obscure reason - it is hidden because we don’t look at it long enough. Because of that everything is possible - good, bad or neutral. Because we lack data from observation the cat can be dead and alive in the same time. But we know there is a cat. It is like short look in a dark room which we know. You know there’s an armchair, you kind of see it’s lines and you fill the rest of of details from memory. Some data you add ar right, some not.
For an artist, this happens on daily basis. We focus so much on our creation and everything else fades. But just because we don’t observe the world around us and it becomes Hidden Universe it doesn’t mean it stops.
As a final observation, in different degrees this is true to all of us:
“When you think to take determination of your fate into your own hands, that is the moment you can be crushed. Be cautious. Allow for surprises. When we create, there are always other forces at work.
