Our guest - artist Ilya Armanovsky with his new cycle "Combat and femininity"
Let him have the floor:
For me, this artistic cycle represents one continuous artwork, expressing the joy of the youth, its sincerity and chastity. It is the incarnation of the beauty of the young female body, which perfectly shows its passion in a toe-to-toe combat against another beautiful female bosy. This cycle is a tribute to my own youth and its hopes and aspirations. It is an imagination of the archetype of my woman. After all, all this about myself because art always represents the artist and his incarnations. I would say, this cycle is about the Woman - a beautifyl lady which struggle is a conflict of opposites, my own internal struggle. In fact, my artworks are influenced by Ancient art and sculpture, even though I work in my own way.
Actually, I have been struggling with this topic. I gradually expanded the space of the internal freedom and eventually managed to fit this concept into that space. It is my most ingenuous and subjective art cycle, even though the tradition is visible in it. I am not a topical artist, I am an interpreter of what has created before!
I am recalling my first visit to Luvre. We had an exhibition in Paris and I thirsted for seing Ancient sculpture in Luvre. What an enjoyment. I couldn't help feeling a satisfaction - "I am right!" These artifacts which I love all my life confirmed that I was right!!
I have had two personal gallery exhibitions devoted to this topic. I got a lot of positive feedbacks.
These artworks are made using oil on canvas or acrylic on paper.
