Mysterious Beast

Аcrylic/oil on carpet, 280х190 cm

My motivation to reject the white canvas has progressed into a sudden discovery of the carpet as a comprehensive artistic medium. The carpet already contains an individuality shaped by the visual ornament and the fleece texture. Images, colour, composition are already laid in the carpet, that gives it a self-sufficient integrity and identity. Because of this activity of the medium I found myself contesting with the carpet to reveal and express it's potential through paint. Similarly to the translation of the genetic material into that which forms life. I try to chanel the dynamics of subjective experiences through circulating paint on the static ornament. To create an exposition that is viewed from multiple perspectives, that morphs with light.
