Aleksandr Volanski

Saint-Petersburg

"The quintessence of his art is fundamental principles that permeate everything that allows us to look at what is happening outside the framework of human doing and translate it into the category of "non-doing", which makes it possible to shift the life events of observers to the next level."

In short

The artist began his career with street graffiti in 2005 and still uses streets to communicate with the environment. He uses knowledge about the influence of perception and perceived things as an instrumental component. He studies the principles of optical illusions, colors, shapes, neurophysiology and archetypal symbols. At the moment, he is actively exploring the field of art therapy.

Deeper

Volanski comprehends the material world in the concept of panpsychism and believes that any object is important in the general game. His new pieces are literally alive - this is an amazing mixture of moving compositions, built on the principles of optical illusions, special types of paint, as well as dynamic light sources.

Result

The artist’s inner circle regularly experiences the effects of his paintings and how they are embedded in the construct of their everyday life, thereby creating new vectors of cause and effect relationships. This enables buyers of paintings to avoid what could happen or vice versa to help coordinate the flow of perception, that is, lead to new actions and situations. Often paintings are symbols, the meaning of which is revealed after a certain time, especially when the acquisition takes place within the ordinary framework of the contemporary art market. His pieces are in private collections in Russia, Holland, Hungary, Austria, and Israel.

Dissenting opinion

«As I see it, my art is to become part of important subjective/objective processes, both for people and situations. It makes no difference to me whether my pieces go to the galleries or in the attic. The bottom line is that there is a purpose for each object, no matter how long the object is hidden. At the right moment, even the surviving piece of the picture will be able to show much more and play a more significant role for the person than the picture known to the whole world. This approach creates invaluable art and gives meaning to my work.»
