White paintings

White paintings series was my first real intellectual effort to create a homogeneous universe using picture as a bearer of some aesthetic idea. I started to work on it in 2008 developing structural language of flat chromatic surfaces neighbouring in harmonious way and putting aside all true perspective or natural light creating volumes. My painting has become extremely smooth and quiet, almost cold and impersonal. The series I’ve explored all possibilities of graphic style inherited from expressionists and fauves in pop-art manner, exclusively was oriented to picturing of a body. The core of the series was made in Brussels between summer 2008 and spring 2009, but some later addition were made in Paris between fall 2009 and fall 2013.
