Vibrations of Verkhovyna
Korydor gallery, Uzhgorod

"Vibrations of Verhovyna project is a vibration in Uzhgorod, Ivano-Frankivsk, or some other city, other time and space ... Conceived as an extension of the Idea that is Felt project shown in Detenpyla gallery, this spatial object adresses the possibility to experience a thought through color and found object that is the room itself. It provokes a particular emotional state associated with sense that has a though in its core."

Labor and Love

Object-installation "Labor and Love" consists of three parts: "Rhythm", "Rake" and "Rule".

Minimalist visual language is combined with straight image of craft items (found objects)

Memory performance can be seen as a sort of Ryaska’s commentary to his practice of painting, a step towards combining his favorite familiar work with challenges of new medium which is becoming increasingly popular within the artistic community of Western Ukraine. Experience and sense of the painting-oriented artist are reinterpreted in the Memory through performativity and direct involvement of primary elements of painting into live action. Colored pigment becomes more than a mere technical alienated tool for visualizing image on the canvas, but rather a matter-on-its-own releasing their immediate visual and tactile properties.

The Idea That is Felt

An important aspect of the project is an artist’s intention to rethink his own long-term painting practice, an attempt to use color outside the picturial surface and to move his non-figurative experiments into the total spacial field. Together with following project Vibration of Verhovyny "in the" opinion ... " artist develops the idea of ​​working with the space-as-an-object.
