Chaos and Aesthetics. Ihor Kolisnyk. 31.05 – 26.06.2022
Since the beginning of the war, a lot of artists have reflected through the process of creating art. Despite the intolerance of the situation that is the reason for creativity, most of them still formally follow the dogmas of visual aesthetics, not anti-aesthetics. How can it be possible?
The most incredible works of art are often the plot of the most tragic pages of human existence. This process perhaps can be possible due to the purity of experiences.
There is no space for half-feelings. Wickedness and goodness are manifested. The greatest values of human existence become clear and distinct.
At the beginning of the war Igor Kolisnyk created a new series of works. War causes chaos. Igor reflects it by changing the ground with the sky in places, turning the flag upside down. Every occurrence that happens around us breaks the logic of life, breaks its flow. Everything happens wrong and out of time. It causes confusion and emotional shock. However, the artist sublimates it into aesthetics. The process of creativity does not stop. Life is beautiful while it continues.
