Serhiy Dekaliuk “Almost spring”. 14 February – 12 March, 2023
At the exhibition of the artist from Zbarazh, there will be a premiere of paintings created during this year.
As Serhii says: “Every time I worked, I assured myself that people in my country had changed, become better, stronger, and became ready for anything for the sake of victory. Works that were created during a period loaded with difficult events are united by the belief in victory. In the spring, which will surely come.
It would be unfair on my part to paint a picture of war, because I am in a relatively quiet place and, fortunately, I did not hear anything more terrible than air raid sirens. I set myself the task of creating at least one work per a week. At the heart of my abstract creativity is a reference to people – to be free. In my opinion, everyone knows how to do it – you need to renounce “yesterday’s self” and move forward.
My canvases have large formats, smooth lines, and bright spots. It is written in an expressive manner on a canvas that is not completely painted and “breathes freely”, serving only as a hint of the path to liberation and freedom. At least for me.”

Entrance to the exhibition is free.
The Green sofa gallery schedule: 12-7 p.m., except Monday.
