The series of works “Time record” is my monologue and, at the same time, silence – the silence in which memory disappears.
It is an automatic countdown to forget.
It touches the topic of Time as a post-traumatic reaction on the political situation in my native country (after 2014) –
I was born in Crimea (Ukraine). I am observing my own psychological time (after culture trauma) creating records of time.
The brush trace – a point – not based on anything, suspended in the space of the canvas, has become for me the beginning and the foundation of my work, the transition from non-being to being, a time segment. As a basis, point is invariably present.
It is considered to be an initial element of the world and every mass present on it.
The point is the basis and centre of gravity of all substances (the nucleus of any atom, body organ, organization). The point is also a medium of information, multiplied – it creates a larger unity.
I collected them in intervals of work, large spots were created, and then, growing, they covered the whole area of the canvas.
They had alternating energy in them - in a sense, they created a map of energy, a map of psychological time, referring to space.
