Using the word "ukrainian" feels like using a brand that's not really mine. The fact that I am residing in Kiev or that you are wherever you are does not provide for a label or another mistaken identity for neither of us. Made in Ukraine - that is a factual statement for me and my art.
So we're not going to substitute sugar with Sweet'n'low. We went over that years ago and it all went to hell. So now what?
I leave you in a shrine of contemplation and meditation, introspection and conclusiveness; in the shrine, where the great demons look at you from the digital walls with a quantum spin of spooky action at a distance, because on paper they are in front of my face, when you mind travel to a story tied to the virtually projected NFT in front of your eyes. Time travelling art defying borders, nations, currencies and control.
Now. Anywhere. Instantaneous.
And in the interplay of time and paper there is always a choice in art. To redraw and build what existed or to create something that you haven't yet seen or imagined, ever. Yet in the end there is always a balance, because you were born, you've seen it and you died. And in retrospective you don't even know what came first.
On Paper is a show that is beyond time. It is an ongoing personal exhibition of ever more permanent digital assets, one of a kind NFT collection. Contemporary and conceptually complete artworks embedded into the fabric of space and time. Initially it was just a line on paper. Each one is.
And there are twenty works in this vernissage edition art gallery with a blockchain enabled, ethereum fueled, token agnostic, technology driven, freshly implemented, highly interesting, intrinsically balanced, sense filled, visually stunning display.
