«...it's better to be good than original». Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

There cannot be the any statement about these landscape that are completely true including mine. The point is that these works should not give the viewer any senses or messeges. If there is any sense in them it locates in a deep nonextractable position. These are ideal matrixes with the help of which the spectator generates (or ignores) thoughts, states, moods or something else. 

Of course, the landscape is one of the most convenient genres to make matrixes. It is a genre where text and abstraction, contemplation, which stays beyond the name of the genre, wide range of type easily coexist with each other. 

It is well known that  Anton Chekhov derived a formula of the ideal: «Everything should be beautiful in a person: face, clothes, soul and thougts». Full neglect of the first three points in favour of the last one is named as contemporary art in today's Moscow. While making an ideal artwork it required to keep in mind all the route that humanity made working on this product: starting from cave paintings to abstractionism, conceptualism or computer wallpapers. «You can become a communist only when you enrich your memory with the knowledge of all the treasures that humanity produced». Vladimir Lenin.

A synthesis of the aesthetic experience, quintessence, pictograming, bringing to the banality as a method of delivering a true abstract of each specific name of the landscape, each work claims to become a standart of the ideal, without neglecting all the complexity, contradictions and paradoxes of creating a painting so called «work of art».
