MULTIDIMENSIONS

Art by Luba Sterlikova (USA) and Valera Martynchik (UK)

July 10- August 4, 2014

The exhibit is featuring paintings, sculpture, video and interactive installations.

Exhibit Curator - Vitaly Patsyukov

The concept of multidimensionality derives from contemporary physics while at the same time being widely employed in the imagery of avant-garde culture. This concept carries both the opposition and the unity of artistic and connotative coordinates and contains a veritable multidimensional universe of the kind which has always been a dream for alternative art and in which the latest scientific technologies are now immersed.

The art of the participants in this project Luba Sterlikova and Valera Martynchik is associated with the intersection points where image and concept meet in the context of visual and conceptual field. The strategies of these artists have long been engaged in a friendly creative dialogue thus developing a new artistic system which is in keeping with the principles of “surplus element” declared by Albert Einstein and Kazimir Malevich back in the early 20th century.

 For Martynchik multidimensionality means not only a certain state of the art world but also a presence of surplus forms produced by our civilization obeying the constantly multiplying world of consumer goods.

The highly visual art of Luba Sterlikova is focused on so-called cosmological “events” and a search for their “horizons”, to use a term from modern physics, to establish their energy levels and inter-relationships.

 The artists of the “Multidimensions” project are primarily concerned with the phenomenon of “super-personal” energies and strive to visualize the apparently inexpressible situations by combining in their technique both sensual and intellectual instrumentality.

 This variability of the methods employed by Luba Sterlikova and Valera Martynchik and the new optics and new reality born as a result of their creative experiments allow us to designate their artistic trend as “multidimensionality”.

 The exhibit is presented by the Inspired by Russia Art Project.

Opening Reception – July 10,2014 at 6 p.m.
