SOUL dep ARTS (Vladyslav Popereka)

Focus

What is happening around us? What is happening inside each of us?

What do we feel, and how do we experience it?

It seems to me that our world is so fleeting that we stop noticing something and lose focus. Starting with everyday life, routine, work processes, the feeling of a successful or not-so-successful day, and ending with global issues such as war, society, culture, and everything that happens around. Thus, the balance of one with the other is lost.

In this series of works created from 2021-2023, I experience all of this on my own, sometimes in balance and sometimes not at all. This is precisely what I want to express as sincerely as possible on the canvas. It can be seen in bright and naive colors and expressive compositions.


In this art exhibition, I want the viewer to focus a little on his personal, genuine feelings, both everyday and global.

For the sake of interpretation, the works are divided; to the left, one can view positive narratives; to the right, negative ones; and in between them, everything that happened, and I managed to keep it somewhat balanced. Perhaps text clues in the form of calligraphic inscriptions will help grasp and experience the work's context.
