Markers, photography collage on cardboard

In order to better understand the directional property of lines, I turned to nature. For years, I was fascinated by branches of trees, especially their look against the evening sky, when details are blurred, but shape and vector remains. Branches always have a clear direction, looking at it we can see the whole path the tree has gone. In fact, tree branch at each moment combines the past and present. We can extend this path to the future.

The most effective representation of the ideas of life’s path and potential can be found in a simple tree branch. In the process of development, it selects a path out of multitude and each choice contains new alternatives.

I started noticing branching structures all around me. A very straightforward observation, that became the impetus behind the “Transfusion” series, was focused on the fact that everything – from a body to a culture – contains such branching structures, both literally and symbolically. To me it was an evidence of a transfused potential, that seems to be the foundational quality of our reality.

“Transfusion #5” was the first of the series that I decided to keep. Inspired by angiograms, it is a symbolic representation of a potential that is part of our physical bodies.

This piece in the series is a representation of potential in external reality through the symbolism of tree branches.

Acrylics, plaster, inks, mediums, glue on canvas

When working on this piece and thinking about a tree branch as a metaphor, I realized its time-transcending character. Branch is an evidence of future constantly flowing into the past as potential becomes actualized. Yet as an object, it contains “archeological evidence” of all time simultaneously.

Multiple spills in this painting are attempts of experimenting with the same idea in a very precise, physical science: it is the evidence of realization of potential energy of gravity.

In this piece, I was continuing to work with the symbolic meaning of branches, while emphasizing the similarity across different kinds of branching structures. In “Transfusion #10” branches can belong both to a human body and to an external environment; they can be the view of the totality (the tree itself) or a local part of a whole. The ambiguity helps to focus on symbolic nature, which is otherwise difficult to communicate.

In this work, I am continuing my exploration of branching structures by trying to see if their symbolism survives the encounter with the reality, represented by photography.

This work depicts the idea of potential symbolized by branches being absorbed by human culture. In a way, it is the end of a journey: from the most local level of a body, though the externality of nature, to the final destination of culture, created by human beings yet inextricably linked to the potential of the world.

These pieces are my attempts to illustrate the connection between potential and actualized. I wanted to demonstrate primordial unity of all living, the type we get a glimpse of by looking at the tree of evolution, or, perhaps, for split second losing our egos. Humans with animal heads, or animals with human bodies, they are summoned from an alternative reality to demonstrate the unity of the origin of all life, with no end and no beginning, transfused with potential.
