Zmogk (Russia)

Konstantin Zmogk -- Through creative process I gain an understanding of reality and my place in this world. I am exploring the world around me and analyze my experiences, the impact of emotions I felt at different times.

My works are an intricate interplay of memories and fantasies. They reflect the search for a balance between the intuitive, the subconscious, the radically free initial stage of working on a canvas and the clear, orderly and rational stage of bringing it to completion. By combining these seemingly opposing approaches, I create geometric compositions, which look chaotic at first glance, built with color and lines, referencing cubism, expressionism, and fauvism. These compositions are narrative experiments with frequent incorporations of recognizable images: faces, landscapes, etc. They can be perceived and felt individually, often in a most unexpected and personal way.
