ArtistIlya Trofimenko

The space of a cultural institution (museum, gallery, concert hall, etc.) multiplied by the event (exhibition, concert, etc.) taking place there, passed through an individual expressive state of mind, distorted there in different ways and compressed into a multilayered single image that on the one hand, still retains some connection to the event and the place, and on the other hand, loses its figurativeness, approaching abstraction to one degree or another and thus creating a space, a layer for new interpretation, which may have no connection with the original event.

Self-taught. Living in Dresden, Germany. His artworks representing visual and emotional state of mind sustained by particular expressive language of representation, which stem from the notion of meta-modernist sensitivity and build on the abstracting and distorting the real world's motifs as well as antinomy between concrete and abstract to allow for thinking through associations.
