Photo Lostness accepted on 1X.com

This photo was taken in the spring of 2018 in the Holeniv Lis nature reserve, which is located on the banks of the Desna River between the villages of Horytsia and Boromyky. A wild floodplain forest of huge poplars in several human reaches with an impassable undergrowth bush of blackberries and nettles to the human height, - it evokes a state of hypnotic admiration for the power of primeval nature and at the same time instinctive horror of the wild and unknown. It seems that this shot, taken in the spring, when you can still see at least something for some distance in Holeniv Lis from the only road that goes through it, conveys these controversial states very well. Looking at him, it's easy to get lost in yourself.

Perhaps it is precisely its natural pictoriality and meditativeness that the curators of the 1X online gallery appreciated, accepting it for publication.

It has already been selected by curators and participated in some photo exhibitions in Ukraine. Now it has passed the strict selection of 1X curators and has been accepted into this world-leading online photo gallery.

City Lights photograph is accepted into the world's leading online photo gallery 1X.com.

The photo was taken in 2019 in the central part of Zhangzhou, China. The main impressions of a modern Chinese city were intertwined on it - a huge amount of illumination, a two-story old center in a traditional style and a huge number of new residential high-rises of 30-50 floors with tiny apartments (according to the locals). By the way, in this evening walk through the city old center, in addition to our sincerely friendly guides from the host side, we were also accompanied by unofficial "guides" from the Chinese "comrade major", who actively pretended to be random passers-by and at the same time persistently looked at the camera screen — what am I shooting there 🙂 But everything was done with no incidents.

First artwork of Vyshyvanka.Art project is available

First artwork of Vyshyvanka.Art project is available

The Vyshyvanka.Art digital artworks are based on the patterns of traditional Ukrainian embroidery (vyshyvanka). Thr project aimed to recreate the patterns in a form of digital art.

The traditions of vyshyvanka art in Ukraine are almost 1000 years old, its pattern and colors carry a deep symbolic meaning. It is the "artistic code" of the nation. In order to achieve realism during printing, the pattern is not created from solid filled polygons (as is usually done and leads to an artificial "plastic" look and loss of the meaning), but from "embroidered pixels" measuring 20x20 pixels, which imitate the volume and shade of real embroidery.

The first artwork is based on patterns of the shirt of the beginning of the 20th century, originated from the Korets district of the Rivne region. The linen cloth background is a simpler, minimalistic and classic version of the background as embroideried vyshyvanka was placed on the linen cloth traditionally.

All digital artworks of the project are created on a unique PC studio based on the hobbyist-driven open-source Haiku operating system using the native BeOS/Haiku graphics editor WonderBrush.

Vyshyvanka traditionally is one's amulet ("oberih") so is a great art for your interior!

Vyshyvanka Art first elements

Vyshyvanka Art first elements

I am not the only one Ukrainian for whom the Russian war lead to the spontaneous emergence of new creative projects related to the history, culture and present days of our Motherland. Oddly enough, there is not a photography but a digital Vyshyvanka.Art.

Working on commercial vector designs (labels, packaging, etc.), I have long wanted to create something more creative in the field of digital art. However, the subject matter did not come up. While I was in Ternopil and looking at traditional Ukrainian “vyshyvanka” embroidery in museum collections, the idea occurred to me that the pattern of “vyshyvanka” transferred from fabric to an interior print can acquire new contextual meanings and become an interesting interior decor, deeply tired with the topic of Ukrainian studies. I started researching this topic and decided to give it a try.

The picture is only a detail of the future artwork, which was created based on the patterns of an embroidered shirt from the Rivne region dated the very beginning of the 20th century. In order to achieve realism during printing, the pattern is not created from solid filled polygons (as is usually done in commercial projects and which leads to an artificial "plastic" look of the pattern and loss of its meaning), but from "embroidered pixels" measuring 20x20 pixels, which imitate the volume and shade of real embroidery. It takes a lot of time, but it's worth it.

The work is progressing further in the direction of the finished artwork.

Time Has Stopped is available for prints

Time Has Stopped is available for prints

Artwork "Time Has Stopped" has been published on FineArtAmerica. Now you can purchase the artwork print here.

The photo was taken on the Budatska Neck during a stay in the town of Zatoka in 2019. It was a quiet evening, small waves were quietly caressing the sand of the beach, the full moon was rising over the sea, and it was as if time had stopped. I tried to convey this impression with this shot. At that time, no one knows that in 3 years, under Russian attack, Zatoka will become a hot spot under fire, and time will stop there in a completely different dimension...
