Root Gallery: Universes
It`s a very special gallery. I`ve started it in 1989. I was 18, it was rough time of total deficiency...It was impossible to purchase good paints and brushes, but also impossible to use bad ones. Even canvas were difficult to find but I felt I had to paint - despite everything!
One day my mom received pass for one occasion to get into the special artist`s store. It was a real paradise! I`ve got painter's case, oil colors, brushes (I`m keeping them until now). I still didn`t have canvas and found another solution: I used plywood covers for post packages, sawed plywood board into pieces. Even very small ones were put in production, and so this series started - my first real oil paintings, every with its own history. Now they became access codes as open as links in the Internet.
