Vladimir Semensky
Practices of Contemplation

Vladimir Semensky suggests that we temporarily forget about the reality around us and immerse ourselves in our own world of sensations, using only the language of pure painting. Based on specific objects of the external world, the artist transfers their images to the delicate fabric of the canvas, allowing the colors to spread themselves and fill the necessary space. Materiality disappears, there is no need to “guess” the content, the aspect of abstract perception comes to the fore. The visual becomes only a subtle hint, appealing to the inner mood of each viewer. Just as the artist deliberately "rejects" the task of copying the surrounding reality, we also have to give preference to our feelings, and not to reason.

Maybe someone will see allusions to the Japanese landscapes of the Kano school or traditional Chinese compositions Shan-Shui, and someone will feel the similarity with the illuminated film photographs from the beginning of the last century. The works of Vladimir Semensky do not put the viewer in an uncomfortable position, forcing them to unravel and know their secret meaning, they only offer to watch and enjoy contemplation without being distracted by the restless shell of the outside world.
