These works Alex calls ‘Unstable Equilibrium’. His paints his figures in a mythical way where they are in a mundane setting. They look both indoors and outdoors. He says his memories of Russia influence these works because these memories have emotional associations. He uses these memories whenever he wants to create a particular emotional climate. After reading this it made me realize that if I want to express a certain emotion in my work I could use memories of my past as well. They might not be literal memories, but smells, colors, seasons, etc.
Kanevsky has been greatly influenced by the American culture especially the arts. He likes the freedom, informality of it, and its focus on intense personal experience, its love of understatement and implied depth.
These works are similar in meaning to my work in that the Instability of life clearly exist. I also break down my paintings to resemble how unsure life can be and how unstable my experiences have been. Sharing emotional senses about real situations and how they affect the human mind.
