Sergey Rytov's Profile

About

Sergey Rytov was born and grew up in Central Russia but I always felt an inexplicable interest to ancient eastern philosophies and their culture.

His art was inspired by magical journey to India in 2006, a mystic country which manifests variety of miracles even nowadays.



Sergey’s art is symbolic with themes that are taken from classical Tibetan Buddhism. Transparent canvas symbolizes infinite space and emptiness - it’s a basis from which everything is manifested. And image – the union of deities, accomplished with fluorescent paints is a spontaneous game of energies in this space – like emanating illusory vibrations of light and sound, which we can perceive by an innate mind in its particular natural initial state of purity…

The creation of art for Sergey is an act of self discovery. The transfer of a certain emotional experience, of energy, pours out into the composition. The artist becomes like a conductor - he participates in the process, and is not involved at the same time. This approach is similar to ancient and cult arts in all traditions and in all nations, especially vividly expressed in the East, in the art of Ancient India, Tibet, China and Japan.

The human experience in those cultures is presented not in separate views, but as an indivisible part in an organic flow of manifestation. In a word – the Universe is in one atom and each Universe is just nothing but an atom. In that way the ancient eastern cultures remain close to us. All manifestations – like life and death, sensuality and distance, concreteness and abstractedness are perceived as equal natural things, and the creative work as a spontaneous game of space energies which vanish and become apparent again.
