destroyed space 2019

Destroyed space, this is a stainless steel sculpture of a deconstructive form that is tied to space and symbolizes the inner world of my country and the internal state of the inhabitants of Ukraine who live in constant search of themselves. Ukraine is now going through a difficult path, military operations, annexation of the territory and the desire to go forward. The project is about change and search, about illusions and desires.

project '' Memories'' 2019

Memories are a new project of a Ukrainian artist Mikhailo Deyak, conceived as a total installation. Known for his paintings on glass and sculptures made of twisted metal, Deyak continues to explore these materials in the new project. Memories mark the artist’s deepening shift of interest from a 2-dimensional plane to 3-dimensional space, and from an object to space as such. A series of colored metal objects entitled Genesis, which Deyak began to create in 2016, became the first manifestation of the artist’s desire to work with 3D spaces. An art scholar Galyna Sklyarenko described Genesis as a “a metaphor for how forms, movements, ideas and thoughts are conceived,” and noted their focus on “the genesis of new forms.” In Memories, the metaphoric dimension of semi-abstract compositions gives way to the pragmatic dimension of shaping the environment. The transition from Genesis to Memories is a transition from spatial compositions to compositions of space.

Deyak Mikhailo

Ukraine

http://mikhailodeyak.com/works.html

Mikhailo Deyak is a young Ukrainian artist who works at the intersection of painting and sculpture. Having received a rigorous academic training as a student, he applies a meticulous and disciplined process in all his works and is constantly searching for new means of expression translating his thoughts and feelings. He defines his practice as a balancing act between neo-expressionism and minimalism, with a keen interest in the experimentation of new materials such as glass and metal. One series often leads organically to the other. A main driving theme for Deyak is “Space and Humankind ” as evidenced in the abstract metal sculpture series Genesis where the artist combines his keen interest in science with the workings of his subconscious, visually strong with an emotional edge which makes his work so unique. Whilst Genesis describes the emergence of something new, they are seemingly chaotic, yet are ordered based on their form and content. Non-narrative, they are a product of the arti
