Yuriy Sivirin's art language
"Within the abstract shapes and colours lies the detonation of our desires and sufferings, which are beyond language and leave us on the verge of the semiotic and symbolic. This evokes our need to constantly search for and decode the meaning within this painting, similar to the attempts to decode our own incomplete and contradictory existence.
The images and symbols presented in the paintings raise questions about our own knowledge and understanding of the world. They encourage us to think about how our knowledge is shaped and confined by dominant discourses and how we can break free from them to discover new perspectives and possibilities." - Yuriy Sivirin
