Catalogue Note

"The cataclysms of prehistoric times. The deaths of galaxies. Spirit, permeating the Universe. Harmony. The birth of stars. Meaning. Happiness and grief. The whirlpool of life. The greatness of prophets and the wretchedness of sinners. The buffoonery of the every-day. Bazaar booths. Masters and slaves. Occupation. The light of hope. Wind, howling outside the window. Love. Ecstasy. A fool, singing on the roof from a fullness of feeling. The roar of the lion. The crying of women. The insignificance of the routine. The fallen. Power. Oblivion..." From the artist's notes on the theme of his paintings, quoted in Lyubov MirJavadova, Aitokua, 2010, p. 163
