Oleksii Koval: “Pine. Golden evening”


2020; 51×102 cm; Copper, enamel. “Art is a fairy tale, it’s a mystery.
If an oil painting for example is highly predictable, and
etching implies about third of unexpected effects, the result of
working with enamel in its turn is up to 70% accidental.
Accident is the most beautiful thing in art. When you master
the main secrets of the technique you can deliberately
change something, do something wrong on purpose, and
upon getting the results you can build a whole new system
from this mistake. Enamel is a technique that allows you to
create a mystery.” OLEKSII KOVAL KOVAL OLEKSII born in Kyiv, Ukraine. In 1996 he graduated from the Shevchenko State Art School (painting class).
