‘I am trying to tell with my sculptures that there is someone or something important that exists in a higher-dimensional reality, compared to us, people. I mean a kind of force that has no connection to humans. I believe a person has no influence on it but can easily encounter it’, says Valery Pchelin.
Pchelin’s art-works remind of conventional bio-forms. Organic features of his objects hold a message that these are all living things, pure particles of vital world, rather than pieces of anthropogenic creation. His works are ambiguously attractive; they draw and repel at the same time, and create a certain tension as if posing a fatal threat.
Meanwhile, only the ‘Great Drifter’ shows the destination declaring integrity and self-sufficiency as its primal features, appealing to perfection and wholesomeness of the being itself.
