An innovative cohesion of individuality, traditions, and creativity reflect the works of Belarus born artist Andrei Buryak, with an inward readiness for expression that emits as the ingrained feature amid his paintings. Encompassing an influx of underlying messages that can be visually extracted, Buryak’s works of art can be viewed as liberating and set the spectators imagination free.
“Naïve stardust, sentimentality and meditative concentration on intriguing interconnections within ordinary objects, incompleteness and detachment run through his painting,” states Bella Belarus, an online art gallery. A solid foundation transpires through Buryak’s pieces – drawing, coloring, along with having unobstructed vision contributes to the elements that shape the artist’s craftsmanship, with the additional balance of shade, hue, and color being his artful domain. Backdrops convey an identifiable theme of being intentionally decorative that therefore provides the subject with a superfluous emphasis, portraying an air of mysterious equivocality or yet of silence.
Figures, objects, and landscapes characterize Andrei’s paintings that materialize almost as illusions, where frequently his people are depicted with closed eyes. “The action on canvases loses its predictability: the artist generalizes the plot, which gains laconism and significance without visible accentuating what is going on. The emotional power of these works influences an audience little by little.”
The First Snow
Buryak employs many reoccurring patterns amid each painting; this being the objects, characters, and plots – transpiring as though they are shots extracted from a film. Echoing not only feelings but subconscious pictures, compositions regularly feature significant characters with objects of the trivial kind, along with chairs suspended upside down. Bella Belarus additionally states: “In this mixture of pictorial art and a motion picture some canvases are engaged in a dialogue, they narrate and other paintings play the part of freeze frames. And the audience realizes that it is not just a painting but also a philosophic movie.”
Andrei Buryak’s overall accumulation of works is created by his subjective positivism; a notion explained as” metaphysics of Love and Beauty”, where the artist believes the spectator should step out of their daily routine and encounter this state of magnificence.
