Until 1983 was engaged in figurative painting and graphics in an expressive manner. By this time I wrote a book of aphorisms, which served as the impetus for the creation of a series of abstract paintings of symbolic persuasion. Awareness of the significance of symbols of opposites (rational and irrational, . male and female, etc.) in form and color became the foundation of beautiful constructions, . are plastic equivalents initially raised my verbal constructions,
. In addition to the works, . beyond the symbolic method, . I keep a passion for connection nesoedinyaemogo and needs to use the plastic floor, . is in the process of interaction with her that emphasized and supported, . as dominant, . there remains some, . disappears altogether,
. When the art of pictorial series gets a verbal text, . the viewer inevitably arises a kind of psychological tension, . because, . one hand, . would no doubt as an expression of a sense, . on the other - is questionable as the fine element,
. The intellectual core of this art is a study of a threshold of informativeness "of the various ways of expression. As a result of the conflict between visual and verbal in plastic, as on the battlefield remains a "ban on the word" or a ban on image. As if following such a ban, . suddenly perceived, . Several years ago, Victor Umnov, . schedule with a sharp vision and a non-trivial, . suddenly moved from expressive-dramatic figures to minimalist abstractions, . from the sensual fullness - to the analytical asceticism,
. In painting, this analytical pathos embodied in its purest form and full compliance with the author's desire to explore the sacred dimensions of semantics of geometric forms, . the laws of their existence in the vast cosmogonic system, . in a series of oppositions "male - female", . "rational - irrational", etc.,
. In addition to the philosophical reflections of the artist have been introduced to them directly in the large graphic compositions. Significantly dramatized imagery of these songs. Syuzhtnaya dmaturgiya these sheets is constructed as if to counter speech with silence. Collision "say" and "express" creates a worksheet in the active field - a field of interaction between two ways of speech, in the aggregate and in the struggle still proclaim a single truth. This is the truth above all dialectical - as dialectical, is dual world, strange and indirect projection of which this schedule. Actually, not only graphics. Even philosophy.
