From the review by Metropolis Contemporary gallery in London:
The digital painting “Metamorphosis of a Dream” for example, is an introspective work that explores the subconscious, a recurring theme of the 20th century’s Avant-garde, especially Surrealism.
But it approaches the subject not only from a psychological perspective, it actually portraits the mind of the dreamer. The different layers, forms and lines are the depiction of the brain’s neural activities, they highlight the multiple visions that occur during a dream.
The colours play a pivotal role in the construction of the image. The cold palette that ranges from lilac to turquoise and mint creates a dreamlike atmosphere, whilst the purple, red, orange and yellow solid colors create interferences and therefore activate a reaction in the viewer’s brain.
As Kandinksy theorized in his “Concernig the spiritual in art” colors on the painter’s palette evoke a double effect: a purely physical effect on the eye and a spiritual effect in which the colour touches the soul itself. This is precisely what Sergey Kir achieves through this artwork.
Moreover, through his unique techniques, the artist is able to create fluid forms that accompany the eye of the viewer in a pleasant and reassuring exploration of the whole image. The combination of shades and shapes create a dynamic surface on the canvas that results in an enchanting optical energy.
This painting is the perfect example of Sergey Kir’s Conceptivism, an art form that aims to elevate the visual art aesthetics to a much higher degree and to engage the spectator on a much deeper level by triggering many of their senses and emotions.
