The Lens

The Lens

Acrylic with a stainless steel base 290 X 200 X 120cm.

This piece has been exhibited in the Sotheby’s selling exhibition “Beyond limits” at Chatsworth.

The artist commented on the present work: “As a child, I was very interested in looking at objects at very close proximity. In order to discern them in this manner, I used lenses. I wanted to get to the bottom of their existence and try to understand their essence.

From early childhood, I perceived that in our reality, everything that surrounds us is viewed through some sort of lens. All that we experience - our thoughts and feelings are an intricate pattern on the body of this lens. Patterns are changed and transformed, depending on the angle from which we view them and our point of view’

The Lens is in itself is aphilosophical object - we use lenses when we need to look at distant and massive objects like stars, as well as the microscopically small - like the heart of the atom. It helps us to get a clearer understanding of the world that we individually live in, the environment surrounding us and the universe that we observe from afar.
