“You know, people lose their sense of wonder with children as they age. This is due to the fact that the neuroplasticity of our brain decreases. Collage is something magical process. It helps to take a fresh look at familiar things; he helps to awaken this forgotten feeling of discovery of the world. In each of the glued picture is a small discovery. At the same time, it is also a meditative process that helps to relax and get a good dose of hormones of joy. As for the style, then this is probably Dada in combination with classical surrealism. The main thing is that I use ready-made elements - old photos, images from photo banks. I do not draw anything. My task is to knock together disparate elements on one field and thereby strike an invisible spark. I believe that surrealism is the right key to comprehending reality, ”the artist notes.
Creating collages, Sergey often acts intuitively, building models of dramatic situations, in each of which the viewer will find something of his own and decipher according to his worldview and life experience. It happens that the original idea is eventually transformed into something completely different. It is always an intricate game of the human mind, images, archetypes, unusual scenes.
