The artist positions himself as the founder of a new direction in the visual arts - “light-subject painting”. Light has become the main subject in the work of the author. Having created his own aesthetics of Light, he showed how Light can be transformed into Color.
According to the artist-innovator, he develops a “pure language” of painting, starting from the experience of the first avant-garde artists. According to researchers, the works of Chkhaidze, created in 2005-2018, show that the era of neoplasticism and Suprematism, begun in 1910-1920. Mondrian and Malevich completed. They note that in 2013, creating the picture “Entry into the World”, which gave the name to the exhibition, Omar Chkhaidze broke out of Malevich’s “black square”, personifying Darkness, into Light, which is a substance of the Universe - and he began to write only Light, only vibration of spiritual Light.
The range of interests of Omar Chkhaidze is not limited to painting. He is the author of the innovative project "Center of Light", created in 2016 and in 2017 received the state patent of the Russian Federation.
Building his concept of the universe in line with the teachings of V.I. Vernadsky, he proposed, in addition to the concepts of the biosphere, anthroposphere, and noosphere, two more, belonging to the field of Light and Darkness - the luxosphere and the tenebrosphere, whose unity and harmony is the highest stage of evolution of the biosphere and noosphere. For this discovery, the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences awarded Omar Chkhaidze the gold medal of Peter Kapitsa, and the European Academy of Natural Sciences - the medal of Wilhelm Leibniz.
In his work, Omar Chkhaidze seeks to combine art, philosophy and science, like the great masters of the past. He is confident that in this unity and only with Love, humanity can fulfill its mission on our planet.
Presenting his new exhibition project in the halls of the Russian Academy of Arts, Omar Chkhaidze invites the viewer to go beyond the usual understanding of painting and color, "go out into the light."
