Description and information about the work:
For the artist, this is the path to another dimension, which is outside the temple: “It can be called anything. Every culture and religion has its definitions - mental plans, egregore. Mystical realism, surrealism? However, not so. This is the world that the artist creates and does not define it on an intellectual level. Rather, in the subconscious. And he himself does not know where the truth is in these paintings. But for Alexander, this path is more difficult, including on a picturesque level, and therefore more interesting. And he himself is not sure - when the period of transformations will end. And this is a lot of truth about Alexander Khrapachev. The rest of the nuances he allows the viewer to determine at its discretion.
A new development is the series of paintings "Reflections of the Subconscious", where the artist goes from images to ideas. In this way, realism no longer satisfies him, so the artist turns to surrealism.
In the flow of surrealism, the end result is always unknown. Space and time lose their significance. The idea of the path is being actively developed, the main characteristic of which is the direction, not the destination.
