Valeriy Skrypka

Artist Statement:
In my creativity, I aspire to interpret the inconceivableness of the universe, in which chaos wondrously coexists with the magnetism of an orderly rhythm. The components of my vision of this universe are fantastic combinations of its deformed elements. These are definite symbolic markings for speculating about the mystery of the world, a temptation to contemplate.   

The so-called surrealistic stresses of my fantasies are not marshaled to elicit gothic horror or disgust but rather an idyll, a unity of rhythm and motion, motion and support. My mythological beings are sphinx-like mysteries, which everyone interprets in his or her own way, yet none has solved.  My creativity is a perpetual search for true understanding of the unfathomable. It is why favorite mythological symbols in my work such as the apple of paradise, a wondrous bird, and the itinerant gardener, all exist in perpetual states of metamorphosis.
