Igor Gubsky is an artist with a sure hand and a sharp eye, with the gift of animating the picture with multiple dynamic strokes by which the work is filled with the breath and thrill of life. He knows brilliantly how to translate natural impression into images - sharp, expressive, distinctive, recognizable. His works are deep and ambiguous. They are made in realistic and metaphorical manner with gorgeous lush paintings, enriched with nuances. They paradoxically combine the virtuosity of old masters and traditional oil painting on canvas with a modern philosophical - detached statement of the problem and a very brief and partial statement of the author.
Taking the visual language of the Ukrainian baroque, Olga Kovtun and Andrei Kovalenko created their own art of allegory. Allegory here is seen not as a complex symbolic representation of a particular subject, but, as a multiplicity of interpretations of the theme. Such an image is perceived in different dimensions - as a national epic, religious tradition or historical quotation, or as an intimate personal narrative. For artists, baroque allegory is a statement of multiple interpretations by the object.
Baroque outlook is a doubt, an unsolved mystery, expectation of unexpected. Therefore for us baroque is more than just an artistic style or an era in the history of European culture. Rather, it is the state of perception, the point of observation and evaluation of events, people, signs.
