Eduard Sharipov’s art appeals to the major creative questions of time and space
Eternity has its own way of functioning in painting, it’s another coordinate system, alternative thinking. When eternity glimmers through the paint and canvas, it ruins any chains of events that stick to linear time model. The painting surface as the area of eternal present is very special to the artist. He appeals to the image system of Pskov religious painting – icons of 14th century, as well as to the traditional Chinese painting and Paleolithic art. Thus he finds the eternal present that has torn the connection of time and destroyed the chain of events.
