The artistic project
Being in the process, people often forget about life itself…
“Look at life in focus!”- visual call of the artist Museyib Amirov in a completely new stage of his creature, to look at regular realities by critical view the answer to indifference and quiet relationship to destructive process which happen in the world. By pulling out from phrases by snippets and whole “poems” subconsciously, the works of the artist in the context of the project become big protest oncoming domination of impersonal, total, technical supremacy…
At his paintings the artist documents thoughts and a story of modernity in the grotesque form by stylized images, overfilling the form of the canvas redundantly. Portrayed people is trying to save themselves from the society which is alien for them. But that’s paradox this society has created by centuries by people themselves, here industry and new technologies outshone a person, and he became to depend on his “brainchild”. Originally, all impossible technologies was implied for benefit of people, but it turned out otherwise, and all turned against them… Now technical achievements dominate over “Homo Sapiens” maximum displacing it from regular natural life format into creating by person himself artificially, lifeless virtual environment into constructions space from concrete, glass and metal… In the city which a man built, it has no place… Progress is technical, regression is spiritual and in the result of unbalance of natural harmony laid in human genes.
