Description of the artwork «Ryazan of the future»

"Ryazan of the Future", 59.5 x 93 cm, oil on canvas, 2016 p.
This landscape belongs to the time of the future 22nd - 23rd century. This, or something like this, I see the world and my city of Ryazan in my imagination and dreams. I see a dream of patterns, in it my city, only it is different. I see skyscrapers rising upward, I fly between them, I see many multi-colored umbrellas, many people, multinationality, endless roofs of cars, buses, kiosks.

The image of the future city of Ryazan was especially clearly remembered by the area of the bridge across the Oka, the one that leads from Ryazan to Solotcha. There is now more than one bridge - along the river, at a distance of about one and a half kilometers from each other, there are still similar bridges and they are higher than this, they can be seen from afar, they are hidden in a foggy solar haze. On the banks of the Oka there are giant skyscrapers resembling moths or moth dolls in their shape; bridges will also pass through them.

Skyscrapers are intertwined with plants and gardens that grow on all floors. In addition to bridges, between the buildings I see in my imagination strange horizontal wave vibrations, most likely these are holographic broadcasters transmitting advertisements, newsletters, and perhaps they are also a protective field. Not far, inside the spheres, there are power boiler houses - controlled thermonuclear fusion reactors at Helium-3. Airship building will return to people's everyday life, it will become special, almost like Tsiolkovsky's and hot air balloons will again surf the sky.

The entire space, that in my reality was occupied by fields located on the other side of the Oka, it is all built up. There are bridges and houses like camel ridges and giant crumbs of bread. The city has grown for tens of kilometers. Mostly there are high-rise buildings.

There will be more water, it often rains. Rain is a symbol of the future. People fly between houses like angels. In the night, in my imagination, I rise high into the sky and see how giant pyramids, glowing and shimmering with lights, grow out of the city. I feel like nothing goes anywhere, nobody goes anywhere ...
