In his work, the artist often refers to the sacred art traditions of past eras: to Old Russian and Byzantine icon painting, Romanesque fresco, Gothic stained glass window, etc. Confidently rising above any imitation of the canon, the artist plunges into the study of multidimensional plastic codes of ancient images. The movement from the surface to the depth, to gaining an internal artistic form, is not without an active interpretation of the lessons of the Russian classical avant-garde, especially of such masters as Goncharova with her appeal to folk art and Filonov, with his “form invented”.
In the early cycles of the works (The White Cycle, Post tenebras lux), each object or architectural object was turned into a self-worthy “hero” that exudes inner light, existing only thanks to this light in surreal space. In paintings of later periods, the color becomes the most expressive and important artistic tool, acquiring the quality of an independent full-fledged image (hence the cycles of dedication to individual colors, for example, “Praise to Blue”).
In general, Kislitsyn’s creativity is characterized by extreme generalization, laconicism of images, hieraticity, lack of literature, flatness of the image,
