Oleg Minko. My hierarchies

National Museum. Sheptytsky in Lviv is an exhibition “Oleg Minko. My hierarchies. The project provides an opportunity to read the artist's works in a new way, based on his author's method. Oleg Minko (1938 - 2013) - representative of the alternative art of Ukraine of the 1960-1980s, taught at the Department of Art Textiles in the Lviv National Academy of Arts.

The first part of the project, “From Perception to Hieroglyph,” is usually not exposed to samples of abstract painting compositions of 1960-1965, which show early plastic experiments using the method of synthetic cubism and tactile abstraction. The second part of the exhibition is devoted to the “archetype”. It contains paintings of 1963-1967, where the artist methodically identifies sustainable universal forms of national cultures in recreating the image of nature, the animal world and man. The third part - “The Universe” - is the disclosure of the method for creating compositions of 1989-1995 based on the figurative processing of the forms of the surrounding nature, the study of the ideological forms of religions and myths. The fourth part is devoted to the position of the artist - these are works on moral and ethical themes. The fifth is the work of different periods of creativity, united by the concept of "Hierarchy".
