Auction house "Golden Section" in Kiev is a personal project of Ukrainian artist Nikita Vlasov "Lacuna
". This is an experimental art project whose visuality exists on the verge of the philosophical foundations of classical Japanese calligraphy, painting "sumi-e" and the methods of automatic writing of surrealists. The project combines three themes - birds, people, and planes made with black Chinese ink on white paper on a large scale.
“Maybe it all happened to me or even to everyone. Without semantic specifics, the imagery of the Lacuna project is able to reveal its depth only under the watchful eye of a free person, ”the author comments on the series of works.
