New Blood Art Statement

Glib Franko’s work is dominated by his use of colour. Somewhat reminiscent of impressionist style - a style known for capturing the emotional essence of a place or thing, these paintings capture an experience. The work exudes a sense of understanding, of having reached out for that essence of something to bring out in the work.. We can feel the warmth of the sun on Franko’s painted cloud; the depth of the blue sky is tangible. The Roses are like a walk through a garden as the sun starts to set, the fresh clean air and aromatic fragrance of flowers, lifting through the late afternoon air. The harmonic colour palette of lilacs,  soft greens and blushing pinks re-creates a moment in time, his work is encapsulating.

Artist Statement

Glib Franko is a young artist who works with such classical artistic practices as painting and graphics, but this does not prevent the author from approaching the task in a modern way. Hlib's work balances between abstract and specific plot lines of contemplation of natural landscapes and everyday situations. Particular attention should be paid to the technical experiment created by the artist, since as an artist restoration artist, he uses the philosophical discourse of this process and sublime him into a peculiar manifesto of the process of pictorial origin that has already been brought into the artistic canon through the work of such bright people and trends of the twentieth century as Jackson Pollock , Yves Klein, Together, Stockists and others. The main priority of the artist's work is spectacularity, self-sufficiency of color, a form that in turn leaves space for the audience's interpretation.
