In Fields and in the Woods 2013 particle board, oil pastel, wax crayon 1830×915

Lands, adjoining the Sixteenth district of Zelenograd to the west (the artist's favourite places to walk) are shown with the utmost topographic precision. All the natural objects look like in reality. This work uses wax crayons for the first time. This reverent and gentle material has proven to be ideal for open spaces — fields and meadows. Carved silhouettes of firs remind the pagan idols. According to the author, it symbolizes ancient origins of his art. The artist stopped in his walk through the spring ploughed field, having heard the crane call. He raised his head and saw a flock of cranes flying above him.
