Ground of Things

The Ground of Things exhibition is the result of cooperation between the poet and the graphic artist. Aleksander Najda's poems and Vasyl Savchenko's graphics are at its foundation. The collaboration that we witness here began about two years ago. The poet shared his poems with a multimedia visual artist who, under their influence, built a parallel chain of works done with charcoal later transferred to silkscreens.
With time, it became obvious that the collected material deserves not only the originally intended publication but also a large exhibition, where, on an epic scale and form this fruitful collaboration will shine with amplified strength.

Our cooperation is a "living organism" and continues to develop. New poems provoke new graphic works that take the form of works on paper, canvas, silkscreen, and digital form as well. At any time, Mr. Savchenko is capable to transfer the result of his inspiration to true murals or "murals" on canvas or any other medium that will fit the needs of the given space.
