Alex Fishgoyt is a thirty-something Russian-American painter, living
in New York, whose oil painting reflects a surrealistic, phantasmagoric
exploration of the "collective unconscious". From a "spiritual"
viewpoint, his work represents a serious of meditations on consciousness
of the universe. And yet, if one looks for influences, one must
turn to the 20th century tradition of surrealism to find the sphere
to which Alex belongs. With a beautiful and specific palette of
colors, Alex uses a multi-layering technique to articulate a vision
that is once highly organic and profoundly spiritual.
In fact, the essential "oneness" of everything is Fishgoyt's
major theme. That theme is captured in an incessant curvilinear
dynamic. Ample illusions are made to figures caught up in an endless
and ongoing cycle. All this is embodied with careful architectural
framing as Fishgoyt deconstructs and reconstructs the subconscious
in his work (or is it his vision of the spiritual universe?).
