The hero evolves through time, and, as for me, acquires agency of its own. Thus is it important to set forth such a platform for search and experiments that would take into consideration both the core and the “artistic mechanics” of this evolution, as it is a substantive phenomenon deserving more precise forms of expression.
Certain hyper-realistic and, more precisely, post-medial elements are also present in the artist’s works, in which the illusoriness of the image is the “reflection” of the illusoriness of the depicted space and the person’s place in it. Another important component of Sydorenko’s works is the author’s own presence in them; on most canvases, the author paints himself without the fear of opening himself up to the viewer, showing his vulnerability. In this sense, his works can be regarded as a performance in which the personal and the deindividuated are filled with the author’s subjective intonations.
