Artist's description:

A tesseract is a four-dimensional analog of a cube. It is to the cube as the cube is to a square. The problem is that our geometrical perception is limited to three dimensions, which leads to inability of the human mind to apperceive the tesseract.  A perceptive system in all cases must be broader than a perceptible one.

However, the fact that we cannot comprehend some phenomena does not mean that they do not exist. Neither does it mean that there are no creatures which can.

One of such creatures is depicted in the painting. We know nothing about it, its nature, powers or intentions. All we know is that its eyes are wide open.

The painting was created with oil and golden leafs and was inspired by the Christian theological theories, modern physics and philosophical concepts of the Lumières.

Materials used:

Oil and golden leafs on canvas

A Silent Observer (With His Head Caged in the Tesseract) (2016)
