Kirill Mikhailin
From the series ‘Impurities’, 2021

Mixed media, watercolours on paper
Varied dimensions

The new issue of Sreda online magazine features graphic works by Kirill Mikhailin, a graduate of the Baza Institute.

In the Impurities series, the artist creates subtle, shimmering images of real objects with the help of abstract lines and forms, modified with watercolours. In the course of artistic transformations, the material sources are deprived of their recognisable features and fall into the unstable space of emptiness. Emphasising the distance between the image and the viewer, works from the Impurities series relate to frozen time and fragments of personal life.
