(b.5/1/1964) is a sculptor and author of mixed media objects. In his metal pieces he draws upon his rich experience as a photo artist combining analogue and digital photography. By way of intricate ingenious transformations the artist transcribes the visual images of mundane reality onto the sheets of specifically handled metal. As a result there emerges an array of enigmatic symbols open to the spectators’ interpretation. The based-photo objects are absolutely unique since the authors technique doesn’t allow to get two imprints identical to each other.
Goryachkin’s allegoric sculptures incarnate the spiritualistic pursuit, transition of human existence upward from earthly to heavenly spaces. Their aesthetics ascends to the mysteriality of medieval art as well as to the abysmal drama of German expressionism. The works’ deliberate minimalism implies the rich variety of the deepest philosophical implications encouraging the spectator to ponder on the reason of being. The “ragged” aesthetics and coarse texture come as the result of the incompleteness of the artist’s statement and it’s openness to a wide variety of interpretations.
