“Something that remains unsaid and permits the play of imagination is present in Andrew’s figural compositions. The delicate contours are hardly noticed at once. Are they snatched out from reality? Or maybe it is not reality at all but a vision that was brought to us with the wind?
But what is reality? Is it what we see or what we imagine, the imagining of that ideal inner space that creates the visible world or vice versa? It is a question that remains unanswered. The case is that here we have a picturesque mass, the search of harmony of colors, a free flow of an artistic stream, an openness of methods – they create the reality of the picture which is a whole for Andrew Manaylo.”
