As art consumers we are so used to seeing the difference between what is old and what is new, what is iconic and what speaks a new language, what is classic and what is contemporary. Igor Skaletsky, one of the most promising and interesting artists today, in his first solo exhibition in Israel, presents an innovative combination and a bridge between these dichotomous values.
In the exhibition which will be opening at the Artstation gallery this Thursday, Skaletsky combines traditional painting techniques with contemporary technologies. He draws his inspiration from iconic art works, and gives them his own modern interpretation, thus creating a hybrid image separated from time, place and context.
Symbols of religion and secularism, pop culture, tattoos, animals and clothing items are combined into a unique language; a language with its own autonomous legality which exists in a timeless sphere.
Juggling the viewer’s visual habits and subconscious, Skaletsky gives an interesting interpretation to a well-known visual story, that is jut hard to ignore.
