Paintings by Genady Arkhipau


My non-objective work is heavily inspired by images of industrial decay: rich textures, smudges and skidmarks, and bright colors of paint peeling of off walls in abandoned factories and warehouses. I’m particularly interested in exploring the relation between line and shape. I try to create an illusion of movement through expressive brushwork and strokes; aiming for dramatic effect by putting emphasis on strong contrasts between colors, shapes, patterns and textures. I hope for my work to be able to stimulate the viewer’s imagination, so the viewer will interact with the painting by exploring it and would want to revisit it, each time finding something new.
