Graphic poetry composition RUSSIA 2000: THE ROBE OF POWER (size 630 x 910 mm and 546 x 823 mm)

created using the unique technique of virzhi (stands for “virtual painting”) December 1999 – October 2010

(the version is based on the author's art work of the same name of 1999)

 

 

 

The text features one of the counterpoints of the graphic poetry composition:

   

 

…all depends on the inner eye —

on the own profound vision:

on your standpoint upon the course of things

on the bell tower from which you sing your note

on the unison in which you recognize your roving essence…
