Curbing the Beast

Bogdan Andriitsev , from Grotesque Sculpture



“One of the most optimistic statements — "no one can be saved ..." What does this mean? Everyone can save only oneself. And the most important thing is the word "CAN". Why is this so? Because, as you know, "Woe from Wit" and "breakdown is in our head". Because my biggest problem, trouble, misfortune, or my most terrible enemy, which I think I see outside, is actually hiding inside of me. This is my inner beast, which I feed and cherish when I glance around looking for answers and solutions. When I find this beast, where it really is, inside of me, I can curb it. And I am doing it, step by step, fear after fear, problem after problem, victory after victory. This is my way, my beast, my choice, my rescue and my victory; again and again.”  This grotesque sculpture is a part of the theme "Energy meanings", which performs such basic findings: to curb inner beasts, to find balance, to be brave at the door of the Unknown, to create without fear of losing and fly to own dreams. The Artist represents those energetic meanings, which people need now to model their better future.
