Form and content …it would seem that the dialectic of these categories is quite obvious. However, when embodying a creative idea as content in the artistic form, a great importance begins to play, hidden in the content of the material, its unique energy. And this inner media uniqueness of wood helps the artist to reveal a special additional content especially in the abstract style. Wood is the main material of my artistic creativity.
Nikolai PETROV was born in Moscow. There he was educated in mathematics and later in art. The first works were related to architecture and design, in the future the main direction changed to the creation of sculptural abstract works. The main material is wood, which allows you to combine the plasticity of forms and energy positivity. The variety of composition and color solutions, the choice of parameters of works allow the author to freely implement artistic ideas. In this case, there is no unambiguity and edification, limiting the imagination of the viewer. The works are characterized by diversity and depth with a unique author’s style and free possession of artistic means of expression. The works reflect the versatility of the artist’s personality and his broad erudition in the field of art and science.
