Cyrill Clunev is a Russian artist who sees the world through a trapper keeper from 1996. That’s an obscure image, to be sure, but Clunev’s abstract works are reminiscent of the same kind of computer-generated commercial post-post-modernism you want accessorizing your homework as an 11-year-old on the go. Or maybe that was just me.
I can’t stay on topic here, though I may try. It seems impossible to maintain a singular train of thought looking at Clunev’s work, because abstract art is inherently that, and this is a situation where rationale simply isn’t rational. The point is these are beautiful, pristine images of color and light, only occasionally stopping to create form before jumbling back up again. Now I have to wonder what Clunev might do with motion; I’ve never been a big fan of experimental film, but if he made one, I’d watch it.
