Dmitriy Maximov: A Surreal Sunrise
Dmitry Maximov is a Russian-born artist that seems to exist in a world of his own. His works are at once as human — and humane — as anyone peeking in from the outside and altogether surreal, making up a land that is not so much a caricature of ours, but, perhaps, its shadow, a whisper of a possibility of what we could have been. And, thankfully, are not. More humane, perhaps, more painfully lonely, more different from one another in a way, we, who have our race around us, our country, our city, our family, even our culture, should ever fear to be.
The artworks seem to have no names that I could find, so, I will just say that this one, over here, is the one that struck me the most. This strange, gingerbread man critter is taking the time to appreciate the dawn of a new day. Shouldn’t we?
