Video clip from ceramic artist Sergei Isupov lecture
“I am a student of the universe and a participant in the harmonic chaos of contrasts and opposites: dark – light; male – female; good – evil.Working instinctually and using my observations, I create a new, intimate universe that reveals the relationships, connections and contradictions as I perceive them. I find clay to be the most versatile material and it is well suited to the expression of my ideas. I consider my sculptures to be a canvas for my paintings. All the plastic, graphic and painting elements of a piece function as complementary parts of the work.”
