The world becomes more and more rushing and restive and so does the society. My artworks show a particular person in a particular state in a particular interval of time - the time stands still on a canvas in a certain moment. Transmitting feelings and emotions in combination with color-light nuances is crucial in my art. Light gently emphasizes the images, fills the form, "enlightens", goes beyond the rectangle of the canvas and envelops the audience's space, provoking the contemplative mood. The images, being transformed in my imagination, become something more than the fixation of the observed and experienced. They allow to slow-down life hustle at least for a moment to meditate as they are filled with sensations, philosophical reflections and allegorical content, inspiring to associative perception and reflections.

Oleksandr Serdiuk’ artworks are created on primed high-quality canvas with oil paints. Oil paints have pure pigments, as a result, the colors are bright and have covering strength on the canvas. The artist uses both open colors and combinations of several colors. New layers are being applied after the previous ones have dried properly. The texture of the painting is not homogeneous, some parts of the painting are smooth, others are rough.
