About me
I’m Albert, born in 1989 in Siberia and grown up in Germany. After 13 years at the School of Music and Art I decided to follow my artistic path autonomously alongside studying Philosophy and Mathematics in Berlin. It was during this time that I discovered my love for the line. I went to London to study Logic and I became acquainted with the contemporary art scene. There I became inspired by the autonomous work of Cy Twombly and Gerhard Richter.

About my art
As a philosopher I study a fundament of language and thought, logic. In art I examine a fundament of images, the line. Working with such fundaments is what drives me. Lines are among the most intuitive means to perceive and understand our environment. Every recognition of visual structures as shapes, space or objects depends on a recognition of lines. This dependence is given by the absolute simplicity of lines. They are so basic that there is nothing we can conceive beyond them, i.e. anything can be constructed with lines but nothing constructs lines. The only possible candidate for an underlying structure of the line is the dot. However, as the dot can be treated as an infinitely short and infinitely thin line, the distinction between lines and dots is irrelevant. The ultimate simplicity of the line provides independent aesthetics. It is no image of an idea as it is not constructed by anything else than itself. To reveal this aesthetic power the line has to be self-referential. I draw lines not to construct or build something, but to draw only lines themselves. The shapes and patterns occurring in my drawings have no other purpose than to reveal the movements of lines. My lines are living creatures that move by themselves. The observer of my lines is confronted with an independent and equal entity.
