Dmitri Fedosseev

Fedosseev’s work explores the loss of power as a catalyst for understanding human emotion, His work reduces the viewer to their most basic raw emotions - like, dislike, fear, joy.  He layers oil paint quickly over a charcoal drawing and then erases, or leaves be, essential elements.  The oils are then smudged and smeared, adding physical marks that become dominant in the final composition.  His use of a large human figure provides a poignant and grotesque subject matter from which to explore ones own loss of power and depth of human emotion.
