Dmitry Gutov Rembrandt's Drawings

The pattern is multiplied and masterful lines obtain monumental significance. Lightness of the hand is opposed to weightage of the matter.
Sketches interpreted in metal are drawn to a three-dimensional space. Characters, put in iron and limited by square frames, aquire a completely different fullness.
Image is subtle and balances on the edge between abstraction and figuration. Only one perspective allows the vermiculated chaos to become a familiar drawing.
Accurate hammer-work is comparable to perfect construction calculations of Egyptian sanctuaries. There is only an instant when time, nature and space merge enabling a stream of light to fall on the divinity’s face.
