Rostan Tavasiev Naughtiness

Carpet – a metaphor of unique elementary substance, self-existing and having the infinite potential to create anything from nothing.
Srupulously carving the carpet, a blue elephant possesses not only an eminent erudition (hommage à Morandi), but principles of alchemy too: which create fire, snow and light.
The red road ends without reaching the ceiling. Building material, blood, light – everything is exhaustible and incurs both the beginning and the end. Reality, however, turns out to be superficial and fragmentary – the carpet has been cut now and there is cold emptiness underneath. Instead, a treasured masterpiece hangs on the wall and fire glows with soft fake flames.
