Vanity vanity and all vanity is the main motto of our spiritual and ecclesiastical literature. Why is this world unbearable? Because the world of today is the result of the fall of man. He departed from God, and the world turned into a prison for him; he must free himself from the prison of evil, he must do it. Man created for paradise. From the workbooks...
Vanity vanity and all vanity is the main motto of our spiritual and ecclesiastical literature. Why is this world unbearable? Because the world of today is the result of the fall of man. He departed from God, and the world turned into a prison for him; he must free himself from the prison of evil, he must do it. Man created for paradise.
From the workbooks of Tengiz Abuladze. Preparing for the film "The Tree of Desire."
A wish tree is an individual tree, usually distinguished by species, position or appearance, which is used as an object of wishes and offerings. Such trees are identified as possessing a special religious or spiritual value. Postulants make votive offerings in hopes of having a wish granted, or a prayer answered, from a nature spirit, saint or goddess, depending on the local tradition.
One form of votive offering is the token offering of a coin. The remains of one such tree can be found near Ardmaddy House in Argyll, Scotland, a hawthorn, which is a species traditionally linked with fertility. The trunk and branches are covered with hundreds of coins which have been driven through the bark and into the wood. The local tradition is that a wish will be granted for each of the coins so treated.

Dmitri Matkovsky Russia Canadian. Lives and works in Toronto, Canada and St.Petersburg, Russia.
After retiring early from a 25 years career in rock music with «Auktyon» and other bands he began as a acrylicist and was strongly influenced by Gerhard Richter, who was his first Teacher for the short period of time in 1991.
Style: Abstract Expressionism. Why?
Because of emotions. It’s all at this particular moment. All your life. It’s like a music improvisation. You need to say explain all life in one moment, in one phrase, in one white square…
I love paint and I love colors, and I love white canvas. I like even prepare canvas for painting, I just love to be an artist.
When I’m painting I feel like a marathon runner dying to reach the finish line. I feel like the mountain climber whose single driving goal is to reach the peak. I want to succeed. To win.
I feel liberated when create art. First, because I can escape this reality, and second, because I can produce something that is influence on somebody’s mood or state of mind. And I like it.
His paintings have been sold to offices, shops and private residences in USA, Canada, France, Germany etc. Up until now in 18 countries.

Дмитрий Матковский — художник-синестет. В психологии существует понятие «синестезии», особого способа восприятия действительности, когда информация, полученная определёнными органами чувств, приобретает дополнительное качественное значение. Дмитрий Матковский, в свою очередь, имеет «цветовой слух». Художник воспринимает звуки через цвет, а свои работы называет «музыкой на холсте».

Убедиться в особенности своих ощущений автору выпал шанс довольно рано: его школьная группа, «Мануфактура», стала победителем первого Ленинградского Рок-фестиваля, после чего он 10 лет играл в составе «АукцЫона»

Оказавшись в Канаде в 2001 г. ДМ полностью отдался миру живописи. 10 лет жизни в Сев. Америке оформили его как профессионала в области изобразительного искусства, заставили говорить о нем в мире галерейного бизнеса. За это время Более 240 работ ДМ были куплены частными коллекционерами и музеями Америки, Европы и Японии.

В настоящий момент Дмитрий Матковский живет в СПб и продолжает заниматься живописью, 3D анимацией, дизайном, музыкой, йогой, а также публицистическим творчеством.
