You may ask why the picture needs a lamp?
To solemnly and unhindered to enter the limits, where before utilitarian purpose of objects reigned.
Tired to hang on the wall and silently look at us, the painting decides to interrupt its lonely observation and approach, and take part in our lives. But someone must help her - and the first assistant choose a lamp.
Starting from the lamp, the picture easily overcomes the alienation barrier, habitual for the relationship between painting and an object, designed simply to make our life comfortable.
Rotating and changing light, the lamp freely spreads around the image of the picture and fills the surrounding with an infinite number of moving light and color elements, destroying the usual forms and meanings and creating many new ones.
Without violating the established order, without depriving the object of its "useful" property, it "only" turns it into a precious work of art.
You can simply imagine the further victorious procession of the pictorial image in everyday life. In our minds, it is now easy to create any images where familiar things are combined with painting and become unrecognizable under different lighting conditions. And this is not the familiar stamped pastoral scenes on the plates and not Shishkin on the carpets, eventually ceased to even be seen. A continuous change or sudden appearance of a new visible excites and causes our perception of the familiar world to be constantly updated.
Going through the objects deep into the person's living space, mastering new, different surfaces (materials are not important), adapting even at his own whim change the time of the day, the picture sets its scenery on our stage, and turns us into actors. Freely, or involuntarily drawn into this performance, in a dialogue of pictures and lamps, and then - pictures and any subject, the viewer becomes a participant in the process of the existence of art. It is the process, for the picture no longer looks at us from the wall silently and detached, but takes an active part in our life and makes us be ready to travel daily to the unusual and new.
