Yari Ostovany, ‘Ode to de Chirico’, 2016, IdeelArt

Informed by a variety of different cultures, Ostovany feels a connection to multiple separate and yet complementary mystical traditions.

He looks toward elements of Western and Eastern art, literature, spirituality, poetry and music to create an environment and a mindset conducive to his process, which is connected to Abstract Expressionism and Color Field painting.

This work is part of the Fragments of Poetry and Silence series.

As suggested by its title, and whilst it may not be obvious at first sight, there is a clear and interesting relashionship between this artwork and the colors and compositions of a number of works by Giorgio de Chirico, such as, for instance, L'Enigme du Jour.
