Color is undoubtedly the main component of most painted works. In some artists, however, it has acquired a status almost independent of the subject it serves or the effect it helps to create. At Mychailo Demtsiu, she is at the same time inspiring, medium and vehicle of emotion.
This color, the artist cultivates it in abundance and diversity. He likes the impasto that allows him to make the opulence of a bouquet or the fleeting vision of a character. It imposes contrasts sometimes rash but never unthinking. And when he paints the setting sun on a seaport, it's with vigorous reds, yellows, and greens.
Mychailo Demtsiu's painting is direct, spontaneous. It is the expression of a vision without artifice that translates into a nervous, flexible and personal style. His relationship to things and places is unambiguous. He first captures the guidelines and major tones that are then transfigured by the magic of the moment and bent to the demands of emotion.
Paris and Venice have largely inspired the artist. He gives a synthesized overview that does not deny the tourist cliché. But these well-known places, a thousand times represented, Demtsiu apprehends them above all for their chromatic potentialities. Thus, the "Moulin Rouge", it retains only the luminous mass that tears at night. And the cupolas and canals of the Serenissima are pretexts for a swirling of blues, reds and tender greens.
The structuring of the painting goes through a series of metamorphoses that affect perspective, form and chromatic correspondence. And even if the artist sometimes seems tempted by a more rigorous, more geometric organization of space, even if the line makes a remarkable appearance as a constructive and organizing element, he hastens to reconnect with this indomitable touch that characterizes him. . A vigorous, moving, rhythmic touch.
Some paintings by Mychailo Demtsiu can be surprising by the violence of the colors or the many freedoms that the artist takes with the subject. But, past this astonishment, we can not remain insensitive to the warm humanity that emanates from it.
