Andrey Zignnatto explores the ideas of time and place in a physical world in which man coexists with nature. Being surrounded by nature-given objects, man shapes the space around him with artificial objects that bring geometry and proportion to the visible world. First comes the idea, then the realization, and between those two phases came the intention, the projection, and the vision. the arrtist investigates the origin of material and how it can be manipulated in the process of creation. Choosing large-scale sculptures and installations, he escapes the claustrophobic restriction of the studio and photographs them in their non-natural habitat.
