«This series of paper sculptures I began during the time of my escape from Russia to Portugal. Horses that make up this collection bring the feeling of movement, freedom and pride, the only we can take with us, when house is left somewhere behind.
The technology is very simple and native and gives a big freedom. I am trying to create not a specific animal, but the idea of the creature. It’s like in language the word «horse» contains the idea of all horses that had ever lived or would be. But the form and proportions spoke more about the spectator than about the object.
What does it remain to you? What does it look like? What feelings does it evoke?»
