A young man in a sports jacket with his back to the viewer is placed against a carefully drawn and intricately textured background. The background of the painting itself resembles abstract expressionism. The postmodernist work has literally been turned into the environment in which this young man exists. But is he able to see the whole picture and understand what part he belongs to? With the help of a simple technique Migachev creates a statement about the essence of perspective and the possibilities of a gaze. In a world that is accelerating and becoming more complex every day, it gets more and more difficult to grasp “who we are, where we are from, where we are going”. This requires distance, the acquisition of which takes a lot of effort.
