The artworks by Andrey Sklyarenko similar to proverbs, in their world one feels safe and confident. Values are neither being proved nor conquered there, but are disclosed through daily routine relationships and collisions arising between people and through feelings connecting them. People in his paintings show care and close attention to each other. The sense of the occurring is transpiring through interlaced arms, crossing looks and pathways. The texture of paintings allows the viewer to percept tenderness and delicacy of these touches, strength of handgrips and openness of looks. Sklyarenko’s heroes operate also accurately and carefully with the items the artist put to their hands. Each item is given a certain justified place in the composition, therefore producing a fundamental and solid impression. Each item here is equal itself, and holds warmth of human hands which touched it. Sophisticated compositions hold spontaneity of suddenly occurred situation, which is survived as a real event. A subject usually is not limited to one painting only, but rather is a pin to string many different versions through which the artist gradually unveil the complete image living in his internal vision so far.
