“Art is opening old doors with a new key” SS
“Art is the birth of secrets, not a statement of truths” SS

Savchenko’s works are energetic, intrigue with a sculptural solution, original logic or anti-logism. S. Savchenko’s free transition from abstract to figurative painting, from spontaneous improvisations towards the program cycles of canvases – these movements are determined only in an unexplained way the author himself of subconscious impulses, vividly signals the rhizome way of reflection on existence.

Olga Petrova,
The Oeuvre of Serhiy Savchenko in the Configuration of Rhizome Contemporary Art 2014, the 10 edition

“On account of everything said thus far, it comes as no surprise that his work is prolific to the extreme, in what regards not just the numbers but more critically the many paths he has undertaken. Savchenko’s oeuvres do not just range easily from the abstract to the figurative and all the way back, but rejoice in the many possibilities offered in-between; and yet, in spite of it, there seems to exist a basic need to leave an “expressionist” trace of himself at the core of all of his paintings, like a reactionary cry of allegiance to his own self.”

Antonio Luis Ramos Membrive
“Serhiy Savchenko and the enduring resistance of vision”, 2017

Ruin & Reproduction





<p class=”p1″>Words that are not heard and never answer stink. So said, my favorite writer. Visual art is a kind of specific information. Words – parts of speech, its bones, and skin can become the embodiment of a visual work without losing its meaning. But only reinforcing it</p>


Eruptions , process and matter.

This series of works is a kind of multimedia objects and is already the end result of the main action that takes place during their creation. That is why I almost always shoot a video when the oil paint is still wet «alive», making its way through the acrylic already hardened skin. Instantly, when the paint finds its way out, I often find it important. Later, the process of creating a future work composition is equally interesting. Because even after the matter of the paint determines itself on the plane of the painting, it is often very interesting after drying. These «eruptions» seem to reveal their true essence and verify the picture not as a flat surface, but as a body, with all its inner layers.

Portrait, nude.




“Everything necessary has mandatory elements. We are able to capture reality and space and arrange them as if we were creating an amazing and weird puzzle part to part. And only then will we be able to feel at home here. “Serhiy Savchenko
in a collaboration with Uliana Savchenko.
