“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla
Chicago-based artist Andrei Rabodzeenko demonstrates the power of simple drawing in the context of our complex and often confusing world. Through his “life-trembling line,” he explores the elusiveness of the shimmering border of reality, which manifests itself through “energy, frequency and vibration.”
From the time of cave-dwellers until today, humans have always shown a passion for drawing. Political and economic systems have changed many times, but our fascination with the act of drawing is hard-wired in our core. As children, we intuitively know this, but growing up we forget the magical experience of drawing: how a simple line miraculously transforms into objects that fascinate us.
Andrei Rabodzeenko’s exhibition at Riverside Art Center’s FlexSpace is curated by Dr. Lise McKean. The show features “life-trembling line” drawings, an audio/video meditation on the dynamic nature of drawing, and an interactive installation of stone, chalk and charcoal, to enable visitors to experience firsthand the primal satisfaction of drawing on stone.
