Imitation is one of the important components of fine art. The ability to imitate the attributes of a style, a famous work or its fragment can be both an indicator of mastery and a specially used technique.
Any artist has to deal with ready-made forms of the world. But even if it simply copies, creates the illusion of volume, space, light-air environment, there is always a gap between reality and its author’s interpretation. This gap increases significantly if you move away from the desire to capture reality in the direction of their own form-creation.
Misak Cholokyan, initially starting from visual impressions, moves too far from imitation of reality. His abstractions are born from an analysis of the structure of visible objects and phenomena, are based on a verified ratio of volumes, picturesque masses. The concept of imitation in his works exists only as a starting point, emphasizes the difference between the initial state and the final result. The dissonance between the ordinariness of the original texture and the non-utilitarian, further non-reality overlays of images and meanings sets a powerful motion vector.
Comprehension of the works of Misak Cholokyan occurs through denial: to push off too simple and obvious and move on, like the discoverers of uncharted lands. This is always a breakthrough into another dimension, hence the epic in the sound of the artist’s works.
The degree of freedom from the initial presetness of the samples determines the value of the work - as far as the author had the courage, skill, power of insight to go far. Misak Cholokyan’s paintings are the path from the chaos of unstructured and unedited impressions to the creation of one’s own cosmos.
