“Garden” is the artist's first book. It is neither a memoir nor fiction, but it resembles an ancient oriental treatise on art, written by the author with today's view of the world, where smart interpretations of ancient myths coexist with lyrical discourses about the nature of matter. “Garden” has a form carefully thought out by the artist: about fifty picturesque illustrations were created simultaneously with the text, they form a kind of parallel stream of the content in the book.
The “Garden” series reveals the idea of artistic perception through the energy of color. Both in the text and in the painting, Pushnitsky abandons the subject line. However, he does not exclude the figure of the observer, who is outside, as a kind of authorial voice behind the scenes, broadcasting the individual reflections of the artist.
