Artwork By Edgar Invoker
Edgar is an artist working at the intersection of abstraction and surrealism, which is true not only in relation to his style of painting, but also relates to the topic of his research. Being passionate about painting since early years he successfully graduated from the local art college with Art Teacher diploma in 1998. Edgar then pursued further artistic education in renown Repina Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg which he got his Masters degree out of in 2007. Least to say those institutions are considered very conservative and traditionalistic even now. This in a way created a “necessary” struggle to determine Edgar’s artistic pathway – quite dark and obscure – as an opposition act to what he was told art’s supposed to be.
For last several years he’s been interested in consciousness, cognition, machine learning and AI. What fascinates him the most is how human’s consciousness adjusts itself during the perception of external world. There are some mechanisms of such adjustments that he’s curious about above others. For instance, one of them is categorizing the information perceived into groups or “catalogues” which are then utilized to recognize new objects. Another one is false memories and circumstances under which those are being developed. Last but not least – perception mistakes that occur during object recognition or when consciousness alters different states.
The actual moment of object recognition Edgar considers crucial in artistic act. Main creative question he is trying to answer in his works is whether we able to discover something beyond known while interpreting familiar objects or is it gonna be always trapped within predetermined catalogues of memory? For that purpose he often reproduces digital images by analogue means. This way he strives to melt several visual languages into a new one – being a metaphor to discovering the unknown.

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator
Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life. Most of it was acquired during my travels. Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity. But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell. It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale. The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!
The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow. And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM” the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.
