Mykola Malyshko's new project in Ya Gallery Art Center is the field for old and new thoughts, reflections on ordinary and simple things that always lead to a deeper compassion and understanding. There are not that many sculptures exhibited (only two of them), and they are placed in a secluded exposition space which creates an organic separation and helps one privately comprehend the material and trace its transformation into an artistic form: 'To understand yourself face to face with the World. All alone, as if to see yourself for the first time', the author explains.

On the Knees and Light are the artist's newest works (created in 2018) in which he puts a lot of variants of meaning representation and perception. Discovering the global through details – the so-called 'induction' of meaning layers sheltering the interaction between an artist and the truth. The latter is embodied via plastic arts and leans towards the simple and therefore organic nature. Creating and realizing are the processes where the author's familiar feeling of the discourse voluminosity is unlaboured and accompanied by the focus on the sporadic.

Wood is a memorial element, simple and primordial, dealing with which grows into historical reminiscences that run through all Mykola Malyshko's works. This is how he treats this material: 'A pine beam is the earthy light of the Sun' – that is a constant dialogue about the interaction between the internal and the external where an idea and an action collide.

By incarnating the feeling in two dichotomous works, the author creates a wide field of reproductions in a chronological dimension of the cultural memory which is the basis of self-identification and an object of intellectual search. Differentiate the 'ordinary' and 'simple' among these analytical mazes is what the artist sets out to.
