I strongly believe that a truly good sculpture should have an active vitality, demonstrate architectonic stability, balance and harmony of plastic volumes and that it is very important to organize its space, make a sculpture actively interact with it and become a single whole with it. A good sculpture should contain three aspects: a direct sense (what we see), a hint, that we can guess, and a secret meaning, which opens only to those who can see it and understand it. A sculptor who understood correctly and learned well from the lessons of the Great Teacher (Nature), is able to create works that will not only fit perfectly in the interior, but also complement the exterior architecture of a building great, in the same way the flowers, trees or clouds do it. Art in general, and the art of sculpture in particular may be a way or a channel for understanding of higher mysteries of the universe for a person. Depending on the status and contents of an artwork, it can help a person move to closer to God, or to move away from Him.
