Ars longa, vita brevis Artistic society “INSIGHT” The artistic society “Insight” is a group of artists whose beliefs of creativity are based on the notion of inspired perception. Insight, anticipation, intuitive perception or creative imagination are all parts of a single entity in the process of synthesis of new knowledge, which is derived from reflections on certain evident facts. Insight involves the spontaneous combination of a number of isolated units, which result in new experiences. Insight is a creative idea dawned by Archimedes when he leaped from bath and shouted: “Eureka!” (“I have found it!”). Insight is sometimes bestowed to the artist when something of emotional importance albeit, not definite to consciousness, becomes the content of imagination. Transferring impressions into artistic images is an intrinsic feature of artists who aspire to beauty and whose aim is the perfection of everything. The artists of our society inexhaustibly create new paintings, graphics and sculptural works, which are all stamped with their unique individuality. In fact, insight and intuitive grasping is part and parcel of any creative process. An ingenious person can arrange an astonishing melody simply out of separate phrases and he is also able to create new constellations and worlds by simply gazing at them. The idea of our society has come into the world when we, beholding our pieces of art, all of a sudden decided to unite in order to exhibit our works together.
Biography: Denis Chernov was born in 1978 in Sambir, Lviv province, Ukraine. He lives and works in Kharkiv after graduating from Kharkiv Art College, in 1998, Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts (Chair of Graphic Art), in 2004. He regularly participates in artistic exhibitions (above thirty five), both in Ukraine and abroad. Most of Denis Chernov’s artworks are kept in private collections in Ukraine, Russia, Italy, England, Spain, Greece, France, USA and Japan. Some works were on sale at Christies. He works in a wide range of graphic and painting techniques, though his favorite is pencil drawing, which covers such as landscape, portrait, nude, genre compositions, book illustration, literary and historic reconstructions and fantasy. In 2004 – 2006 he held a studying workshop at Kharkiv Art College, at present he is a lecturer in drawing at Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts. Since 1998, has taken part in numerous research studies and conferences in aesthetics and philosophy, at the same time fruitfully participating in art shows. Since 2006, he is one of the co-founders of an artistic society “INSIGHT”. Scholastic research luckily combines with his creative work to form a single entity, by which the latter serves as attesting ground of the sorts for his theoretical findings, and the former embraces and systemizes the experience gained through workshop experimentation. The amalgamation of these approaches is of particular significance for an acting artist, which, for example, can be traced, in his work on the graphic cycle “Symbols of Time in Eternity”.
