Informed by a variety of different cultures, Ostovany feels a connection to multiple separate and yet complementary mystical traditions.
He looks toward elements of Western and Eastern art, literature, spirituality, poetry and music to create an environment and a mindset conducive to his process, which is connected to Abstract Expressionism and Color Field painting.
This work is part of the Fragments of Poetry and Silence series.
The inspiration and the point of departure for this series is a poem by John Berger, Dream:
In a pocket of earth I buried all the accents of my mother tongue
there they lie like needles of pine assembled by ants
one day the stumbling cry of another wanderer may set them alight
then warm and comforted he will hear all night the truth as lullaby
