Vladimir developed an oil technique transporting the viewer from the world of representational form to the world of abstraction. His application of paint is a dramatic contrast between thin, luminous layers and a heavier impasto. Vitkovsky couples a heightened realism with blurred, fluid edges. The resulting visual bridge for the viewer carries us into a unique world of emotional surrealism. He also incorporates a “splattered paint” technique used as a counterpoint representing the elements of chance and the irrational in human experience. Nonetheless, in this bridge between the real and surreal, we somehow regain our center and a heightened sense of humanity.
