Dmitri Freund



In order to understand my art it is important to understand how I think and work. My creative process is similar to that of a composer.  The composer might spend a considerable amount of time at a keyboard searching for harmony, melody and rhythm that expresses what is in his soul.  I do likewise with paint on canvas in my studies of nature.  I feel chords of color, rhythms of shape and melody of light in the world.   The repertoire of studies I create helps me mature and broadens my inner vision of the world.

In a composition color carries an emotional thought.  Rhythm is the parameter of color. Light is expressed through correct rhythmically organized color. Rhythm is also a graphical abstraction of an object.  Unnecessary details are excluded, and necessary ones, altered.  Rhythm is the vocabulary and grammar with which the artist expresses his thought.  Color is the feeling and light is consciousness.  (With light we perceive the world.  Also, with consciousness we perceive and make sense of the world.)  These three elements, together, create a thought in a work of art.
