Stas Bags

Art Project "Milk and Vodka" 

In art of Bags, the graduate of Human’s Physiology and Anatomy Faculty, there is an aspiration to dissect everything that evokes creative interest. Frequently that brings the artist to recreations of new constructions from the reduced parts. The general idea of Bags is creation of a state, lasted in time. But this is not a chase of lost time, and not an attempt to reflect simultaneity or contemporaneity. This is a construction of endurance. In many projects the time-capsule effect is being achieved by juxtaposition of life and death categories. This is well seen in monochromatic paintings and in handling the objects that provoke pathoanatomical connotations: freezing cameras, ovens, barrows
