Igor Taritas creates mainly empty spaces of surreal and melancholic atmosphere. With perspective and geometric surfaces the artist gradually builds paintings that create a surface and third dimensional interaction. The interiors are stripped off inessential elements. Certain exterior components such as architecture, rails, roads often dominate the painting. With scraping, expressive colour dripping and stained surfaces on his paintings he creates an illusion of real space intertwined with inner spirits.
