" What is Objective Reality? Does it exist independent on us, or everything around us is nothing else but the fruit of collective fantasy? When we fall asleep, our subconsciousness starts creating its own reality, free from causal-consequent limits, chaotic, sometimes frightening, but always beautiful in its own special way. In my works I try to set my subconsciousness free when I`m awake, to get free from causes, meanings, and to get back to the primordial Chaos. But without a particle of Order, Chaos won`t be the absolute one. I believe that every person,every living being is the fractal God, in other words, everyone of us is God himself capable of changing the surrounding reality or creating the new one. I mean God not in the religious sense, but rather in mystic-cosmological, God who has embodied into the infinity of similar copies to realize the Reason of all reasons - God himself. Thus to me my works mean something more than just pictures - I consider them avatars of thought-forms and new realities with their deities." - Viktor Slepushkin
