Zhukov is an artist who consistently works with abstraction. Creating incredible sculptures of metal that fit organically into the surrounding space
An enormous number of hard work and artists energy invested into sculpture. It is as if alive, it pulses and moves.
Zhukov believes that creativity is the research process, as a science, just in a sense. And the conclusions in this process is not verbal, but sensual. Sensory perception is also output. The artist creates reality.
He lives in Karelia, his house and studio are located directly in the forest. Therefore, he is inspired by nature, winter forest, cliffs, water. Sometimes, from sketch to the finished sculpture is held a year. His material is metal. It includes 4 elements: earth, water, fire, air. It is alive and flowing, and hard at the same time. It allows something or something does not allow to work with them, in this interaction is born sculpture.
Zhukov creates art that does not need additional interpretation
His goal is to make the viewer stop, distracted even for a moment from the bustle and try to feel the sculpture. Think about it, get your own sensual experience.
