Romantic Expressionism is a complex way of combining some characteristics of impressionism, surrealism and traditions of the "Old Masters". There is a desire to penetrate into the mysteries of the Universe, and attempt to depict such abstract notions as multidimensional space, to reflect on the idea of time - from the Past, through the Present, to the Future; to show existing and non-existing; to connect to the Art Energy of the Universe; to exist in many Parallel Worlds at the same time.
