Cloud. 2017 - Ceramic sculpture from art series «My cloud». Original, one of a kind, direct from the artist. Certificate of authenticity is included. Сlouds - perfect natural shapes, ideal in their unformity. Moving and changing substance in the sky is fascinating and attractive. Sneaking clouds - an allegory of life's path, a series of accomplishments of earthly existence. Who among us did not look fascinated to heaven, guessing in their forms are familiar to us the images of constantly changing? Yuriy Musatov stops for a moment, and the cloud remains only a cloud. Such as the artist saw in his childhood from the roof of a high-rise building, or every time looking out from the window of the plane. He materialized them by rebuilding it in ceramics. But these «static» stone clouds are just as soft, disturbing and fragile. The illusory color, dazzling outlines convey the elusive feeling of heavenly, distant and mysterious.

Yuriy Musatov is a representative of the contemporary Ukrainian artistic ceramics, is reconsidering the traditional ways of working with ceramic. His creative works exist beyond the familiar categories or kinds of art – easel sculpture, interior ceramic. His objects are autonomic and self-sufficient in the artistic field. The artist applies the question of integrity of the person in the post-industrial society. The illusiveness of the modern world is represented in Musatov’s works, by the dreamy and subtle constructions, tender as lace, interweaving of the ceramic parts.
