more paintings

Anything obtrusive, loud or pompous is alien to this abstract form of painting.
The striking feature is its well-balanced body of sound.
Instead of weird dissonance and jarring forte, there are magical harmonies in an expressive piano and pianissimo.
Besides the musical mentality, these compositions of colour and form also reveal the architectural talent of the painter.
Leonid Jacoubouk builds and constructs his image worlds whereby the construction is never an end in itself.
Using stained cardboard or wood, a flat foundation is first laid, the strict two-dimensionality of which is interrupted
by an intuitive rhythm of scratches and engravings.
Often, it is a shining golden-yellow foundation which radiates that typical transcendence of icon painting.
Construction of well-balanced lines, geometric elements and floating recurrent fantastic forms creates a completely independent
world of abstraction which does, however, leave enough space for ideas and associations.
