Battle of contrasts by Leonid Ponomarenko

What is reality? And how to understand it? For Leonid, a russian artist, the first thing to do is to distinguish things to discern their difference, their relationship and their truth. That’s why we need contrast. But he puts contrast to any possible extremes: black with white, smooth with rough, green with red, warm with cold, hard with soft, which creates tension, dynamics, energy and ignite a “battle”, a surreal battle. And that is his reality.
