Pavlo Makov is an unrivaled etching expert with a unique individual technique. The images and shapes in Makov’s works created through numerous impressions are laconic and rich at the same time. Here animals, plants, statues, and buildings meet and multiply, obtaining the status of symbols. The Tablecloth is a characteristic work for the author; its only peculiarity is fewer details than usual, and instead of habitual Makov’s landscape, there are a knife and a fork symbolizing personal household space harmoniously inscribed in the artist’s bizarre world.
