«The gates extended into the entranceway off ering a view of the walls decorated with children’s charcoal or chalk drawings, faded notices about residents committee meeting, lists of persistent nonpayers of household bills and strict warnings like NO SHAKE OFF IN THE STAIRCASE! And it was only behind the entranceways that you could fi nd yourself in the courtyards: ordinary, double-exit, dual and large ones. Ordinary courtyards, spacious and typically grassy, used to be the most common case – in the area known as MOLDAVANKA. Narrow wells refl ecting a glazed patch of the Odessa sky – right in the centre of the city».
I love these communities where the residents know everything about everybody with all the details that make one sick. I missed all that awfully in other cities and ≪faraway lands≫. And every-10, 30 and 100 years the exclamations are heard that: ODESSA – is no longer the same! No – this is - IT, my ODESSA I take inspiration and vigour from even if my paintings depict other cities. And every time IT rises like a phoenix from the ashes, and I was born to IT, and if IT is a myth, then I am a myth, too! And I do not care if they call it a ≪hinterland≫! Try to view IT through my eyes; and you will never be able to forget ODESSA…
