    The exposition of the current exhibition consists of seventy graphic works of the author’s art project “Visualization of Subconscious Adapted”. “Behind the visualization of the images, the author’s used the approach of Rorschach test with the further individual graphic interpretation which gives them features of separate finished works. In this case, inkblot is created by the author or another person and then with the help of computer graphics images, which have meaning according to the author, are derived from it. Dmytry Mishyn’s perfect compositions are characterized by the aesthetics of lines and textures completed with colored inclusions which concentrate the attention, as well as by the clear themes and plots. Previously mysterious inkblots are deprived of abstraction and are turned into specific symbols and signs that act as images of the author’s personal experience and idiomatic messages of perception and evaluation of modern where tragic and comic interlace and lose their natural peculiarities, generating cynicism and irony. The titles of the works in Russian, English, and Chinese, which is the consistent part of images, accentuate the apocalyptic mood of mysteries of the informational net world. It is a new special form of artistic self-expression of modern conceptual art” – mentioned the leading researcher of the museum, art history expert, Merited Artist of Ukraine Andrii Nadezhdin in the booklet to the exhibition.

    For reference: The Rorschach test is a psychological test to examine a person's personality; it was developed in 1921 by Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach. A test subject is asked to interpret ten inkblots. Each image serves as a stimulus to free associations – a test subject must name any word, image, or idea he/she has. The test is based on an assumption that what an individual sees in an inkblot is determined by the characteristics of his own personality. By comparing the content of associations-fantasies with what has already been known about the changes in a personality and motivational sphere of the individual, Rorschach concluded that these associations are equivalent to dreams. It turned out that inkblots are able to reveal the deep desires or fears which are at the core of longstanding unresolved personal conflicts. The important information about the needs of a person, about things that make a person happy or sad, things that bother her\him and things he\she has to put down and turn into subconscious fantasies can be derived from the content or plot of the association caused by inkblots.

    Dmitry Mishyn presented the displayed graphic works to the collection of O.O.Osmerkin Art-Memorial Museum. Two graphic portraits of Dmitry Mishyn created by his fellow artist Mykola Reshetniak in 1971, when they were 20 years old, complete the exhibition. By the way, one of the portraits depicts the future Dmitry Mishyn when he is 70 years old. These portraits and several other drawings by the famous artist and completest Mykola Reshetniak (1951-2018), who later emigrated to the USA, and while living in New York had still exhibited a lot, Dmitry Mishyn also presented to the museum collection.
