"By the water"

In 2021, against the background of the first experiments with material, where, in addition to bronze, the artist begins to use marble and acrylic, Zhigzhit Bayaskhalanov is also fascinated by color. Cobalt blue is captivating, one of those colors that has changed the art world, dividing it into before and after. Artistic searches prompted Zhigzhit Bayaskhalanov to exactly this color scheme, setting the right incentive for a new experience.

The richness of conceptual potential gives rise to a number of possible interpretations of this unique, emotional and deep shade, and together with the chosen image of the sculpture "By the Water" plunges us into the thick, enticing blue of the clear sky, spreading, filling the entire heavenly hand with azure.

Acting as a light trap, we want to enjoy and penetrate even deeper, examining every curve of the sculpture along with the overflow of paint that plays in the light.

The meditative features of the composition are visible in the obediently bowed head, falling to the life-giving moisture. Peace is expressed in the moment when the horse replenishes strength, drawing them from the source. The movement is balanced by a state of rest. We see a free animal. The horse has escaped the run of time, adhering to the measured course of life.
