From samsara to the absolute is a painting of Alexis Olin, a Ukrainian artist from Kiev. Artwork belong to Cold shining series, which he describes as "Emotions caused by perception of dark, by something mysterious and unexplored. Internal experiences, search of answers and redefining of life moments, fear as a state of being. In the portraits of people I wrote, I wanted to capture this very emotional process. To emphasise its depth I plunged my characters in complete darkness, through the cold light of which faces of characters can be hit off."
