Diffus (mirrored)

Niva once said that he wants his paintings to seem as little like paintings as possible. This is apparent in the choice of colours, for example, which is influenced by photography and the study of optics. ; Niva’s paintings draw our attention to space and the experience of space. The works may be concave or convex, or they may be placed in the corner or on the floor of the gallery. Although this work is flat and is hung conventionally on the wall, its shape and composition create an impression of a three-dimensional space in front of the work.
