Artist Statement of Semion RabinkovSemion Rabinkov`s Personal Statement
I have been a sculptor all of my life. The more I do, the more difficult I find it to explain what sculpture is.
For me, sculpture is the combination of all medias. This is right, and, on the other hand, wrong. The whole of sculpture is greater than its parts. Sculpture is the full reflection of our lives.
I have been creating figurative sculpture for over 35 years, and I could have done it all of my life. The plasticity of a human?s body is boundless. However, in recent years my interests have expanded to the relationship between the figure and the nature surrounding it.
I do not trust in apocalypses? forecasts. The human being is a part of nature, and what is created by hands by a person should co-exist in harmony with nature. I believe in the possibility of the human?s sensible and harmonious integration with nature.
In my latest works the dominant materials are steel and bronze. Stainless steel, for me, represents a human aspect, and bronze personifies nature. The cold, shiny stainless steel dictates a certain approach. It calls for something geometrically strict with a rigid silhouette and sharp sides.
Bronze is a ?warmer? organic material. Bronze alloys have been found in result of volcanic activity thousand years ago.
The coexistence of these materials personifies mutual relations of the person and of nature. And I hope, my works exemplifies it.
The scale of my work ranges widely. I believe each piece can be monumental regardless of size.

Reviews of work by Semion RabinkovSemion Rabinkov`s Reviews
Certaines sculptures provoquent en nous une admiration tout simplement, dautres-sourire ou encore tonnement. Chez Semion cest tout fait different. Cest une sculpture qui refl?te notre vie quotidienne avec toutes ces facettes de joie et de mlancolie, de tendresse et de force, de nostalgie et d?enthousiasme. Chacun de nous avec un peu plus de coeur et un peu plus "me se reconna`t dans son oeuvre.
Galerie Graal, France
I have been acquainted with Semion Rabinkov`s work for many years.
I also came to know his technical abilities and creative process as well during the time we worked together as he helped me create my monumental sculptures. In my opinion, Semion belongs to a limited group of modern sculptors who have a solid classical background. By taking an active part in all the stages of creating a sculpture, he also has the practical experience of a craftsman. It is the combination of knowledge with skill permits him such total freedom of creativity. The sculpture of Semion, no matter how much he deforms the human body and no matter how far he deviates from classical constructional proportions, always has a professional core. This is what differs Semion from laymen who only know how to imitate modern plastic art.
Semion`s sculptures are full of expression and freedom. His deformations are tense and meaningful, and not in the least chaotic. This gives us every right to say that we deal with mature artist.
