“It's a serious work with all the seriousness they owe to the founding fathers who made the United States truly the United States of America. I like the seriousness of the lips of the nose and the paths of the face, and the scarf around his neck and the deep red background that leaves the dark model visible.” (Fr. Stamatis Skliris)

"Dostoevsky 2", acrylic on canvas, 2021
"Dostoevsky’s face is the face of a peasant. An ashen hue pervades the hollow cheeks, making them appear almost grimy, emphasizing the furrows caused by many years of suffering; the skin, dry and parched, is stretched tight over the bony framework, and is bereft of blood and color, sucked clean of life by the vampire which has preyed on it for a score of years. To right and left, two huge boulders jut forth, the prominent cheekbones typical of his race; a sparse moustache and a straggling beard veil the sad-looking mouth and delicate chin. Earth, rock, and forest; a tragic and primitive landscape; such are the basic lineaments of Dostoevsky’s countenance. All is dark and preeminently earthly in this unbeautiful face. I have called it a peasant’s, but I might almost term it a beggar’s, so flat and colorless is it, so lacking in brightness: a piece of the Russian steppe cast high and dry upon the stones. Even the deep-set eyes, gleaming from within their sockets, are incapable of imparting a spark of light to the grim visage, for their radiance is directed inward. As soon as the lids close over them, the face becomes a death mask, and the nervous tension which otherwise grips the frail features is relaxed into a lifeless lethargy". (Dostoevsky by Stefan Zweig)

“Dostoevsky”, acrylic on cardboard, by Bishop Maxim, 2021

Father Stamatis Skliris:

Did you see the charm of the dark background? "Dostoyevsky" is very nice, the design stands and the expression is serious, as it should be. The jacket with two touches brush is finished and is complete, with a clever artistic gesture. I especially like the atmosphere or the mentality. A serious man, thinking eyes, troubled, and a jacket spaciously wrapped around his body that betrays his Van Goghian suffering and existential difficulty to be caught by existence, to be clung to and not to fall into non-existence.

Depicting the Old Country and the New World. The Old Country is a place where you or your parents were born but do not now live. Never has it been so vital to understand how issues in the Old or New Country impact our lives, business, and... ART! A great number of Serbs who find themselves for longer or shorter periods of time spread out throughout the world – often departing after difficult deliberation – remain connected to the land of their birth or ancestry, living a 'double consciousness'... This painting somehow points to that phenomenon.
