Sculpture “Stranger” by Yuriy Firsanov

Watches interested Yuriy from childhood. Is it not wonderful when a small iron box contains something alive, sort of a tiny organism with a hammering heart.
It’s a mystery and mystery is always calling.
The first unsuccessful, and therefore memorable experience of trying to understand watches was when he dismantled his father’s watch.
Later (much later) it turned out that the secret is not inside but outside, and watch is just a tool, certainly a necessary, sometimes clever and unique, but all the same just a instrument.
But the main mystery is time and man.

Yuriy Firsanov’s watches are philosophical discussion on the topic: “What is Time?”.

Quotes by Yuriy Firsanov:
“For me the time is not the movement of arrow, but the movement of the Soul”

” When I look at the works of painters and sculptors, I feel warmth and love that they have absorbed in their creations.
The surrounding world is dissolved and the soul opens to this love. “
