The work of Andrey Syaylev is an attempt to materialize the flow of time making out the architectonics of it's "spatial sections". Deeply plunging into details, the artist in the experimental series separates various textures, materials and spaces into micronutrients.

The most frequent figures of his works are pattern structures, for example, bricks, tile laying or books. For the artist, they play the role of ideal forms of «compressed» temporality. Brickwork or a multi-volume become as the models of visual meshworks that structure the human perception.

The artist considers his task to transmit to the viewer the skills of adjustment of the specific «depth of field» in perception of reality.
