Omar Chkhaidze Gallery
"Light is in everything and everything is in Light"
Omar Chkhaidze
 

Omar Chkhaidze is an artist who introduced a new aesthetics in painting - an aesthetics of Light, and showed how Light can be transformed into color. Light has become a major subject in his work. He is a founder of a new direction in fine arts - the Light-figurative painting.

Omar Chkhaidze was born in Georgia on the 16th of April, 1944. In 1960 he entered the Ya. Nikoladze art school, later, in 1966, the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, the faculty of painting.   
 Since 1994 he livies and works in Moscow. In 2000 he opened his gallery in the Central House of artists.

An artist-innovator Omar Chkhaidze in fact followed in the footsteps of the first avant-guarde artists, also, as they did, developing the language of pure art. His most recent works show that the era of neoplastisism and suprematism initiated in the 1910 -1920s by Mondrian and Malevich, and also the pangeometric traditions that have played out for centuries, have been successfully concluded. Having created the painting "Out into Light", Omar Chkhaidze broke away from the notorious "black square" personifying darkness into Light - the substance of the Universe, and began to paint only Light, only the vibration of spiritual Light.

Omar Chkhaidze is a Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of  Arts, a Member of the European Academy of Natural Scienses, a Member of the Russian Artists Union, a Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, a Member of the Georgian Artists Union, a Member of the International Arts Association UNESCO. 

In 2016 the Russian Academy of Arts held a presentaion of the project "Light-figurative painting", and the book "My way" by Omar Chkhaidze. The artist was awarded a Gold medal by the Russian Academy of Arts for the creatoin of a new direction in the art of painting. At this pesentation he was also assigned the honorary degree "The Knight of Science and Arts" by the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, and was awarded a medal. The European Academy of Natural Sciences awarded Omar Chkhaidze the Leonardo da Vinci medal for the new direction in fine arts.

Omar Chkhaidze's circle of interest is not only confined to painting. He is the author of the innovation project The Center of Light  worked out in 2016. A precisely verified structure of this architectural ensemble contains in itself the Universe code. It builds up the attraction of spiritual  Light energy  generating  a powerful protection field, purifying and healing the sole and matter, and unifying all the nations of our planet. This project recieved a state patent of the Russian Federation.

Omar Chkhaidze expands the notion the sphere of the planet; biosphere - the sphere of life (1875, Eduard Suess); antroposphere - the sphere of man (1902, Dmitri Anuchin); noosphere - the sphere of mind (1927, Edouard Le Roy) up to the infinity of the Universe. He beleives, this overall spiritual sphere has two aspects - the sphere of Light and the sphere of Darkness, and suggests naming them luxoshere (Lat. lux - light) and tenebrosphere (Lat. tenebrae - darkness). Both, luxosphere and tenebrosphere, are the top stage of biosphere and noosphere evolution. It's the infinity and eternity of the Universe. In 2017, for this discovery the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences awarded him the Gold medal of Peter Kapitza.

 Now, following the inventors who gave the world such instruments as microscope (1590, Hans Jansen), telescope (1609, Galileo Galilei), nooscope (2011, Anton Vaino), in cooperation with the scientists, he intends to build luxoscope - a device for measuring the field of spiritual Light around and within the human being, in his osseous, muscle and nervous systems (imagination, iinspiration, intuition).


In parallel, he suggests to build an installation, analogous in form to luxosphere, harmonizing spiritual Light in osseous, muscle, and nervous systems, and healing the human body. 

In his work Omar Chkhaidze tries to combine art, philosophy and science. He believes that only with Love, in the unity of science, philosophy and art, mankind can fulfil their mission on our planet. Love is the key to everything. Like gravity!

Being a boy of thirteen, at a lesson of physics, Omar declared he knew how to build a perpetuum mobile. At that time people laughed at him. Today, after 60 years, he is ready to discuss the subject.
