The premiere of the series of paintings by Nikolay Cherednichenko is dedicated to the mystical phenomenon "duende". "Duende is the national creative identity of Spain, something that dominated Lorca and Picasso when they created their best works. "Duende" is a passion and creation,
a premonition of death and a break in the usual forms in the collection of new ones.
Nikolay Cherednichenko expresses the phenomenon of "duende" in the form
of a nervous pulsation, the tension of continuous becoming. He refuses from the spatial coordinate system in his artworks; the artist translates the plastic language of the “duende” series of paintings into the metaphysical one. His non-objective creativity draws the viewer to the Universal. The symbol and expression of "duende" in the paintings of Nikolay Cherednichenko becomes a rhizome. The rhizome is organic, has no center, is neither unity nor multiplicity, and has the character of an absent structure, eliminating the possibility of unity of the code.
