  • Memoirs of Alexander Maley:

  • "In the work of V. Schastny, two seemingly opposite sides are originally combined - folk and spiritual art - with the constructivism of the Russian avant-garde. In the "pre-square" period in his work, this happened separately. Soil addictions were realized through traditional realism, albeit with their own plastic face, and the constructivist beginnings were realized in abstract form creation.The first work in which, from my point of view, the artist finally found an aesthetic reconciliation with his worldview, was a work dedicated to the national holiday of Ivan Kupala, presented in 1988 at an exhibition dedicated to 110- the anniversary of the birth of K. Malevich Here the artist came to the aesthetics of the sign, rightly discovering the connection between folk symbolism and the cosmic origin of the sign in general.

  • Any sign has a constructive structure, and the artist skillfully combined its artistic design with the spiritual essence of the origin. During his stay in the "Square" Valery in his work managed to create a unique metaphysical synthesis of the sign, construction and spirit, which I would define as "sign constructivism". From my point of view, this is a rather original example of modern rethinking of the historical heritage. His constructivism is unlike anything, both from the point of view of the constructivist tendencies of Tatlin and Rodchenko (in the classical definition of their work), and from the point of view of contemporary concrete-constructive art.

  • Undoubtedly, Shchastny's sign constructivism gravitates more toward the concretely constructive, since it contains the concrete (sign), but the metaphysical and spiritual basis of sign-vision makes his works more mysterious and spiritualized, and therefore different. The artist himself structures the signs, creating his own world, a world of mystery, hope and transcendent knowledge.

  • The metaphysical aesthetics of UNOVIS, the work of the original Belarusian artist Yazep Drozdovich, the symbolism of folk art, the cosmic pictogram of historical signs - this is what formed the artist in the "square" period . and Minsk (1987–2000), 188 pp.
