Phantoms of Hellas is a painting belonging to the series “Memory of cities” by Roman Nogin.
Roman Nogin gave “the “imprint of time in space” to all these pictures of this series. But, in “Unborn prince” the compositions plays with the symbols of art, architecture, nature, and the spirit of the society of different eras. Here, it represents the concentration of the history of civilization. These symbolic forms create unexpected connections. Meanwhile, they give off romanticism and an irresistible connection between the place, time, epoch, society, art, and nature. However, the images are rather abstract in essence, even if they are written realistically. They form an associative series, to call for independent reading and to give birth to a new vision, not attached to my view, for each viewer.
