At the heart of Taguti’s work is human destiny, memory and suffering, the trauma of post-imperial consciousness, the multi-layered and specific information noise in which we live in an attempt to preserve, if not human dignity, at least a human dimension.

Particularly large-scale dramas are heard in the series of scenic canvases «Trees» presented in the exhibition «ARBOR: vital form», painted on canvases in acrylic, charcoal and sanguine. Authentic, unusual, very energetic portraits of trees with no background in a metaphysical environment – no earth, no sky, trunks and branches, sometimes strongly reminiscent of the anatomy of the body with blood vessels and muscles, joints and articulations.
