The exhibition presents two main lines of Ulibin's work. Despite their external differences, they are united by a common philosophical concept. The first line is a series of paintings that show the post-historical world - the result of human activities based on the principle of reckless consumption and exploitation. These paintings are like open portals to a world freed from technological civilization, in which humanity opens up completely new development paths based on self-improvement, knowledge of one’s inner potential and harmony with the Universe. This is the time when the course of the history of mankind and its meaning are rethought. Man is the most perfect thing on Earth and the potential of human capabilities is much greater than that used in the framework of modern civilization. Any, even the most high-tech machine, is for a man only a tool - a substitute for his own undisclosed abilities. Naked human on bare earth is the main motive of the compositions. Civilization and technology no longer exist, only its remnants, in the form of strange objects, once high-tech machines rise above the surface of the earth or sea, - a pile of metal, like a defeated idol of a technogenic system. The space of heaven and sea symbolizes the infinity of the universe and freedom, the same infinite. The Earth, as a renewed space, is part of the Universe, - mysterious, but at the same time open to human knowledge and giving it inspiration. Women personify the future of humanity. They are hope and inspiration, as well as a symbol of love and beauty - the beginning for the creation of a new beautiful world based on the principle of knowledge and understanding of the infinite Universe.
The second line in his work also has a deep philosophical content. Most of the works in this series are made in the schedule - coal on paper. These are compositions that are the result of my imagination, reflection and searching for answers to the main questions. They are united by the theme of the meaning of life, knowledge of the fundamental principles of being and evolutionary development. The process of comprehending the ideas for expressing them in the form of graphic or pictorial compositions has gone far beyond the scope of fine art and has become a philosophical method for studying reality. This led to the fact that it became possible to implement my creative ideas in large multi-figured paintings. So the picture “Diaries of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse” appeared. In this picture, the Apocalypse, as an emergency intervention in the course of the evolutionary-historical process, is not the end of the world, but its beginning. The Apocalypse is a moment of spiritual and intellectual enlightenment - understanding the true mission of human, as the embodiment of the mind on earth with the goal of cognition and understanding of the infinite Universe.
