“ALEXANDER SEMENTSOV. PAIN SYNDROME”. A series of works dedicated to the War in Abkhazia 1992–1993

Artist Alexander Sementsov was born in Kerch, Crimea, just before the Great Patriotic War broke out in 1941. Sementsov witnessed the armed conflict between Georgian and Abkhazian forces in 1992 during a short visit to his motherland. This experience transformed his self-identification as a person and as an artist, having mobilized formerly dormant creative resources.
