Ivan Plusch traditionally uses the art of painting to express existential maxims. His art is about the flow of time, though he doesn't use video – you can't shoot, after all, an endless film.

Ivan Plusch traditionally uses the art of painting to express existential maxims. His art is about the flow of time, though he doesn't use video – you can't shoot, after all, an endless film.
