Art Project "Seeing The Invisible"
The artwork «Bureaucracy» (part of the Art Project «Seeing The Invisible») makes reference to a theme which Karl Marx, John Stuart Mill, Max Weber and many other authors theorized about. Despite the fact that government administrations (bureaucracies) are necessary and do have merits, the word «bureaucracy» has developed negative connotations, since being coined, and is frequently associated with inefficiency, convolution, inflexibility, and dehumanization.
We can hardly see the invisible; for example, those children’s puzzles which have objects hidden in a picture. We saw none of these things until we really began searching for them in unlikely places. They had been invisible to us, but before long we began to see the invisible.
In her book «Exploring the Invisible: Art, Science, and the Spiritual», Lynn Gamwell shows how modern science has transformed modern art and reveals that the world beyond the naked eye - made visible by advances in science - has been a major inspiration for artists ever since.
In his book «Seeing the Invisible», Michel Henry uncovers the philosophical significance of Wassily Kandinsky’s revolution in painting: that abstract art reveals the invisible essence of life and overturns our conceptions about art, because it seeks to express the internal aspect of phenomena, in other words, to paint the invisible.

Artist Diana Malivani, who by her training and profession, is a Doctor of Medicine (M.D., Ph.D.), is represented by internationally reputable art galleries. Her works regularly appear in prestigious exhibitions and compete in art contests in several countries, are published in international art journals, offered for sale on leading online art marketplaces, listed by auction houses, and held in the collections of both national museums and private collectors throughout the world.
The Artist’s creative journey began at birth: Diana was born on the coast of the Black Sea, bathed in the riotous profusion of the colors of the Caucasus. Her love as a child for fairy tales and pictures later developed into a desire to convey, to those hearing and viewing her work, the great feeling for nature which enhances her life and the lives of those she loves.
Diana’s paintings reflect her soul, her love for music and nature, for an infinite variety of melodies and sounds, for shades and colors, for all that nature creates: the rustling of wet leaves and the first rays of dawn, the roar of the sea surf and the scent of a flowering meadow, the flight of screeching gulls and dewdrops on a blossoming rose... As she draws flowers and depicts landscapes (the principal themes of her artwork), deals with marine subjects, creates abstract compositions, and transfers music to canvas (one of the Artist’s main Art Projects bears the name «Seeing Music»), Diana strives to share these feelings with others, to share with others a part of her soul.
Diana Malivani is also the author and illustrator of children’s books published in Russian, English, French and German. After many years spent in Europe (especially, in France and in Cyprus), Diana returned to Russia and she now lives with her family in Saint Petersburg.
