Valera and Natasha Cherkashin work with deeply rooted social archetypes - universal symbols of human existence. They are interested in the presence and development of these eternal archetypes of human civilization in the present, in real life.
Lately, their attention is drawn to apocalyptic problems - the fate of humanity burdened by the knowledge of tragedies and disasters. Terrestrial civilization in the third millennium is truly experiencing a fantastic fracture and the Cherkashins can feel its powerful "tragic roar." They do not know what it is, they cannot rationally explain the underlying tectonic shifts that they perceive - they transform their intuitive comprehension into forms of art.
