After he has experienced the first (sensuous!) mystery of painting, a spectator always willy-nilly begins to think of what is the subject of image? Where is the plot? The series of "Homes" appeared as though by chance, when an artist was finishing large series of pyramids of cycle "Presence". But, as known, there are no chances in art. The powerful form of a Ukrainian hut, wich is an inheritance of generations, is represented as an archetype of home, as a reference point of man's life and at the same time point of destination. The artist experienced its secret and comprehended as given. From time immemorial a hut is part of Ukrainian landscape as a traditional accommodation of Ukrainian peasants. Today it symbolizes singularity in the context of global urbanization and unification. It is a sign of Ukrainian and a code to self-identification. In the conditions of crisis of identity the artist aims to find spiritual support in this simple form. Reference to the centuries-old cultural layer does not burden a picture, but gives depth to her. In fact, Petro Bevza enciphers a new actual riddle in immemorial form.
After the first sensuous impression had already passed and a viewer discussed the subject of an image, always there is a question: "How it works"? It is the third secret of Petro Bevza. The impressive depth and complexity of color, its quality as a physical thing, its tactility and sensuality are the results of long working on the method of painting technology. In Renaissance Europe the quality of color in a picture was really equated with jewellery. Petro Bevza accepts the challenge of the best masters of Renaissance by trying to comprehend color and texture as the main criterion of professionalism and also as means of artistic expressiveness in new context. Remaining the professional of high class, he creates the new secret of color, his own.
Even the pioneer of avant-garde music Arnold Schoenberg emphasized on the necessity of creation of own secret in art. He wrote: "It is very important, that our creative spirit makes riddles like those, that are around us. Our idea should try not to solve but to decipher them. So we must obtain not the solution of a riddle, but new method of enciphering and decoding". Thus three secrets of Petro Bevza turn his painting into drama for the Great mystery between a viewer and a painting.
