The key images in this work are a lattice with glass of a modern shopping mall and an advertising display of a young man with a watch on his hand, with an old house reflected on him. It combines architectural elements of the past — the Empire style with details of antiquity — with neoclassicism and modern advertising. This is a composition from the meeting of two epochs, which reminds the viewer of the saying of the ancient philosopher Theophrastus: "Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.” Time is of great importance to us, and it measures our earthly life. We are reminded of these restrictions by the large lattice, which sets restrictions, and it does not allow us to see the young man and the details of the old house. Also, the advertising image of a trendy watch implies that there are many fleeting things. And only art carries the idea of eternal values. It differs from fashion in that its masterpieces are not written for the sake of temporary fame. They arise simply from the heart, often without hope of reward. But only with time do masterpieces become priceless in their value. Perhaps this work should be called Art Is Always Trendy!
