“…The mental position in Gorbunov’s works is very active. The anthropologic factor in his works is rather objective than subjective. Gorbunov is fully concentrated on body representation without any sign of symbiosis of anthropologic stripe. What is more, this is a representation which saves the memetics – but in mode of mental mediations. This transparent readability and the mediacy are by nature a pattern of search articulation. The artist often uses an appropriation: the scientificity is provided by means of corresponding signs, symbols, charts and even tools. However he has his own special graphical technique. Gorbunov creates a graphic of heraldic stripe – the generalized drawn symbols seeming to secure the search area…” (Alexander Borovsky, 2017)
