An exhibition of Anna Silivonchik’s painting ’Draw me a lamb’ Automatic translate
From 4 July to 1 August in the exhibition hall «Tushino» there is an exhibition of paintings by Anna Silivonchik «Draw me a lamb».
Very often, with age, gaining life experience and knowledge, we at the same time involuntarily lose something very important and priceless. We change the pure, naive, enthusiastic child perception of the world for practicality and rationalism, without even noticing it, turning into boring and boring adult uncles and aunts. Behind daily routine, business and cares we do not have time not only for illusory dreams and fantasies, admiring the sunset or the stars for the sky, but even for spending time with close people. We look for answers to vital questions in thick scientific books, not understanding that the most important thing is often impossible to understand with the mind. You can only feel it. Open heart.
This is what the series of works of the Belarusian artist Anna Silivonchik presented at the exhibition called «Draw me a lamb» tells about it. The paintings that the visitors of this exhibition will see were written as illustrations to the book «The Little Prince» by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. In the works of Anna Silivonchik, children’s immediacy and naivety are combined with the depth of philosophical thought, which is very much in tune with the writer’s work. The artist does not set herself the task to carefully and meticulously follow the text of the work. On the contrary, on the basis of what she has written, she composes her own story-stories, filling the story with new details and details, shares her own understanding of the book with us. All illustrations are made in a technique not quite usual for this kind of art - oil on canvas. The book itself will be published in early 2015 in the Kiev publishing house «Master-class».
