November 24, 2015 at 17. 00 in the halls of the Russian Academy of Arts at: ul. Prechistenka, 21 opens an exhibition of works by corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Arts Karina Nazarova «Island of Painting».
The exposition included more than 70 paintings created in the 1990s and 2015.
Pictures of K. Nazarova with their powerful energy, sharp, sometimes dramatic vision of the world immediately attract the eye, make you think and empathize. She is worried about the eternal problems of being, which she embodies with genuine skill into a complex artistic form. Expression and conciseness of the composition, where there are no unnecessary details and everyday details, a dense pictorial brushstroke, sharp broken lines - over the years of Nazarova’s creativity developed her own individual style.
In 1973 she graduated from the Moscow Polygraphic Institute. Since 1977 - a member of the Union of Artists. Participated in numerous exhibitions in Russia and abroad. Works in different genres: a composition picture, a portrait, a still-life.
The artist’s genuine interest is evoked by the spiritual theme, only in the last two or three years she created full dramatic works: «Peter’s Renunciation,» «Expulsion from Paradise,» «Rebecca and Jacob,» «Joseph and His Brothers.» They show a passionate obsession with the world of evangelical stories, and the desire to understand them, to experience and rethink from the point of view of modern man. Art historian N. Ivanov writes: «Most of the paintings of spiritual content refer the viewer not so much to the images and subjects of the Bible as to the author’s inner world, to the vicissitudes and dramas of the surrounding reality.»
Thin empathy for his destitute heroes, who were on the sidelines of life, imbued with the artist’s paintings: «The Man with the Red Dog», «Loneliness», «The Sadness of a Winter Day,» «Homeless,» «The Old Woman at the Station.» Often the character of his scale fills the entire space of the canvas. Ultimate expression of feelings is manifested in the expressive gestures of the characters, both in the acute character of the facial expression and in the nervous space of pictures filled with anxious sensations. A special, piercing note introduces the work of Nazarova theme of the circus, carnival, wandering theater.
Among the artist’s favorite genres are compositional portraits of outstanding artists: Van Gogh, El Greco, Giotto, Michelangelo, Vrubel, Coco Chanel, Edith Piaf, whose work helped overcome all life’s hardships.
Contentful still lifes of K. Nazarova - intense genre scenes, where objects indirectly, through a complex associative series, reflect human relations and feelings.
According to prof. V. Zhukova, «Nazarova’s painting is a never-ending passionate cycle, revealing the essence of everyone’s life. Passionate not only when she addresses the biblical characters, but also when she writes the bottom of the surrounding life, when she writes about her own everyday life, her close types and heroes... «.
