“Forest” is the name of the new project by the famous Krasnodar artist Vladimir Migachev, which ARTSTORY Gallery will show from April 11 to May 26, 2019. The viewer will have to dive into the total installation of the master, who is most interested in the space that surrounds us all; worried about how the landscape reflects what is happening in post-ecological society.
The main part of the “Forest” project will be large-scale pictorial canvases measuring 2, 8 by 1, 5 meters. “Column trees bearing the dome of the temple of nature is an archetypical image reflected in temple architecture from ancient times and in sacred texts that lie at the origins of our cultural code... Combined into a single solemn ensemble, these works help the artist to create an image of forests, which, according to the stable expression, "must be seen behind the trees," that is, a meaningful whole, hidden behind isolated phenomena. (Mikhail Ovchinnikov).
This is a kind of portraits. "Portraits of the landscape." Answers to questions about the world and the person who creates it daily-destroys it with their own hands: about those abandoned houses or entire villages that are not difficult to find in the suburban forests; about whether trees without foliage die or are reborn.
The forest is always somewhere nearby. You can overlook it, you can simply get used to the monotonous landscape - just the one that we see on many Migachev’s canvases.
“This is not even sadness, anxiety, longing, - this is disappointment. I read somewhere: “Why in Russia landscape design is done from home to the fence? Probably because the fence is not our space? ”A forest is also not our space, judging by the consumer attitude towards it!” Says the author.
Visitors to Vladimir Migachev’s exhibitions, which were held in the ARTSTORY Gallery - “Internal Migration” (2018), “Edge. Diary of Observations ”(2016),“ Middle Band ”(2014) - we could see more than once that every project, every work is the result of disturbing reflections and observations of the artist about the conflict between man and nature.
The artist does not invite us for a walk (in his works there is almost no human figures), he literally immerses the viewer into the space of the Forest, leaving himself to understand the meanings and emotions invested by the author in one or another work.
In his canvases, Vladimir Migachev uses a unique author’s painting technique. Often, in addition to paints, coal, ash, or quartz sand are on the canvas. The new exhibition will present a total installation, where the trunks of trees move from the canvases to the floor, erasing the boundaries and metaphorically pushing the gallery space.
