The Fine Art Gallery for the first time shows an exhibition by a young artist Anastasia Kopyttseva. Her project is executed in classical technique, it is based on a painting, and lovers of plastic values will be able to enjoy luxurious, most skillful painting. At the center of most of the work is a shark, either gray or red, dynamic, its rocket-shaped body seems to be rushing forward. The general tone of the canvases is dark, graphite, but, despite this, there is a feeling of a certain glow, mirroring. This impression is reinforced by the fact that on the field of each canvas there is an image, for example, an infinite number of “pi”, Arabic or Roman numerals, binary code, QR code, etc. up to the blockchain symbol.
In total, the canvases of Anastasia Kopyttseva, as in a mirror, reflect the main discoveries in the history of the digital development of the world. However, this is only one of many meanings in the artist’s works. In her project, unexpectedly for the viewer, artistic imaginative thinking is combined with an understanding of the basic properties of a business. Its metaphors are a canvas as a mirror of the world history of significant inventions, a shark as a symbol of advanced humanity, which is rapidly transforming business and society on the basis of new discoveries. This transition from “before” to “after” occurs not evolutionarily, but abruptly. In Anastasia, this transition is made by a red shark, depicted in front of the plane of the canvas-mirror, after the discovery, the predator loses its elegant red color. And now we already see her gray in the space behind the mirror canvas. Anastasia fulfilled the dream of many - to penetrate the parallel world, through the looking glass. Note, people have long lived in two parallel realities - in the world around and virtual, this transition occurred instantly with the invention of the Internet.
All of the above corresponds to the claimed copyright concept. However, looking at the work of Anastasia Kopyttseva, you come to the conclusion that this is far from all. Her works clearly and vividly manifest processes, possibly taking place in the subconscious of the author and bursting into the canvases against the will of the artist. The red shark only with a distant look at it seems smart, it is even associated with a goldfish. Nearby, you can see wounds on the body of a shark, jets and streaks of blood. The author explains this by saying that a progressive leap is not always comfortable for society, but a different meaning seems more true. Shark - a symbol of brutal, predatory masculinity. A man rules the world, but in the fight against him, a woman sometimes severely injures him. A wounded red shark or a defeated gray one and thrown out through the looking glass are symbols of revenge on female feminists to men. Or maybe this is the revenge of a girl artist to a very specific man?
Anastasia created her magic mirrors on the canvas, showed us a parallel mirror-like space. It would be interesting to carry out the ancient rite of fortune telling - in absolute darkness, by candlelight. Who or what will come to us from the behind the looking glass of the artist besides a spent gray shark? In this direction, experiments are being conducted, the paintings are being monitored.
