St. Petersburg, December 27 - From January 17 to March 15, 2019 in the Abramova Gallery space in the Artplay creative cluster on Krasnogvardeiskaya Square will be held a personal exhibition of Evgeny Zaremba “The Back Side”. It will feature more than 20 works by the artist from Novosibirsk.
For Eugene Zaremba, nature is the main source of inspiration. Not realistic landscapes - mountains, water or a snowy valley, but the energy of these places. Work on his paintings Zaremba begins on the open air, where you can feel the atmosphere of a certain place. Captured by her energy, the artist expresses her on canvas in an abstract manner. Many, grown from tiny field studies, paintings, thanks to the mobilization of the visual perception of the viewer, the game of scale acquire a special power of influence.
Nature and historical places in Zaremba’s paintings take on a sacred, symbolic meaning, therefore the name of the exhibition is “The reverse side is a metaphor for unexplored experience, a breakthrough into unfamiliar territory. The unsteady nature of the image, escaping an unambiguous interpretation is the result of an almost alchemical "distillation", "purification", "thickening" of the real experience of peering. In this peculiar elixir, the painter retains an ephemeral, transient, fleeting impression, a game of reflections.
One of Yevgeny Zaremba’s key topics is the course, movement, path, the almost Taoist merging of subject and object, following the stream, the continuously changing “darkness of things”. The artist, like an adherent of the Taoist tradition, occupies an intermediate position: he is a medium connecting the “top” and “bottom”, macro- and microcosm. The authenticity and sincerity of this experience is the basis of Zaremba’s art and the main reason for its success with the viewer.
The exhibition will be held from January 17 to March 15 at the address: Krasnogvardeiskaya sq., 3, ArtPlay, 3rd floor, E3-130. Free admission. The gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 12:00 to 19:00.
