The most interesting works include the ensemble of sculptures for an open-air exhibition in France, presented by Pierre Cardin in Lacoste near Avignon and in Paris on the Champs Elysees.
Founder and director of the Moscow State Museum "House of Burganov", which has become a cultural center that implements the idea of synthesizing the arts - architecture, sculpture, music, theater.
Alexander Burganov has a happy creative biography, it reflects the epochs and artistic styles that replaced each other from the mid-20th century to the present.
In each of these periods Burganov occupied a significant place. He is deservedly considered both an artist of “severe style” for laconicism and monumentality of forms, and a master of realistic portraiture, whose school is based on the best traditions of Russian plastic art. Burganov is a postmodernist who creates expressive metaphorical images in the synthesis of modernity and ancient classics. Burganov is undoubtedly one of the most striking surrealists of our time, easily transforming forms for the sake of the sharp artistic expression of new realities.
In this versatility, absolute creative freedom, since in all cases the artist is not just in the artistic stream of time, but is distinguished by a bright personal artistic style and creative method. No wonder the phrase “Burgan school of composition” has become a stable term in art history practice and higher art educational institutions of the country where the art of sculpture is studied and taught.
Among the achievements of Burganov is the creation of a special genre in plastic composition. He is the author of such a unique phenomenon as “sculpture - gesture”, passing through almost all the symbolic images of this outstanding master.
The sculptor’s plastic vocabulary was formed at the very beginning of his career and practically did not change for more than half a century.
In various works, monumental and easel compositions, a key symbolic image of the hand is presented as a symbol of creativity (“Big Hand”), pride and resistance (“Gesture”), the Voice of God (“Angel”), and request (“The Pauper”).
Another important topic is the cell, which is expressed in several plastic guises as a boundary - the shell of an anthropomorphic image (“Soul”) and as a lattice structure, the purpose of which is to organize time, form, phenomenon (“ABC of the Deaf”, “Sunday evening”), as prohibition topic (Flying Bird in a Cage).
The theme of the elements and the masculine principle is expressed by the images of horses (“War” - fighting horses, “Ecology”, “Muse” - lyrical touch of a girl’s head to a horse’s head, “Future” - a boy on a foal).
Freedom, aspiration, inspiration expresses the image of a flying bird or a single wing, symbolizing these images even more concentrated and bright.
A particularly expressive element of the master’s unique artistic style was the dynamically developing folded structures present in many compositions. These metaphors of the passage of time, the conjugation of the mountain world and the world of the lower, the images of the movement of memory make A. Burganov’s magical realism especially vivid.
Today, when sculptural monuments have become the embodiment of history in the space of cities, sculptures - the gestures of Alexander Burganov fill squares, parks, museums and exhibition halls with new sensual poetic and artistic images.
