The exhibition includes about 40 works made in the technique of oil painting: portraits, landscapes, still lifes, genre compositions. Their authors are famous Russian artists Konstantin Miroshnik and Natalia Kurguzova-Miroshnik. They call their own style “realism with an admixture of modernism”. Their pictures always cause the audience a whole range of experiences and feelings. Works by Natalia and Konstantin were exhibited in the leading museums of the country and abroad, including in Moscow, St. Petersburg, New York, Vienna, and are also kept in domestic and foreign private collections.
Konstantin Miroshnik and Natalia Kurguzova-Miroshnik are an unusual married couple of painters. Many canvases are written by them together, in four hands. They do not have any creative disputes - both are students of the great Ilya Glazunov. “We are looking in the same direction and love the same painting: Serov, Repin, Surikov. These are our benchmarks on which we rely, ”they say. It is important that from the very beginning of their creative journey, artists have been looking for a source of their inspiration and creativity in high spiritualism of art, in Christian culture, in Orthodoxy.
The Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture of Ilya Glazunov became for both the alma-mater and the place that united them into a creative and family union. Before this meeting in Moscow, everyone had his own path to art. Natalya - our compatriot - was born and raised in Kaluga and from childhood dreamed of becoming an artist. Parents - Evgenia Ivanovna and Vladimir Alexandrovich - strongly supported this aspiration. They gave me to the art studio, then to the art school for children in the class of the famous watercolor master Georgy Gerasimov in Kaluga. And believing in the talent of her daughter, they were not afraid to let go of one at a very young age to study at the Moscow Secondary Art Boarding School at the Institute. V.I. Surikov. Acquaintance and communication with Ilya Glazunov (Natalya studied with his daughter Vera) was decisive for the development of the young artist. She received her higher artistic education at the Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture of Ilya Glazunov. In order to go there, we had to overcome the persistent principled conviction of the master that a woman has no place in art. The girls took only three - including Natalia. During these years, it is formed as a serious artist, turning to complex, sometimes tragic themes from the history of Russia.
Konstantin was born in Simferopol into a military family. He graduated with honors from the Pedagogical School in Yuryev-Polsky, receiving a specialty as a teacher of drawing and drawing. For several years he worked as a teacher in a rural school in Ukraine. Entered the Academy of Ilya Glazunov, having sustained a huge competition - about 100 people per place. In his student years, he was led to participate in the painting of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior (his fresco "The Last Judgment" is located directly above the entrance to the temple), as well as in the design of the Grand Kremlin Palace.
An important assessment of the work and talents of Konstantin and Natalia was their participation in the exhibition of I.S. Glazunov and his students in Manezh. The first President of Russia, Boris Yeltsin, was delighted with Natalia’s painting work in the grisaille technique. In 1997, Natalia and Konstantin successfully completed their studies at the Academy.
One of the first works of young artists - the equestrian ceremonial portrait “Prince Vladimir Monomakh” was presented for the 50th anniversary to the President of Russia Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, and still adorns the President’s reception in the Kremlin. This event was a serious recognition of the talent of artists.
According to Konstantin Miroshnik, as an artist, he took place thanks to two people - Ilya Glazunov and rock musician Alexander Barykin, whose friendship began in 1991. Konstantin himself composes songs, playing them with a guitar.
As he himself says: “I am the vocalist and songwriter of the Morning Monet group.” It was organized by my friend Alexander Barykin. This is a wonderful, extraordinary person, to whom I owe not only my musical, but also artistic creativity. ” In fairness it should be added that, under the influence of Constantine, Alexander Barykin was seriously interested in painting.
At the opening day of the exhibition - the first in Kaluga - Konstantin promises to present not only his pictorial, but also musical creativity.
The exhibition will run until June 2.
