November 29 at 18:30 in the Perm Art Gallery opens the exhibition "On both sides of the person", which will feature works by the Moscow artist Maria Vladimirova.
This name is new to Perm. Maria Vladimirova graduated from the faculty of painting of the Moscow State Art Institute. Surikov in 1988, a member of the Russian Union of Artists. Participates in exhibitions since 1987
The main exhibition baggage of Maria Vladimirova consists of personal and group exhibitions devoted to Russian contemporary art in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ukraine, Bulgaria, France, Italy, and the USA.
Maria Vladimirova is an artist whose work combines the traits and searches of a generation of artists of the 1980s, which is connected with the art of nonconformists of the early 1970s by invisible threads. The famous collector and explorer of art of the second half of the XX century. Alexander Glezer notes that one of the works of Vladimirova was acquired by the famous collector of unofficial Russian art, Professor Norton Dodge, for the Zimmerly Museum, one of the largest university museums in the United States, and Vladimir Nemukhin and other classical artists of Russian art of the second half of the 20th century, as today nonconformists are called. ”
Now the work of Maria Vladimirova will join the collection of the Perm Art Gallery. This gift of the artist and the exhibition is dedicated.
Here are more than thirty works. Among the graphic works there are valuable episodes of the biography of the artist. So, in the children’s drawing of the period of apprenticeship in an art school is an unusual picture of the holiday of November 7. The teacher - a famous artist, who later became famous as the founder of social art, Vitaly Koumar - gave the task to depict a national holiday without resorting to bright colors, using only plastic and plot techniques. The result was a composition that was unexpected for a child’s consciousness, which made Masha Vladimirov a favorite student of a teacher.
A separate “island” is a graphic cycle of the 1980s dedicated to Georgia. These are linear black ink drawings on white paper, which are distinguished by the elasticity and liveliness of the line, the ability to grab the character of the character and convey it in a few lines. Georgia in the author’s reflection of the artist appears as a part of the earthly, lived-in space, where gray antiquity and modernity are inseparable. This connection of times is transformed by the artist into images of paintings, completely different in style than graphics. It is in the paintings that form the basis of the exposition that the main statement of the artist is concluded.
“I am interested in various religions, beliefs, symbolism of myths,” says Maria Vladimirova. The color structure of many of her paintings is based on a comparison of black and white. At the same time, black, thanks to rich textures, splits into many complex shades, becoming pictorial. Color appears as a symbol of eternity. In the pictorial structure of the works, along with permanent images - a white bird, a bowl - there are elements of ancient ornaments, ancient vessels, graphic symbols that refer to ancient mythology. The author often introduces fragments of texts into pictures, uses the semantics of color - gold and bronze, methods of assemblage. Objects from earthly life do not just go beyond the limits of everyday life, they balance on the border of the material and the intangible. In the paintings of Vladimir, symbolic subtext and philosophical detachment are combined with deep emotionality, and the accuracy of compositional decisions is combined with decorativeness.
The exhibition will run until the end of January 2019.
