July 13 at 16-00 in the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts (ul. Lenin, 103, second floor) will open the exhibition of Sergei Zhukov. Painting.
Sergei Alexandrovich Zhukov was born in August 1970 in the city of Belgorod-Dniester in the artist’s family. He graduated from art school under the guidance of his father, Alexander Petrovich Zhukov. After school, the young man was in search of himself, his life path, he knew various aspects of life.
In the 90s difficult years of perestroika, Sergey Zhukov rethought life values and formed as a person. During this period, he moved from Belgorod-Dniester to his father’s homeland in the village of Wet Yards of the Khvastovichi District of the Kaluga Region, converted to Orthodoxy under the leadership of the Optina Elders, and engaged in peasantry.
At the age of 33, Sergey Zhukov begins to paint his paintings, inspired by the poetry of the expanses of the Central Russian strip, the calm colors of the landscape. Landscape is a favorite genre to which the artist has devoted himself. The smell of grass, the rustle of the wind in the leaves, the murmur of a stream, the sound of waves, the creak of snow on a hard frost - you can almost feel it all physically, looking at the paintings by Sergey Zhukov. The lack of sharpness, dissonant contrasts characteristic of contemporary art, helps to achieve harmony of the picturesque space.
At 36, Sergei Zhukov graduated from the Odessa Art School named after M. B. Grekov (the teacher in painting is Yusim S. R., and according to the drawing, Likholet A. K.). After graduation, the artist lived and successfully worked in Odessa in the genres of landscape painting, marina, and portraiture. But the main theme of his work was the landscape of the Central Russian strip. The main teacher and mentor in the work of Sergey Zhukov throughout his life is his father, whose paintings the artist grew up.
Today Sergey Alexandrovich lives and works in the village of Wet Yards of the Khvastovichi District of the Kaluga Region. He is a regular participant in international exhibitions. His works are in private collections and galleries in Italy, Germany, the USA and Russia.
The exhibition runs until August 12th.
