July 15 at 11-00 in the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts (103 Lenin St.) will be the solemn opening of the exhibition of the Honored Artist of Russia Vasily Igorevich Nesterenko "Russia. Historical and spiritual boundaries. "
With the work of the People’s Artist of Russia, academician of the Russian Academy of Arts Vasily Nesterenko, the residents of Kaluga have already met. A year ago, his impressive, monumental, interior-lighted works were presented in the red and blue halls of the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts. And here again a meeting with the works of Vasily Nesterenko at the exposition "Russia. Historical and spiritual boundaries, "which, like the previous one, is dedicated to our Motherland.
Vasily Igorevich Nesterenko is called the "artist of the Russian idea", a conductor of the Russian and Orthodox in the modern society of our country and the world as a whole. His paintings are deeply patriotic, permeated with love for Russia, its beautiful nature, historical monuments and shrines.
The painter is one of the most gifted contemporary Russian authors. It is a bright master, possessing a multifaceted talent, individuality, consonant with the present. Being an artist of the classical direction and having a full academic education, he boldly undertakes large-scale works in various genres. In the list of his works, historical paintings, temple paintings, portraits, landscapes, still lifes. Each of his work is unique and, as the audience notes, gives a powerful positive energy.
In the creative piggy bank of the People’s Artist of Russia Vasily Nesterenko more than a thousand works, most of them have impressive dimensions. This time, the paintings of Kaluga will be presented, reflecting the nature of the Far East and Altai, partially included in the series "Russia’s Frontiers", as well as a new series of works "Syrian Land".
The artist’s paintings reflect his inner world. What does it mean for him to love his Motherland? It is to know its history, to know its geography, to love the people who inhabit Russia. In addition to the splendid landscapes of Sakhalin and Altai, at the exhibition "Russia. Historical and spiritual milestones "portraits" The Guardian of Altai "," Alone with Yourself ", triptych" Echo of War "are shown. The picture "Unconquered" from the triptych "Echo of War" depicts the hero of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, who passed his military path under combat fire from Stalingrad to Kenisberg - Yuri Alexandrovich Fomichev. In another part of the triptych - "Sister of Mercy" - depicts the brave nurse Lydia Sergeevna Bushueva, who also ended the war with the fascists in Kenisberg. These are the real "Heroes of our time". Triptych is the worship of the artist to the heroes of the past war.
But the artist paid tribute to the defenders of Russia’s interests in the series of paintings "Syrian land", which are located in a separate room. Vasily Nesterenko received a unique opportunity to learn about the war in Syria not with the words of the people who visited them, but see everything with their own eyes. During the time that was given to him by the Ministry of Defense, he managed to visit the liberated cities, where peaceful life is just starting to be established and where people return, live in garrisons with our military men, and feel their hard everyday life. He was able to persuade the command to allow him to participate in the flight to the distant garrison, which was located directly on the border with the positions of the IGIL and where the fighting was going on. There the idea of the central picture of this exhibition "Letter to the enemies of Russia" was born. This picture reminds us of the famous painting by Repin "The Zaporozhians are writing a letter to the Turkish sultan." Different times, different characters, and Russia’s enemies are still the same. And they do not get any less. And as in the past, the representatives of all the peoples of our country are at war with them.
The artist also visited the pearl of the East - the long-suffering Palmyra. This barbarically destroyed ancient city will appear before the audience in the triptych "Syrian land". They will see what has become of the ancient polis and what the bandits have turned into a new modern city built next to it.
In addition to the monumental canvases, other works of the master will be presented at the exhibition, written on the impressions received as a result of this dangerous trip.
That’s how in the artist’s work, the past is projected into the present, the present into the past, turning into large-scale, figuratively convincing works of art, in which the connection of times and the connection of generations are visually discernible.
