On November 23, at 16:00, the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts (103 Lenin Street, second floor) will open the exhibition “The Magic World of Anatoly and Zinaida Timofeev” as part of the annual exhibition project “We remember your names. Creativity of the oldest artists of the Kaluga region ".
The exhibition presents the creative heritage of two artists, their paintings, which were created over the decades. Immediately it should be noted that the authors are better known as mural artists. They jointly made paintings in the Oka restaurant, in the Kaluga hotel, the regional psychiatric hospital, the VG Belinsky library, in the Cosmos cinema, in the philharmonic society, and sgraffito in Obninsk. These remarkable murals and mosaics, which invariably attracted attention, in most cases no longer exist. An obvious paradox is that monumental art is potentially durable, but the will of the customer, the owner of the interior design, is able to destroy them for a variety of reasons. This is the tragedy of the artist, leaving him only sad memories.
Timofeevs were participants of city, regional and regional exhibitions, and Zinaida was several times the winner of the A. Kulikov Prize / nomination “painting” /. However, the paintings they made were not always in plain sight, but rather spread out over museum vaults and private collections. For this reason, today it is difficult to imagine the total amount of work performed by artists. Perhaps, only the painting “After the Rain” by A. Timofeev, written in 1966 and long being in the museum exposition, became widely known due to its lyricism.
The works of Anatoly and Zinaida Timofeev are clearly distinguished by their originality among the works in most of which fill in group exhibitions. They are evidence of their undoubted talent and imaginative perception of everyday life, with its sometimes tragic turns. The artist speaks with a brush much more than he can express in words, and this is his clear advantage. He makes you think.
The paintings created by spouses Timofeev represent their bright trace in modern artistic culture, not limited by the city or region. Culture is as indivisible as everything that distinguishes the universe.
The exhibition will run until January 13.
