    Timur Novikov. Sunrise over the Sea

    £1,166.67

    Novikov revisits the Russian folk motifs in the style of his textile pieces by placing small iconic symbols (purposefully generalised, reduced and simplistic images) in large fields of flat, often bright, colour. His method of re-arranging, altering and proposing new semantic representation, use of symmetry and a horizontal (more rarely diagonal), division of space, became the new art language, adapting a three-dimensional world onto a flat surface, in a manner resonant of modern computer graphics or ancient hieroglyphics. Made during the perestroika years, the Horizons series reflects the youthful and optimistic spirit of the times whilst demonstrating the artist’s penchant for open perspectives – new possibilities of imagination and vision, the enlarged horizon, the greater hope.

    Vladimir Shinkarev. Mitki

    £500.00

    Mitki. Lithograph. 1999. 40x40cm. This print shows a man in a stripy military shirt, drinking from a bottle, alongside Mikhail Lermontov and Aleksandr Pushkin. These two Russian 19th-century poets who criticised the politics of their time were heroes of the Mitki. The group’s emphasis was on creative, individual integrity, and on depicting the mundane reality of life. Instead of offering a view of the idealised communism of the Socialist Realists, the Mitki focused on everyday subjects with gentle, self-deprecating humour. This lithograph is drawn in the manner of a lubok, a popular Russian satirical print. It is expressive of Shinkarev’s own humorous style, and of the Mitki concern with ‘intentionally shabby images of crude everyday reality, with the aesthetic of hard drinking bouts and four-letter words…’ (Lydia Ginzburg). Vladimir Shinkarev (b. 1954) is a founder member of the Mitki group, a St Petersburg collective of artists. They first appeared in 1984, and work in a variety of media, from music and publishing to writing and film-making. His works are in the collections of the V&A Museum

    Vladlen Gavrilchik. Boggy Man (Ataman Byaka)

    £291.67

    Vladlen Gavrilchik was born in 1929 in Uzbek town Termez. Gavrilchik was inspired by drawing from his school days. His stepmother secretly enrolled him in an art school. Later Gavrilchik went on to graduate from the Suvorov Naval School in Tashkent in 1947 and Naval School in Leningrad in 1951. He began painting in Leningrad in the early 1950s. The emerging artist attended drawing studios, studied art movements, visited museums and exhibitions, and had personal contacts with artists. His encounter with Mikhail Tsibasov, student of Pavel Filonov had an important influence on him. He works in painting, graphics, photography, art objects and poetry. Folk narratives are distinctive in his poetry. In his painting and poetry Gavrilchik reveals the process and essence of creativity with light irony.

    Yuri Avvakumov. Tribune for a Leninist

    £1,250.00

    Yuri Avvakumov is a founding member and theorist-in-chief of a group of Russian conceptual artists called the ‘Paper Architects’. This group graduated from the Moscow Architecture Institute in the early 1980s and, frustrated by the conservatism of their profession in Russia and the shortage of funds for new building, they turned instead to entering competitions sponsored by western and Japanese architectural journals, where their fantastic and unrealiseable schemes won them international acclaim. The term ‘Paper Architecture’ was a derogatory one applied to the unrealistic dreams of the revolutionary avant-garde of the early twentieth century. Tribune for a Leninist – up-to-date reconstruction/modernization of the Lenin’s Tribune (El Lissitzky, 1924). Instead of a personal elevator there is more dynamic (and democratic) stairway. Yuri Avvakumov’s prints are in the collections of the V&A Museum, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris and MOMA, NY
