    Timur Novikov. White Night

    £1,250.00

    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.

In his work he presents same objects: the tree and tower, a bottle and a vase. His paintings are small in size, almost monochrome, they are peaceful and abstract, distant from sensual and emotional experiences. Its a philosophical painting, where artist’s inner world is not visual or imaginative, but is in his thoughts.

    Vladimir Shinkarev. Goethe

    £708.33

    The World Literature series by Vladimir Shinkarev reflects within a Russian context on the changes in the relationship between writing and painting, the verbal and the visual, that have taken place from classical to contemporary times. World Literature, Shinkarev’s redeployment of the verbal/visual relationship, arose and developed out of his initial inception of Mitki during the 1980s. Shinkarev, with his canvases ‘World Literature’, has also created his own personal pictorial language response, but with a profound difference. World Literature, his take on the world as text, is concerned with works, which, though richly embedded in the reality of their own time of creation, yet have a relevance that transcends their own time. They enable us to move between past, present and future through reflection on the universal themes and issues they depict that connect us one to another.

    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.
