    Oleg Kulik Family of The Future 1997 Photograph

    £916.67

    Oleg Kulik (born 1961 in Kiev) ranks among the most interesting and controversial Russian artists. He has managed to attract the attention of art critics and exhibition curators by his performance shows, which are characterised by “strong expression” where he himself assumes a role of “artist-animal”. In these performances Kulik becomes a dog, a bird, a fish, and a bull, simplifying his performance language to the basic emotional vocabulary of an animal.

    Olga Chernysheva Acquaintances (Moscow) 2008

    £250.00

    Moscow-based Russian artist Olga Chernysheva (Russian, b. 1962), a graduate of the Moscow Cinema Academy and the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam, captures quotidian life in post-communist Russia. Embedded within social reality, Chernyshevas photographs carry nonetheless a lyricism and beauty that tacitly transforms the ordinary scenes and sights of and around Moscow into the extraordinary, and at times, seemingly miraculous. Chernyshevas work frequently expresses a social interest in relation to how her country is changing. In her Moscow Area series she might highlight those things frequently relegated to the edges of society and consciousness, such as a group of the elderly in a home, an old lady entering a church to pray, or the queues of people entering and exiting the Moscow underground metro system. Whilst one can frequently read disillusionment, loss and isolation in Chernyshevas images, one also sees signs of life and renewal, perseverance and warmth in what they depict. Her films and photographs transcend their documentary function, investigating instead the very fabric of the individuality, stoicism and self-sufficiency of the Russian character, meditating at the same time on the role of the artist in a time of change. This photograph is an edition and part of the catalogue that accompanied accompany her exhibition at White Space Gallery in London. The catalogue is featuring over 40 images of her photographs and video stills, it includes the transcript of a conversation between Olga Chernysheva and Professor Robert Storr, as well as an introductory text to her work by Dr. Ekaterina Andreeva. The print is sold together with catalogue.

    Philipp Dontsov. Red Work 501. 2004

    £750.00

    Philipp Dontsov (b.1972) is a graduate of the Mukhina Industrial Art College in Saint Petersburg and uses the materials and technologies of product design and industrial model-making in his paintings, sculptures and installations exploring the interplay of form and light. His Red Works from 2002 are a series of paintings in polymer on aluminium depicting the human body in a photographic idiom – the figures are painted in a hyper-realistic style and the glossy surface of the polymer resembles photographic emulsion. The saturated hues of blue and red are so tonally equivalent that the images seem to shift from positive to negative in changing light or to hover between the two states in a kind of supended animation – perhaps recalling a near-death experience in the artist’s youth when he ‘died’ after a choking accident and was resucitated after thirty minutes. He has gone on to produce some of the series as screen prints – a medium which heightens the images’ luminosity and aura of spirituality.

    Rimaldas Viksraitis. This Crazy World

    £8.33

    Rimaldas Viksraitis. This Crazy World by Editions l’oeil, France

    Softback 16 X 21,3 cm, 32 pages, published in November 2017. Edition of 500

    isbn : 978-2-35137-245-6

    Viksraitis’s images of deepest rural Lithuania mix reportage and voyeurism to surreal and disturbing effect. His studies of drunkenness and dereliction are depressing but strangely beautiful: a farmer bends over a dead pig with a blowtorch, a chicken perched on his back; a young girl stares out of a window over the decapitated head of a goat; a drunk bites the ear of another drunk who is biting the ear of a pig´s head on a plate. Viksraitis’s world is by turns a frightening and darkly comic place.

  • Stas Makarov Angel St Isaak

    Stas Makarov. Angels of St Petersburg. 2014

    £1,000.00

    Stas Makarov was one of the original members of the ‘New Academy of Art’ in St Petersburg in the 1980s and 90s. This was a group of artists who rejected modernism and mined Russia’s imperial and totalitarian past, sometimes ironically, as well as Hollywood movies, western advertising, kitsch and homoerotica for classical ideals of beauty. Makarov’s ‘Angels of St Petersburg’ series of paintings, hand-coloured photographs and prints captures the faded grandeur of Russia’s imperial capital by focussing on details of architectural ornament and public sculpture.

Makarov’s ‘Angels of St Petersburg’ series of paintings, hand-coloured photographs and prints captures the faded grandeur of Russia’s imperial capital by focussing on details of architectural ornament and public sculpture. The streaky print process used here is suggestive of peeling paint, washed-up beauty, or worn out ideals.
