    Stas Makarov. Angels of St Petersburg

    £750.00

    Angels of St Petersburg 2014. Digital print on watercolour paper. 65 x 43 cm. Edition of 10. Stas Makarov was one of the original members of the ‘New Academy of Art’ in St Petersburg in the 1980s and 90s.

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. His prints are in the collection of the V&A Museum, London

    Timur Novikov & Joseph Brodsky. Horizons

    £10.00

    Horizons features unpublished dialogue between leading figure of the St Petersburg underground art scene, Timur Novikov, and eminent Russian poet and  Nobel Prize winner, Joseph Brodsky. Their meeting in Amsterdam in 1993 (on the occasion of Novikov’s retrospective exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum) resulted in a fascinating and erudite exchange, reflecting a reciprocal network of cultural and autobiographical references to St Petersburg as a city “on the edge” – an intersection where Western and Eastern cultural traditions met. The book pairs poems by Joseph Brodsky with textiles and silkscreens by Timur Novikov. Edited by Dominik Czechowski, curator of the Horizons exhibition.

  • HouseSteppe

    Timur Novikov. House in Steppe

    £416.67

    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.

    Timur Novikov. Lost Ideals of Happy Childhood

    £1,250.00

    When in famous speech at the 1st Congress of writers Maxim Gorky explained the essence of socialist realism as depicting the reality not only in the way it is but also in the way it should be, he became the founder of socialist idealism…After the collapse of Soviet system it was quickly destroyed: cheerful pioneer songs were forgotten, pioneer campuses were destroyed as well as invaluable sculptures decorating architectural ensembles of those ideal country world…While working on the Lost ideals series I tried to find pictures of sculptures which were ruthlessly destroyed in the post-Soviet period. These pictures show us the atmosphere of the communist idealism free from social struggles and problems which worried adults in that time. Spectators who contemplated those sculptures were supposed to live in a new ideal world. Those works continued the tradition of classic ancient sculpture and now, in the end of 20th century we can safely call them tradition. (Text by Timur Novikov). Several prints from these series are in the collection of V&A Museum, London
