    Timur Novikov. Sun. 1989

    £1,000.00

    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.

    Vladimir Shinkarev

    £416.67

    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.

    Yuri Avvakumov. Red Galley. 1989

    £1,666.67

    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. Red Galley – functions as an agitprop wagon too – is a galley for 40 oarsmen and one lookout/helmsman. Each seat provided with an oar, and each oar passes through the construction of the wagon wall. When oarsmen begin rowing in concert (on command), the galley begin to swing inside the wagon, thus turning into a menacing battering ram.
