  • Phdontosov501

    Philipp Dontsov. Red Work 501. 2004. Screen print on paper

    £291.67

    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

  • Grimaces of the weary village

    RIMALDAS VIKSRAITIS

    £30.00

    RIMALDAS VIKSRAITIS. GRIMACES OF THE WEARY VILLAGE. 2012. Paperback/English, 120 pages, 50 illustrations. By Rimaldas Viksraitis, images selected by Martin ParrSlightly insane and wonderfully surreal Rimaldas Viksraitis’s images of abandonment in deepest rural Lithuania mix reportage and voyeurism to surreal and disturbing effect. His studies of drunkenness and dereliction are depressing but also display a strange beauty: 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; and, a drunk bites the ear of another drunk who is biting the ear of a pig’s head on a plate. This book is a beautifully printed testament to Viksraitiss strange, frightening and darkly humorous world.



  • Seeing through the artists hand

    Rustam Khalfin. Seeing Through the Artist’s Hand

    £14.99

    Khalfin, a Tatar, born in Tashkent (Uzbekistan), began his professional life during the stagnant Soviet era, graduating in 1972 from the Moscow Architecture Institute. In the 1980s, while residing in St Petersburg, he became involved with the circle surrounding Vladimir Sterligov – a close associate of Kasimir Malevich. It was then that Khalfin was first exposed to the richness of the Russian Avant-garde, a point of departure for his own painting. Shortly thereafter, in partnership with his wife Lydia, he began to pioneer performance art in Kazakhstan. From then Khalfin had ceaselessly experimented with a variety of media, also including painting, sculpture, installation, and video.
