December 5, 2019 at the Vokhm named after I.N. Kramskoy will open the exhibition “Images of Russia. Spring, summer, autumn, winter … and spring again. ”
The exhibition was prepared by the State Museum and Exhibition Center “ROSIZO”, which this year marks the 60th anniversary of its existence. As part of the celebration, the State Museum and Exhibition Center “ROSIZO” holds anniversary exhibitions that continue to acquaint viewers with works of Russian art.
The subtitle of the exhibition, borrowed from the famous Korean director Kim Ki-duk, reveals the main theme of the exhibition – the cyclical nature of the change of seasons. Four seasons following each other are associated with birth, flowering, gradual fading, and a new revival of nature. Four seasons – four sections of the exhibition. Each season is represented by graphic sheets and ceramics.
Graphics introduces both urban and rural landscapes of Russia. Among the exhibits there are works by V.E. Popkova, G.G. Nyssky, S.M. Nikereeva. The proximity of graphics and ceramics makes it possible to compare how artists act differently, creating images in the plane of the sheet or in volume. Often the walls of porcelain and earthenware are decorated with paintings, while some elements of the image gain volume – for example, the figures of people in a vase V.V. Bulygin or insects on caskets L.A. Galkina. Interesting experiments with the shape of the products are presented in the work of N.G. Savinova in the two-part composition “Indian Summer” – a vessel and its “reflection”, which in the hands of the sculptor has gained volume.
In total, 77 works will be presented at the exhibition: graphics, painting, ceramics, enamel.
The cost of visiting the exhibition is 50 rubles for all categories of visitors.
Members of the Union of Artists (upon presentation of a certificate) – free of charge.
Photography: mobile devices, the camera (no flash) – for free.
