September 1 at 16.00 in the Voronezh Regional Art Museum. I.N. Kramskoy will open the personal exhibition of Andrei Dubov “The World of Simple Things”.
Andrey Dubov is an artist who has his own deep philosophy, sets complex pictorial tasks and knows how to find their expressive solutions. The work of the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation Andrey Dubov is associated with the consistent development of the key categories of painting: color, composition, space. The range of topics, which was determined in the early stages of the artist’s work, is distinguished by constancy: it is a landscape, a still life, a portrait in an interior. Already in the years of study at the Moscow Polygraphic Institute under the guidance of the Full Member of the Russian Academy of Arts A.V. Vasnetsov, Andrei Dubov mastered the painting program of his mentor, the famous muralist, whose work became a bright and significant phenomenon in Soviet painting of the 1960-80s.
One of the cycles of Dubov’s works is dedicated to the beauty of the world of simple things that surround a person in everyday life. The author reveals the originality of habitual life, where in each picture a complex compositional and pictorial task is posed and purposefully solved, revealing new plastic and meaningful facets of the still life genre. This decision is also typical for works where the still life is organically included in the interior space. A special harmony of color solutions and constructiveness of the compositional system distinguishes his work. The chamber content of the master’s works, often devoted to ordinary and outwardly inconspicuous motifs, is embodied in a laconic, but always refined in its simplicity, pictorial language.
The exposition presents 31 works: landscapes, scenes in the interior, still lifes, which reveal the variety of pictorial motifs and the personal world of the author.
