"S.P.A.S." Gallery on 17th of February opens exhibition of talented Saint-Petersburg artist Nadezhda Everling. Everling known as theatrical artist and also as master of keen grotesque collages of cloth, but for this time "S.P.A.S." presents her painting only. Name of exhibition is "Habitat".
The theme of this is picture of bedroom community life in metropolis.
Observing and ironical sight of artist focuses on fragments of usual pictures amidst of everyday's life stream, which we don't note at all habitually and those are our life build of. This is city of the bus stops and brightly lightened stalls, city of yardmen, advertisers in costumes of pizza and of inhabitants, who hurry up somewhere, city of supermarkets and Lenin's monuments, which still here. «This is attempt of aesthetical perception of these environments, where we live, - comments author herself her works. - Everyday's life and leisure of people living in small flats, the routs they take in their daily lives, points of attraction ant places of concentration - there are pictures of life, which framed of region's borders: there is possible to be born, found a job, gave offspring, aged and dyed; there are possible trips not far than gardening, own small plot of earth - and so pass winter, spring, summer and autumn». Pictures of our life are familiar, fun and hopeless at the same time; but art message of the circle - is not satire at all, but idea purely painting indeed.
Also for those who know creative work of Everling, this exhibition can out to be unexpected. Because apart of keen and ironical sight at life (and also at subject, at color), which also this artist has, here open absolutely other her qualities: subtle color gift and hidden - even secret - lyricism of her painting.
