Alexander Borkov


04 – 27 April 2011




We are rapidly getting used to for a long time take a strong liking to the terms. Had only to be visible postmodernism, and now that decade, everyone’s talking about discourses and simulacra. Language - the pedestal, which are approved by our version of the structure of the universe. And there's nothing scarier term, down from the pedestal and marching in real life. But "Nudosphere" - not the term, but only the name of artist Alexander Borkov’s exhibition. Borkov for the most part is author of wonderful landscapes, but the scope of his interests as an artist is not limited to landscapes. Nude - a genre in which bare not only the model (although it too, of course), but the artist himself. It becomes immediately clear if the author only "works mechanically," demonstrates academic ability to draw or a set of techniques. It is in the nude (maybe even a still life) easier to distinguish the ordinary exercise from real art. The artist is literally nothing to hide behind: it is convex, spherically emerges in the depicted figures. If an artist is cold or talentless, the nude will remain planar realization of his skills, and if talented and warm, they form a sphere in which he placed the whole world. Actually, the second case - a case of artist Alexander Borkov.
