"NEXT TO ME"
18 September - 6 October 2012
As it is banal sounds, but Evgeniya Golant painting differs with its originality. In my opinion the point is that each work separately and a series as a whole have a kind of double layer. The first layer is taken out by the viewer at once and it creates extremely disturbing impression on the viewer - provoking, almost aggressive color, the broken rhythm, deprived of decorative effects, a heap of indistinct forms, - all makes impression of obtrusiveness as though you have sharply seized you hand.
But the easygoing tolerance as always will be rewarded. To the second layer it is necessary to make the certain way, however this way does not demand effort, just some time. And seemed negligent forms appear motivated, desperate colors organize an expressive stage in space of a sheet, and the melody becomes clear. The pavement before Astoria appear, the green garden bench starches with a lazy shadow, the hoops of cast-iron fence moving on windy embankment.
