Painting, Drawing

25.11.2015 - 20.12.2015

We all love some particular home - or one in which we live now, or one that is stored in the memories, and the others - the one which is not yet, which exists in dreams. Almost all in childhood loved to draw little houses - some are so enthusiastic that they became architects. In short, for all of us - except for a small number of people who are convinced homeless - the word "home" - non-indifferent, it causes a lot of images and associations.

You come to another country - look at the houses, running along the road, and wonder - what kind of is life there? You go in the evening through the city - look at the lighted windows and think: what kind of people live there? What interesting things they do? A New Year a little house in the snow, with lighted windows - it is also the symbol of a fairy tale, waiting for a miracle. Image of the ruins of the building sets the viewer at the sad, philosophical mood ... Homelessness - a symbol of inconvenience, insecurity.

In Epilogue of her Poem Without a Hero Anna Akhmatova says:

But the joyful word-home- 
It is a word unknown to 
All now, all look through foreign panes.

Therefore, the image of house, painting with urban and rural view - it is not just indifferent transfer of reality but emotionalgreeting of human life, an invitation to look at this with warmth and attention.

Painting exhibition of houses images of the S.P.A.S. gallery plans to show in a dark time in Saint-Petersburg, in the late autumn, when so required atmosphere of warmth and light, which creates paintings of great artists, not only ours, but also from other cities.
