Exhibition of August 2016

«Pied collection»

01.07.2016 - 31.07.2016

In the beginning of the novel in verse "Eugene Onegin", Pushkin addresses the reader: ":this pied collection begs your indulgence - it's been spun from threads both sad and humoristic, themes popular or idealistic..." Like any novel "Eugene Onegin" has affected several storylines, contemporary life was shown in a variety of pages speak in different voices - and as if in one breath.

Exhibition of paintings, which will be held in the gallery S.P.A.S. in July, it can be called these Pushkin's words - "Pied collection" - because, like the famous novel, consists of individual, snatched from the stream of life moments, each of which has its own story, its own history - often already familiar from books, sometimes the old, the eternal, and even momentary, bizarre. But they all point to the pointillist painting, add up to a sense of awe of life, the joy of living.

The feeling is there and under the impression of a bright, summery festive painting, and from the exquisitely understated, soulful and lyrical - in short, all the paintings presented at the exhibition, a variety of artists, will inevitably find in the soul of the viewer response - with the hint of everyday miracle.
