The exhibition CAUTION! FRAGILE! starts on July 29, 2021 at the Imagine Point gallery. We present works by Kyiv artists Lyudmila Rashtanova, Serhiy Kornievsky and Eduard Potapenkov. Elusive time freezes in landscapes and images, in fragments of events and plots that make up the idea of human symbiosis with the world, the existence of society. The erroneous habit of identifying ourselves as a basic element makes us hostage to the circumstances. And what if the usual supports are destroyed?
The first joint exhibition of Ukrainian artists Oleksiy Malykh (Kyiv) and Olha Kuzyura (Lviv). Olekia's wooden objects, created from the old ones, in the early twentieth century house boards, ornamented with fragments of levkas, paintings and nails. Olga's monotypes are made in the technique of "blind embossing" on paper, where the matrices are both ancient artifacts and quite everyday objects.
The authors of the exhibition, Oleksandr Yanovych and Oleksandra Kryshovska, father and daughter, discuss with each other the creation and destruction of reality. Various media are used as arguments in the discussion - painting, sculpture and installation; intergenerational dialogue, both abstract and deeply emotional, touches on issues of separation and heredity, purpose and meaning, action and inaction.
The animal gods in our exposition are different - they are real, semi-real, or absolutely imaginary. They were created by modern artists in different styles and techniques, embodied in different materials - at a distance of thousands of years from those ancient, hairy and somewhat wild ancestors, who painted their masterpieces on cave walls. Yet we and our cave peers share an idea that they, animals, are truly gods.
A joint project of two acknowledged masters. Steeped with symbols, exquisite graphic works by Oksana Stratiychuk and fabilous volumed deep textures of abstract landscapes created by the maestro of levkas technique Valery Shkarupa. Does the horizon line exist in reality? What does a universal landscape look like that doesn't represent a specific location? Feel at the same time the symbiosis and differences of two natural structures, gesso and graphics, depth of volumes and infinity of forms
