In the art space mArs (Marsovo Pole, 3), on Monday, October 3, Irina Pecherskikh’s personal exhibition “The Singularity” will open.
Pecherskikh is a muralist by education, she graduated from the Moscow State Art Academy named after M. S. G. Stroganov. Resident of Cité Internationale des Arts Paris, exhibited in Luxembourg, Finland, Bulgaria, Italy.
In her new series, the artist irritates the visual receptors with jagged nerve rhythms and at the same time pacifies with a general plastic meditativeness. The depicted objects are only guessed, sometimes dissolving in the environment, sometimes regaining materiality. Flowers, fruits, vases, anthropomorphic forms are just a pretext for improvisation.
Pechersky’s arsenal includes only acrylic, colored ink and gouache, but she manages to achieve a convincing expressive capacity of images. They refer to the plots of the modernists Paul Klee and Joan Miro, the surrealist Max Ernst, as well as the textures of the canvases of the abstract expressionist Willem de Kooning.
Among the exhibited works is a series of graphic portraits of masters of the past: “Dali”, “Vincent”, “Sadness”, “Pins-nez”, “Psychoanalysis”. The composition “Sadness” clearly refers to Vincent van Gogh’s “Portrait of Doctor Gachet”, a painter who liked to recycle plots and motifs, entering into a dialogue either with Jean-Francois Millet and Honore Daumier, or with Eugene Delacroix, Rembrandt and Utagawa Hiroshige. Irina Pecherskikh does the same – she turns the used compositions into self-sufficient works that live their own separate lives.
Entrance to the exhibition is free.
