At Tsekh Gallery
As the artist himself suggested, «SUMMER» is a diary of events, which did not happen. Although these events were not realized in real life, we have 13 enigmatic artworks from the current project, and each one hides a magnificent mystery, which obviously attracts art lovers.
Attentive viewer of TSEKH’ exclusive content keeps in mind not only «SNOW» (2012), but also «PARADNIY PORTRET» (2013) and «CHARCOAL» (2014). Accordingly, each project was made in its own technique: 1) oil on canvas; 2) acrylic and charcoal on polystyrene; 3) acrylic and charcoal on canvas. As for «SUMMER», in the beginning was charcoal, and afterwards acrylic.
Supposedly, hardly one within the Ukrainian contemporary artists has so much fresh air in lings of shape. This air gives him a serenity of flight, like gull («BEACH»). This serenity makes him extremely concentrated, being able to fix even the smallest details and movements of existence («BEETLE»).
Artworks from the current project affect not only because of being some kind transcendental and explicitly mystical. In fact, alchemy happened – mix of visuality, technique, colors, performance, plot, etcetera. Every art lover finds his / her own visual experience: the more interesting it is to solve the optical mystery. For instance, is there a paddle of shark or a cut of canopy? («CANOPY»)
Thing is the author caught his own wave and for now is on its peak. His performing is incredible, without its weak points. His plots are allegorical ones, but at the same time they are concrete. Taking into account his mysticism and hermetism, Mr. Rustam Mirzoev has reached the mark of maximum routine of esthetical universe.
