The exhibition of a contemporary Belarussian artist Andrei Karpenkov “The space of flowers” was opened in the “Atrium” Gallery from July 14th.
The series of abstractions, created by the author during the last five years: picturesque images of flowers, flourishing gardens, trees that look like the burst of colors, surge of emotions that are full of colors and inner experiences, are presented in the exhibition. Myriad of different colors water drops create an effect of flower plots that become woven together form the air and colors, spreaded images and compositions on the artist’s canvases. The author opted for a picturesque technique “Dripping” when an artist fall down the drops, splash them on or pours them on the canvas. Andrei Karpenkov demonstrates the feelings in his works and for this reason he turns to the language of Expressionism – the search of shapes and picturesque technique, non-accidental spots, textures and lines. They help with an abstract language to write a certain type of emotional diary.
A dominating character in the exposition is flowers symbolizing the beauty of the nature, emotions of a human, a desire to share with joy and warm. However, in the artist’s works, the fireworks of colors focused in itself not a silent life of the still life’s objects, but a sensitive energetic of a human. The exposition was build in such a way that illustrates the canvases speak to each other in a color dialogue, they are united by a general “temperature of color”, but are different in characteristics of some peculiarities.
