Alisa Gallery presented works on vintage velvet paper and an object by Andrey Dmitrenko, paintings by Ksenia Finogeeva, and graphics on newsprint paper by Anton Gudkov at the Blazar Young Art Fair.
The booth, which combines figurative and abstract works, is dedicated to the idea of corporeality, for example, immediate, sensual and depicted realistically, as in the works of Finogeeva, who supervises the training of MMA wrestlers.
The body can be represented as a transfer - minimalist works by Dimitrenko showing the Soviet velvet paper with all its traces of time, wrinkles and stories, traces that the artist applies to the surface with a pencil, pigment or needle.
And finally, the soaring disembodied in Gudkov's work - in his graphics we see both the confused signs of automatic writing, and zoomorphic creatures, and landscape if he wants to work with perspective, and music if he turns to the idea of rhythm. Thus, Gudkov is capable of an artistic gesture «to revive» if not the body, then any line and point.
