press

"Vladimir Nasedkins' art belongs to (...) the more abstract and universal values of formal harmony, organizational efficiency and material economy. He writes: "I always believed that what defines the artistic value of a painting is rhythm, color structure and plasticity; subject-matter hinders" That is why, as Nasedkin affirms, a major influence on his artistic career has been the turkmen desert, specifically, its "absence of people and its infertility" reminiscent of "paradise on earth"."

"The surfaces of Nasedkin's free-standing installations, geometric paintings, engravings and drawings are metaphors for the desert, the ocean and the mountain range, places which are also "useless"."

"A valiant nomad, Nasedkin pursues his path across enormous metallic and acrylic surfaces, unconcerned by functional intent or destination, and his artifacts (...) are metaphors for the aimless and beautiful peregrinations."

"When we contemplate the idea of emptiness and "placelessness" which Nasedkin elaborates in his minimalist manifesto (2007), we can understand that the desert, the ocean and the mountain-range can be viewed and reviewed also as minimalist artifacts."

John Bowlt "A Prophet in the Wilderness" in: Vladimir Nasedkin, Tatlin publishers, 2008.

 

"The main aesthetic minimalist principle is the principle of opposites, which is in the combination of lines and spots with blank surfaces on the page, with void and pause. But voids and pauses are not passive, their white mass invades the image. Such an importance of the pause and the void arises because minimalism establishes the principle of incompleteness and that of an aesthetic hint, which makes perception as individual and exceptional, as the creative process itself." 

Vladimir Nasekin, quoted by Eduard Kubensky in the Foreword to Vladimir Nasedkin, Tatlin publishers, 2008.
