papiers russes

April 14 2009 - June 06 2009

Papiers russes is a collective exhibition of selected works on paper by 14 important Russian artists including Yuri Avvakumov, Gluklya, Nina Kertselli, Alyona Kirtsova, Oleg Kudryashov, Leonid Lamm, Igor Makarevich, Vladimir Nemukhin, Oscar Rabin, Naftali Rakuzin, Mikhail Roginsky, Vladimir Titov, Ira Waldron, and Gennady Zubkov.

Some of the artists selected often work principally in other media. Avvakumov, an architect by training, builds models, uses photographs and creates objects. Gluklya works with found clothing, videos and performance. Kirtsova creates objects, collages, and oil on canvas. Lamm is known for his installations, paintings, collages and photographs. Makarevich, who will be represented at this year's Venice Biennale and at the end of May 2009 shows in Vienna at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, works with installations, sculpture, paintings, and photography. Nemukhin, one of the stalwarts of non-official art is represented by an early gouache on paper. Rabin, a principal organizer of the non-conformist artists, is a master of subject and composition and renowned for his oil on canvas. Titov also works on canvas often incorporating collage elements. Zubkov, a disciple of the Sterligov Group, is well-known for his large, colorful oil on canvas, often also incorporating collage. Waldron works with fabric, installations, photography and prints. Kertselli, Kudryashov, and Rakuzin are best known for their works on paper, and cardboard, in the case of Roginsky.

Various techniques are employed by each artist including use of oil (Roginsky), acrylic (Makarevich), watercolor (Gluklya, Rabin, Nemukhin), pencil (Kertselli, Rakuzin), pen (Titov), collage (Kertselli, Kirtsova, Rabin, Zubkov), photography (Makarevich), etching (Kudryashov) and silkscreen (Lamm, Waldron).

On paper, the artists often express a whimsical, spontaneous or humorous side of their work. Intimacy, however, becomes a common theme between them all.
