Landscape is always a bit of a traveler and Explorer. In a series of
cities, continents, Islands, deserts, lakes and oceans, he finds
alive, nemodulirovannyj and devoid of the Director's vision natural
the beauty of nature. His eyes nicked over the centuries cobblestone pavement becomes
precious diamond, and dried sea winds gnarled tree branches
filled with grace and elegance. Hiding the late afternoon haze beach
Indian ocean, the dome, melting in the midday Inferno Asia: a scattering
bright colors in the caressing cradle of the subtropics or the morning snow
the foothills of the Pamir...
Gugo Manizer is a landscape painter inspired and sincere. His realism
(surprisingly, in the world of modern conventional art someone else writes
realistic landscapes), shadowy and almost unreal, filled with
literalness is not the details, and moods and emotions. His work, whether
exotic images of distant countries or lyrical images of Russian nature,
full of bright and clear sense of beauty. Devoid of any pathos,
underlined symbolism and deliberate showiness, they like open window
before the eyes of the one who looks at them. Window in such ordinary and such
wonderful world, which he saw in his numerous
travel. Like don Quixote, lifting up to heaven his
The beautiful Lady, he became a knight of the exquisite, incomparable
the beauty of the universe, but praised it not with spears and sword, and with
paints and canvas - the only weapon of artists.
