Perm Art Gallery hosts an exhibition of works by Perm artist Anatoly Filimonov"Magic artist".
The exposition presents more than 50 works by the author, performed in the period 1970-2000 in various visual techniques, different genres and themes: landscapes, portraits and self-portraits, plot paintings, decorative compositions, philosophical works on biblical themes.
Among the works presented is a series of lyrical landscapes brought from traveling around the country and native land: “Crossing. Annensky Bridge ”,“ Ilyinsky Park ”,“ Gate of the house on the outskirts ”. Works from the grotesque series "Modern Philistines" (1979), exposing the moral flaws of people. The exposition also contains views of the old provincial Perm from the famous series "Perm 100 years ago." The most important stage in the life of Anatoly Filimonov was the creation of the “Bible cycle” (1995-2000) - part of these works was also included in the exposition. In these works, the artist does not simply convey the content of biblical subjects. These are works of deep philosophical meaning, an attempt to express their understanding of the World, God, Man. “Anatoly Filimonov is a special artist. The epithet “magic”, given many years ago by fans, is unusually suitable for him. Almost two decades have passed since the unexpected departure of the Master, and his paintings are still in demand. ”(Irina Andrenko, art critic)
