I turned my face ...

The State Hermitage Museum invites Adrian Geni to the painting exhibition"I turned my face ...".

The exhibition will feature 12 paintings, including paintings created under the impression of reproductions of the Hermitage paintings, which the artist considered in childhood.

Adrian Geni’s picturesque style is erected by Francis Bacon and Gerhard Richter. It is defined as hybrid, dynamic, cinematic. Geni's works are characterized by the combination of blurry, rough textures and interspersed with light and color, then shapeless, or, on the contrary, sharply defined, with a clear, almost photographic depiction of individual elements - such a game in contrasts creates a sense of collage and gives additional depth. The artist refuses to use a brush, preferring a palette knife and spatulas. Restrained color is destroyed by explosions of color, shimmering like a glitch of a digital image or stains of oil stains. This combination of randomness and orderliness is perceived by the viewer almost on a bodily level: Geni's painting is designed for sensual, intuitive perception.
