Andrey Grositsky. Propriety

Asceticism and simplicity, rudeness and "lack of ideology" of portraits of objects allow us to correlate the works of Mikhail Roginsky, Dmitry Krasnopevtsev, Boris Turetsky presented at the exhibition with the style of non-rutalism, which was fundamental for the time of the second modernism (1950-1980s). The art of Andrey Grositsky also conducts a dialogue with this style. In the second part of the exhibition, these three themes will correspond to three leitmotifs of communication between Grositsky's work and artists of the new generation - Alexander Golynsky, Vitaly Bezpalov, Artem Filatov, Vladimir Potapov, Alexander Tsikarishvili, Vladimir Chernyshev, Nestor Engelke.The exposition of the third hall tells about three fundamental themes of Grositsky's dialogue with his contemporaries. The first theme "Template" is devoted to the ratio of circulation, typicality and uniqueness of the thing presented in a painting or in a sculptural object. It refers to the aesthetics of the Italian "poor art", arte povera, actualizes the problem of silence of deliberately non-unique, anti-artistic, artless objects and stereotyped forms. Ivan Chuikov, Yuri Zlotnikov, Igor Shelkovsky become Grositsky's interlocutors. The second theme “Sarcasm” (translated from Greek “tormenting the flesh”) is associated with the social engagement of art. Boris Orlov and Viktor Pivovarov are participants in this dialogue. Finally, the third theme "Brutalism" testifies to the responsibility of Grositsky and his contemporaries for the concept of "honesty" of structure, form and material. Asceticism and simplicity, rudeness and "lack of ideology" of portraits of objects allow us to correlate the works of Mikhail Roginsky, Dmitry Krasnopevtsev, Boris Turetsky presented at the exhibition with the style of non-rutalism, which was fundamental for the time of the second modernism (1950-1980s). The art of Andrey Grositsky also conducts a dialogue with this style. In the second part of the exhibition, these three themes will correspond to three leitmotifs of communication between Grositsky's work and artists of the new generation - Alexander Golynsky, Vitaly Bezpalov, Artem Filatov, Vladimir Potapov, Alexander Tsikarishvili, Vladimir Chernyshev, Nestor Engelke.
