Exhibition of Gorynychiki art group "Three faces"

The members of the Gorynychiki art group fly around the country and call their exhibitions "flights". Their seventh exhibition and seventh city is the Artmuse Museum, St. Petersburg.


Since its inception, the creative group has referred to the sequence of exhibitions as "flights". The birth of "Gorynych" was evidenced by their first exhibition at the Moscow gallery "Visit" in 2017. By 2018, the association has already had a more ambitious project, linking such distant cities as St. Petersburg and Vladivostok. In 2021, after the 5th "flight" to Novosibirsk, "Flight № 6" to Sochi (gallery "Fort") took place, and the exhibition at Artmuseum (St. Petersburg) is already the 7th "flight".

The Gorynychiki group consists of three artists, each with their own distinctive creative face. Metaphysical works by Denis Saunin, deeply symbolic, are imbued with "eloquent silence" and some timeless, cosmic feeling. Anna Shchegoleva's paintings in the style of synthetic realism are deeply metaphorical in their slightly ironic, almost domestic descriptive manner. The canvases by VAN (Viktor Norkin), executed in the author's characteristic style of semantic symbolism, present a unique perspective on familiar things from the most unusual angle.

The artists of the group work, at first glance, in very different genres. But there is undoubtedly a very important unifying principle in this group, which is based on the search for emotion. Their canvases are not so much for contemplation as for philosophical reconsideration of global and local processes of the modern world. Their subjects are built around subtle psychological situations, often autobiographical, but so synthesized and generalized that the viewer has little doubt that it is his story, his thoughts and his experiences.

The exhibition is curated by Marina Gurevich.
