Tatiana Sokolova
From the Jubilees Series

22 April - 04 July 2005
Benois Wing

A retrospective exhibition of Tatyana Sokolova, one of the most prominent representatives of the Moscow plastic school, was opened in the State Russian Museum within the framework of the Jubilees — 2005 cycle. Tatyana Sokolova graduated from the Moscow High Art school (the former Stroganov school). Since 1954 she has contributed to group, republic, all-union and international exhibitions. The same year marked her membership in the Union of Artists of the USSR. The sculptor works with easel and monumental-decorative sculpture, minute plastics in the portrait and subject composition genre. The art of Tatyana Sokolova is characterized by game origin and some theatricality merged with precise sculpture shape that successfully "works" in space. The singularity of the plastic solution and humour of her works immediately attracted the public to them. Maternity, youth, images of dear people, scenes of city and rural life, portraits of artists and writers — these are the favourite subjects the author repeatedly returns to. Developing her "lyric" subject, Tatyana Sokolova successfully solves various plastic tasks using different materials — wood, ceramics, metal, stone. Nevertheless, the author mostly uses wood and ceramics. The exhibition includes the works of different periods of the sculptor?s art from the State Russian Museum collection.
