The solo exhibition of the contemporary Russian artist Grigory Dembovsky presents
55 works that were created in the 1980’s–2000’s, from the artist’s studio and the
other private collections.
The organic combination of expressive means typical to the Expressionism and
the Moscow school of painting of the first third of the 20th century
are in the basis of the artist’s recognizable style, which essence is allegorically
revealed in the title of the exhibition. The dramatic tension of the canvas is increased
by using of free dynamic manner of painting, intensive contrasts of color and combination
of the symbolic summarized forms regardless of the genre and theme Dembovsky is
working in. The sharp, sometimes unusual way of interpretation of the traditional
religious, genre and animalistic themes (Crucifixion, The Last Supper, A Hunting,
Engagement with a Bull, Last Chance, A Wounded Soldier) helps the author to
create the laconic and capacious metaphors of the human being and of the inconstant
inner development of the artist.
The exhibition is supported by TNK Art Gallery, Moscow.
