Tatiana Paleeva’s ‘East Meets West Gallery’ opens ‘Meeting Each Other’, a joint exhibition of Ekaterina Kudriavtseva and Aleksei Lantsev. The event is part of ‘ChudGraph’ (Graphic Art Annual Fair) to be held in the New Manege exhibion hall in April 2009. The exhibition starts a whole series of projects dedicated to a decade of work by the East Meets West Gallery.
Aleksey’s quick, sketchy and impressionistic drawings made on his way from Paris to Hamburg are combined naturally with Ekaterina Kudryavtseva’s figurative pictures from the series of ‘Flowers’ as well as with her poetry creations ‘non-poems’, which provide a glimpse of secret relations between the artist and nature.
Aleksey Lantsev and Ekaterina Kudryavtseva are ‘meeting each other’ both figuratively and in real exhibition space. Ekaterina moves from almost absolutely realistic, even hyper-realistic landscapes and flowers to more abstract outlines of large forms. In his turn, Aleksey goes from traditional large-scale abstract painting to a finer detail, light and shadow play and brushstrokes of gouache and watercolor on his graphic sketches of Paris and Hamburg.
seems, the meeting of the two artists has occurred..
