Kira Suvorova Sculpture. Graphic Art. Painting. From the Jubilees Series

14 september 2006—16 october 2006
Russian Museum offers an exhibition of a Petersburg sculptor Kira I. Suvorova: 18 works of sculpture, 14 works of graphic art and 3 paintings from the Russian Museum collection and the artist's collection. Majority of Suvorova's works feature a life-asserting thoroughness and optimism along with a realistic and at the same time bright view onto the reality. One sees the sculptor's sincere interest in man as such, her ability to recognize individuality and turn it into an image. It is not the external resemblance, but rather a certain 'sign of a man' that is important to Suvorova. Sivorova's talent for discovering artistic expressiveness and revealing it through sculpture was formed due to her upbringing. Her father, a sculptor Innokenty Suvorov (1898-1947), and mother, a painter Sofya Zaklikovskaya (1989-1975), were both members of Pavel Filonov's MAI (Masters of Analytical Art) group. Her parents' example and experience had the strongest impact on the development of Suvorova's talent for plastic art. Subsequent studies at the Ilya Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, as well as her later work in V. Lishev's studio in the Academy of Arts (1952-57) consolidated her capacities and professionalism. In the 1960s-70s, Suvorova travelled a lot, which enriched the 'collection of prototypes' for her characters. Apart from life sketches - the base for future wood and ceramics compositions created in the studio - she also made Indian ink landscapes and painterly landscapes and still-lives. Along with many other sculptors of the mid-1960s, Suvorova turned to easel painting and graphics. While her sculpture works depict the essence of people, the images created on paper and canvas reveal the 'soul' of nature or some particular place.

Like the titans of the Renaissance, the artist was richly gifted. His creative pursuits and achievements were far ahead of his time.
