Suprematic Teapot and Fish. 1998. Oil on canvas. 80x100
17 october 2012—1 february 2013
The exposition of exhibition of the People’s Artist of Russia, the Honored Worker of Art of Russia, Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Arts brings together about 60 paintings. Among them are the early works that were created on the boarder of the 1960–1970’s, in the period of Evgeniy Zevin’s participation in the exhibitions of the Moscow Non-conformist artists, specifically in the famous exhibition in the Izmailovsky Park in 1974. There are presented the portraits, landscapes, still lives and compositions that are devoted to the problems of power, history and modern life, and also the images of political leaders and representatives of the Russian culture of the 20th century (Communal Flat, Chair of Power, Scarecrows, In Memory of Dmitriy Shostakovich and the others). The strict author’s interest to the discoveries of the Russian and foreign Avant-Garde revealed itself in the use of contrasts of colors, rhythmical musicality of rhythmic structure and constructiveness of drawing. The combination of reality and metaphoric in the works by E.Zevin is evoked by the author’s reflections on the contradictory nature of the beauty, while irony and grotesque become the most effective form of comprehension of what is happening in the so-called Time of changes in the history of Russia.
