Sergei Sharshun

24 august 2006—7 october 2006
Within the framework of the Return cycle the Russian Museum presents the first one-man show of Serge Sharshun in St Petersburg. The exposition consists of 60 canvases, which give the viewer the opportunity to follow the main steps of the master's artistic development. Having left Russia in 1912, the artist first lived in Berlin, then in Barcelona (in the beginning of the World War I), and in 1919 he finally settled in Paris. There the artist got acquainted with numerous schools of modern culture. Sharshun masters different means of the new fine arts searching for his own abstract language, which would help him to realize the world of his inner feelings. The artist turns to various schools in his oeuvre - from cubism and purism to dadaism and pointalism. Having lost the bond with the motherland, he felt as a Russian. Socializing with the most active and rebellious representatives of the new art, he always remained a calm contemplator of his own emotional processes.
