The exposition of the second (after 1997) solo exhibition of Russian artist Pyotr Dik (1939–2002) in the Russian Museum will include about 100 pastel works. The artist used such unusual medium for his compositions as sand paper that helped him to achieve the feeling of a special emotional depth of the images that exist on the border of the real and the abstract.
Pyotr Dik was ethnic German born in Russia. He lived and worked in Vladimir town. This is the reason why the analyticity of Europe and refined poetics of East in his works coexist in harmony. One of the major sources of inspiration for this master was the Old Russian Art that addressed to primary existence. Pyotr Dik worked in numerous genres, and in each of them proved to be the artist-philosopher who had discovered the connection between the ordinary and the eternal.
