AboutWe are pleased to announce the second exhibition 'The weight of things' by artist Victor Berezovsky with new works on canvas and paper.
With the exhibition 'The weight of things', Berezovsky presents a seemingly classical approach to painting in seemingly surreal, archetypical forms and sujets. They are combined in varying configurations into still life, (architectural) landscape, and portrait. Astoundingly well-balanced combinations of disparate pictorial elements and techniques set aside the emphasis on significance in the symbolic paintings' metalanguage: representational weight and atmospheric lightness are balanced out. Through painterly technique and sketch-graphic execution, the composition of abstract areas and object-like, voluminous elements results in complex spatial impressions, which are augmented by the virtuoso application of paint.
The paintings of Berezovsky are situated in a metaphysical, inward world, but from there they mysteriously, multifariously, and intensely reach into the real world with its prevailing social and economic difficulties.
Victor Berezovsky was born in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1974, and lives and works in Dresden. He studied painting at the Fine Arts Canterbury University, New Zealand, from 1991 to 1995.
