Liza Bobkova's watercolors (2021) were created for her solo exhibition "Gesture Slightly Stuck" at the Stieglitz Academy Museum. "Utterly delicate rhythmic compositions in drawing ink present Liza’s excellent mastery, which constitutes the true subject of the statement, admiration and criticism at any academic parade." Alexey Boyko
Liza's sculptures from the series "Toys of Underground Children" (2022) are casted from found shot brass casings and a pick, a hammer, a cutting disc and machine parts. These golden mini-monuments melted down from their huge aggressive industry. Of course, it would’ve been better if the sound of the shot had not happened, aggression had not happened, and traumatic memories wouldn’t have had to be melted down.
Three works from the project "Mute Blaze" (2021) by Egor Fedorychev compositionally based on the conflict of realistic landscapes in the center and abstractions encroaching from all sides. The landscapes are allusions of paintings by Russian artists of the late 19th century. The palette and texture of abstract painting are associated with the human body and bodily secretions. The abstraction is energetic and assertive, the landscape is static and calm, and the contrast suggests a threat between them.
Petr Kirusha's drawings (2020-2021) demonstrate the eclecticism of his approach. "Creating works from found images, photographs, pictures from memory and imagination, he draws scenes that seem familiar, and ultimately utopian in content. From his last series of watercolors on paper, the same “glitch” comes up, a glitch in the image. This way Petr Kirusha expresses the great confusion reigning in memory, when, in order to recreate the history, we need to find and glue the pieces found in the realm of the forgotten..." Nicolas Audureau
