The exhibition "At the Window" brings together paintings and pastels created by Laura Malysheva over the past thirty years. The artist’s art can be compared to a colorful midday dream, forgetting which a tired person of the 21st century can finally taste rest and peace. Observing the world from the familiar and safe space of his home, the author opens a window for us to the Black Sea Eden, full of primitive bliss.
Born into an artist’s family, Laura Malysheva decided to follow in her father’s footsteps. She graduated from the Odessa Art School. MB Grekova, and then continued her studies in Leningrad. Although the professional community of St. Petersburg appreciated Malysheva’s skill, the author’s art acquired true maturity in her native Odessa, where the artist was forced to return for family reasons. There, under the abundant sun, she began experimenting with hot enamel, a technique that requires tremendous patience and labor. The intimacy and lyricism characteristic of enamels brought a sense of lightness of being to Laura Malysheva’s work.
The intense and vibrant color produced by the heat of the kiln shimmers like a sun glint on the water surface. The luminous flux streams along the plane, the snow caps of the mountains sparkle, pinkish copper gleams through the blue bunches of grapes. With noble restraint of faces, ritual smoothness of gestures, beautiful southerners set the banquet tables. We see them walking or talking, sometimes accompanied by alabaster-white lambs, pitch-black dogs, and motley hens. Straightforward symbolism does not require deciphering: despite the obvious relationship with the aesthetics of the Renaissance, the works of Laura Malysheva do not test the viewer to see it. Paradise is revealed, it exists, and to see it, it is not necessary to go on a long and dangerous journey. Sometimes it is enough just to sit by the window, as the observer author does: perhapsit is in equanimous contemplation that the source of calmness and quiet joy lies.
