Still life - from the French "dead nature". As an independent genre, it developed in the 17th century, using it especially popular in Dutch art. But, like any other genre, over the course of several centuries it undergoes rethinking, and in the works of artists of the 20th century it takes on new forms. Somewhere, it remains a simple and lyrical reflection of the everyday life, and somewhere it goes beyond the usual understanding, already carrying a deeper metaphysical content.
The exhibition, brought to the attention of the viewer, reflects various visions of the genre in the works of artists of the 20-21th centuries. Each author selectively approaches the search for motive, demonstrating personal preferences in both the plot and the style. Many, going beyond the framework of realism, turn to a symbolic interpretation, endowing objects with metaphysical properties. One can observe how the display of life gradually develops into a search for new plastic solutions, in a search for symbolic solutions, in a search for new ways to reflect being.
Still life is both simple and complex at the same time. With this genre, usually begin to study fine art, so it is an integral part of the learning process. It allows you to delve into the study of form and volume on the example of simple objects. But when an artist goes beyond the boundaries of familiar notions, he turns the objective world into something more than a study study. In this exhibition, the still life before us is self-sufficient and independent as a genre. Many works are capable of telling us both about their authors and about people in general.
