Erarta Museum presents an exhibition of Olga Osipova, whose surrealist painting invites the viewer to the wonderland
- Works inspired by the works of Lewis Carroll
- The kingdom of the absurd, where English tea drinking is not complete without a Russian samovar
- Heroines "assembled" from recognizable visual images
Olga Osipova’s painting is inspired by the works of Lewis Carroll and therefore is close and understandable even to an unprepared viewer. Referring to the adventures of Alice, familiar to everyone from childhood, the artist "collects" his heroine from dozens of already created images. Therefore, in the author’s works, we will find the attributes of the Carroll world that pop culture liked so much: a clock whose hand froze next to the number five, flamingos, giant chess, decks of cards and towers of tea cups. However, Osipova’s works are not illustrations for "Alice in Wonderland". Here, in the best traditions of nonsense, everything is mixed with everything: references to the works of great masters from Leonardo da Vinci to Alphonse Mucha coexist with philosophical and literary allusions.
The artist carefully tries to transfer the absurdity inherent in Carroll’s works to surrealistic painting: the Cheshire Cat here unexpectedly becomes Schrödinger’s cat, traditional English tea drinking cannot do without a Russian samovar, and brooding Alice, who has seen the same thing on the clock for several hours, is looking for an answer to the sacramental Shakespearean question: to be or not to be. Each work by Olga Osipova is a puzzle, which can be solved by following the flamingo.
