From May 10 to June 9 in the Attic of Artists you can get acquainted with the work of Anatoly Speck at his exhibition called "Tolerance."
Working in St. Petersburg and Denmark, Anatoly will present diverse plots at the exhibition - from pastoral southern landscapes to interpretations of current world events intertwined with biblical motifs.
Speka prefers to write from nature, interpreting the concept of nature quite widely. He believes in kind not only the external world, but also the internal, and calls the abstraction "realism from within the head." In the search for material for his painting, Anatoly is not limited to visual images, reflecting in his paintings the whole spectrum of sensations. The sound is as interesting for the artist as the visual impressions, and, continuing the synesthetic tradition of Vasily Kandinsky, Speka writes music, the smell of lilac and the singing of a thrush on canvas.
Speaking about the variety of subjects, Anatoly recalls the words of one of his teachers, Nikolai Sazhin: “An artist who repeats himself is a dead artist. To live, you must seek. ” And the artist is looking for - he paints the roofs of St. Petersburg, the views from the windows of Blok and Nekrasov, dancing in a whirlwind of skirts and the color of capoeirista, the growth of grass from a seed in the ground through the shoot and right up to the sky-blue glare on the edge of the blade of grass.
Anatoly Specky’s exhibition primarily about what interests him, offends him for the living. Whether it be the shabby walls of St. Petersburg, the rustle of fallen leaves or the lighting solution that attracted the artist - all this coexists in his “moving painting” on equal terms, referring to the name of the exhibition not only plot, but conceptually.
