At the invitation of the Radishchev Museum and the Volga branch of the Russian Academy of Arts, with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Saratov Region, the People’s Artist of Russia, Academician of the Russian Academy of Arts Konstantin Vitalievich Petrov presents an exhibition project in Saratov.
The exhibition will be held from April 27 to June 3, 2018 in the Saratov State Art Museum. A.N. Radishchev (Pervomaiskaya St., 75).
Konstantin Petrov is a principled follower of art, professing an academic school equally as a necessary foundation, plastic virtues, innovation and relevance.
The personal exhibition has more than 70 works by Konstantin Petrov for the more than 25-year period of his creative activity: from 1992 to 2018. These are works from various creative series: “Still Life”, “Spain”, “Bratislava”, “Portraits”, “Pereslavl-Zalessky”, “Derbent”.
Konstantin Petrov early declared himself as an original master, with his own imaginative vision and pictorial language. He actively participates in the most prestigious art exhibitions. Konstantin Petrov spent several years in Spain, where he learned a lot. Here his horizons broadened, a great freedom of expression appeared, collectors, gallery owners and museums began to acquire works of the artist, personal exhibitions were organized.
The European experience gained by him in Germany and Spain allows him, without breaking away from the traditions of the national art school, to more strictly and selectively relate to his creative work. He tries himself in different techniques, types of art genres, giving preference to easel forms, unique graphics and paintings. The artist’s favorite materials are watercolor and pastel, in which he feels most relaxed, easy and free. Genre priorities are determined - landscape and still life, although he peculiarly declares himself and in the portrait, as evidenced by psychological, acute work in this genre.
He travels around the country a lot, travels abroad, constantly honing his professional skills, enriching his work with new, sometimes unexpected impressions. A special style appears in his art, which manifests itself in lightness, a certain emotional sincerity, which manifested itself in landscapes and in genre motifs of recent years.
Konstantin Petrov’s watercolors have a certain romantic phantom, despite the recognition of the specific places where they were painted. The work in this technique is characterized by a special transparency with a touch of sphumatto, giving them amazing emotional intonation and musicality. Most of this feature of the palette of Konstantin Petrov is noticeable in still lifes.
Emotionality and observation, professional culture and a genuine sense of immersion in the real and mysterious, in a limited and endless world, largely born in the imagination of the artist in his own image and likeness, allows us to talk about the work of Konstantin Petrov as an extraordinary phenomenon on the horizon of modern Russian fine art ( Based on an article by academician of the Russian Academy of Arts A.I. Rozhin).
