Evgenia Buravleva and Yegor Plotnikov are students of the workshop of the legendary Pavel Nikonov (Surikov Institute). In the works presented at the exhibition in the Erarta Museum, the authors express a moral attitude towards nature, which is endowed with spirit and consciousness.
The landscapes of Evgenia Buravleva are thoughtful and melancholic. Depicting nature, the artist as if writes her own self-portrait: landscapes are in tune with her inner state. In part of the landscape, she added a figure of an outsider - the modern contemplator, who instead of enjoying peace, only removes what he saw on the camera of a smartphone.
The artist found her own method of creating an internal glow of colors on the canvas, thanks to which the details dissolve and it begins to seem that space and time become special - unearthly, unidentified.
Yegor Plotnikov offers the viewer a different look at space: he deliberately stops his eyes at his most trivial point - we see this several times a day. Concluding ordinariness in canvas, the author reflects on the value of daily existence, which, strictly speaking, makes up life.
Egor Plotnik also tries to change the picture of the painting as a plane image. He began his creative searches in this area with white reliefs, and inscribed a human figure in their space. So he gave birth to a conditional white sculpture, which seemed to be striving to become part of the image. Observer, who first appeared in the landscape of Caspar David Friedrich and turned into an observer with a telephone from Buravleva, makes Plotnikov a voluminous one. This technique expands the space - so the artist allows us to take a different look at the boundaries of the picture plane.
