The artist - monumentalist Ivan Nikolaevich Bondarenko, a famous master of decorative art, has gone through a 30-year career of a painter, sculptor, enamel.
This path includes a 20-year history of the artist’s revival of the art of enamel in Russia. The master works in different directions - sculpture, enamel, painting, ceramics. His sculptures have a precise elaboration of images, are plastic and precise in the choice of material. Whether it is stone, wood or bronze. Creating volumetric-spatial compositions, he uses different materials that express and emphasize the essence of the depicted object. Art objects created by I. Bondarenko are increasingly turning into plastic signs-metaphors, which actively include the viewer in the creative process, thanks to the powerful influence of color, form, decor, rhythm and texture. As a result, ancient enamel is gradually becoming the sphere of new experiments, synthesis of different technologies and materials.
Today, many plastic experiments in enamel are based on the formal relationship between form and color, plane and space. Therefore, in modern enamel, the search for Russian avant-garde masters of the early twentieth century continues. The path of experiments and creative search for new means of artistic expression of space, plastic possibilities and stable color solutions that are not subject to the destructive effects of time, led me to the world of enamel art.
It was here that the master felt the multifaceted artistic possibilities of glass and metal. In recent years he has been working closely and successfully in the technique of hot enamel, attracting attention with the novelty, subtle aesthetics and spirituality of successfully found images. His works stand out for their freshness, captivate the author’s intentions and carry a kind emotional charge. Compositional solutions have a deep philosophy. A wide range of mythological, religious, historical and biographical plots on the themes of love, self-sacrifice, motherhood, the struggle between good and evil, are embodied in the polychrome language of symbolism and metaphors. Ivan Bondarenko is recognizable because he has his own face, his own style and his own palette.
