The new museum of Aslan Chekhoev on December 11, 2020 opens an exhibition of paintings by the St. Petersburg artist Tanya Raush "ECO". The exhibition includes about 40 paintings from the artist’s studio and private collections.
The artist Tanya Rausch views her painting as “genetic material”. Her genetic code contains a very rare complex of professional skills: after graduating from the Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture named after V.I. I.E. Repin, she not only began to paint, but also studied icon painting, participated in the restoration of the lost Baroque painting of the Chesme Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.
From the iconostasis - the “barrier reef” between us, parishioners, and the sacred space of the altar, the spirit-bearers look at us - saints and righteous men who have gained eternal life and are mediators between people and God.
In relation to the secular painting of Tanya Rausch, the now widespread expression "artistic medium" is especially applicable. Getting used to looking for a medium in art, that is, a carrier of information, we forget that initially a "medium" is an intermediary between the lives of people and spirits.
The artist is unusually selective in subjects and in the style of her art. She paints portraits of teenagers from photographs, when found, when she herself filmed. Children look at the viewer, as they once looked not even at the photographer, but at an incomprehensible point in the lens. Tanya Rausch writes a strange, searching and at the same time defocused gaze, about which you think not only about its direction, but also about where it comes from, feeling painting as a mediator and at the same time a barrier between times and realities.
