Bondarenko Ivan Nikolaevich, artist - monumentalist, famous master of decorative art. 30-year career of a painter, sculptor, enamel.
From the author of the exhibition: “This path includes a 20-year history of the artist’s revival of enamel art in Russia. My life is active, purposeful, full of dedication, dedicated to love and helping people. I work in different directions - sculpture, enamel, painting, ceramics. "
The sculptures of Ivan Bondarenko have an exact elaboration of images, are plastic and accurate in the choice of material. Be it stone, wood or bronze. Creating volumetric-spatial compositions, the artist uses different materials that express and emphasize the essence of the depicted object.
The art objects created by the master turn into plastic signs-metaphors, which actively include the viewer in the creative process, thanks to the powerful influence of color, shape, decor, rhythm and texture. As a result, the ancient enamel is gradually becoming the sphere of new experiments, the synthesis of various technologies and materials.
Today, the basis of many plastic experiments in enamel is the formal relationship between form and color, plane and space. Therefore, in modern enamel, the search for masters of the Russian avant-garde of the early twentieth century is actively continuing. The path of experiments and the creative search for new means of artistic expressiveness of space, plastic possibilities and stable color solutions that are not subject to the destructive influence of time, led the artist into the world of enamel art.
“It was here that I felt the multifaceted artistic possibilities of glass and metal. In recent years, I have been closely and successfully working in the technique of hot enamel, attracting attention with the novelty, subtle aesthetics and spirituality of successfully found images. ”
The works of Ivan Bondarenko stand out with freshness, captivate the author’s intention and carry a good emotional charge. Compositional solutions sound profound philosophy. A wide range of mythological, religious, historical and biographical stories on the themes of love, sacrifice, motherhood, the struggle between good and evil are embodied in the polychrome language of symbolism and metaphors. The artist is recognizable, he has his own face, his own style and his own palette.
