If we ask what the “female principle” is in contemporary art, there is an illustrative answer in Olga Gorkhova’s art. Certainly this is not about sublimation of this phenomenon in art but rather about it’s expressive representative.
The “Z.O.Z” abbreviation is difficult to decode. It is better not even to try and leave it as a crypto-name, which is necessary only for exhibition organizing.
The exhibition is about the author herself, who is so honest as honest a woman may be – in her unpredictable, uncompromising and extremely realistic art.
An exhibition of the famous Moscow analyst-artist Alexander Pankin is taking place in the frames of a longstanding art project of Krokin gallery – "Archivation of contemporaneity".
The name of an exhibition is dedicated to a main theme of the artist, who has been analyzing the human head form for 50 years. Not only a form, but also portrait lines peculiarity and mimic tension, that all together creates an expressive sculptural image-sign.
The main part of the exhibition consists of graphic and painting art works representing the development of this theme in artist’s way, from the early 1960’s till today.
