Vladimir Anselm, biography, selected works
Art of Vladimir Anselm in all its diversity of style, forms and details of content, is whole in its intellectual task. Every exhibition of this artist is the logic continuation of multiplicate examination of European cultural space. Anselm identifies this space on the ground of historical archetypes, one of which is the main attribute of European culture representation – Classicism.
Classicism of Vladimir Anselm is not just Grand style, but this style gives motivation and activation in frame of historical accidents of European wars and revolutions.
Classicism is the dominating in exhibition meanings and is presented as an archetype and essential companion in world accidents overcoming, as a chaos antithesis.
The author in a postmodernist paradigm appeals to European classic examples: “La Marseillaise” of Francois Rude, who idealized French revolution; “Victory” of Christian Rauch, who glorified the establishment of Prussia; and chrestomathy of Soviet classicism Ivan Shadr, Vera Mukhina, Anna Golubkina.
Vladimir Anselm shows an eternal “gene” of style, expressed in search of reference point and ideal. The Greek classic art sample was perceived by Rome, who interpreted shape principals and intonations of Hellas.In its turn Rome incorporated new art sample, which idealized living principles, educated and brought new goals.
Classicism genotype is permanent and can be described as an endless story, which conforms myriads of chaos particles into the order.
