Alex Kuznetsov solo show "SHIFT" @ MSK Eastside Gallery / Moscow
Alex Kuznetsov put’s aside his spray paints for a more sophisticated and less vaporous technique. Acrylic paint is softly spread with tools, the works now becomes a wide chart of colours. It seems obvious thats Kuznetsov’s sensibility for calligraphy which comes from his graffiti background and is visible in this new series. Instinctively, it is towards a more resolute abstraction that the artist is now engaged and tells us: «do not try to find any images» there are none and suggests us to look deeper into the texturised, thickened, colourful and skilfully mixed pallet of his feelings. Kuznetsov paintings are obsessed by delicate dynamism with a total control on the canvas reliefs and depths. Undoubtedly, the artist considers the process in the same way as the result, at the same time fundamental and significant.
Without any reference to the reality, the work of Alex Kuznetsov offers a new aesthetic dimension which invites us into contemplation and meditation. Alex Kuznetsov asserts himself in an approach of permanent research for a perfect based on a scholar equation between the composition, the colours, the material and of course the movement, keystone of its whole production.
Alex Kuznetsov born 1978, lives and works in Moscow.
