This time N2N Gallery is proud to present two lyrical landscape masters – Grygori Sokyrynskyi and Igor Shipilin.
“My motherland taught me art”– this may be a slogan of this debut due exhibition.
Both artists are depicting what their homes are alike; something comes first on our mind when we think about homeland. The objects are neither glorified nor beautified but they all have something divine in their nature and that’s where the true significance of the works given by both artists is hidden: water, trees, roads, mountains, houses, and vineyards – something which is important for every man’s heart.
The calm atmosphere is what both artists are bringing with their paintings no matter what depicted motive is. This kind of calmness is achieved by their choice of the palette and tones. They are making a phenomenon of melancholy so vivid and omnipresent. If using the bright colors they make them tinted by the nuance which seems like shade over the color. There’s no feeling of seizure or unexpected turns.
Although working in different media and techniques, masterly using the color, they are both successfully avoiding tightly defined form, making their art more sensitive and gentle.
