From the 20th of April till the 20th of May the TNK Art Gallery is holding an exhibition of modern photography "Life is beautiful” representing works by artographer Anya (Anna Andreeva) and photographer Evgenyi Tripolsky.
Contemporary art is a versatile, complicated and booming phenomenon. Things that were topical yesterday today are already part of history. New rates of creation and perception of art objects determined the role of the photography in the context of contemporary art process, which evolves towards understanding and acceptance of the photography as full-fledged form of art. Modern photography is an art of self-expression, a reference to present culture. In search of its own expressive language the photography has gained aesthetic independence, has become an integral part of the art culture with its own traditions and perspectives.
Works by art-photographer Anya (Anna Andreeva) represented in the exposition appear as philosophical reflections on the author’s understanding and experience of present reality. Each photo is a completed and high-grade work of art with hidden meaning and subtext, inducing a viewer to think and consider. All of the photos are different in terms of composition, visual language and mood, but they are united by major issue – special attitude towards the image, inner ethics and high level of the author’s professional skills. Works by art-photographer Anya were successfully exhibited in Moscow and at the largest international art-fairs –"World Art Dubai” (Dubai, UAE) and "Asia Contemporary Art Show” (Hong Kong, China).
Works by Evgenyi Tripolsky perform endless search for a moment of ever-elusive reality, active light, geometry of planes and internal meanings. The photos made by Evgenyi Tripolsky reveal exactly those moments that pass by the majority of us. And this makes them beautiful. He basically shoots on his mobile phone, does not make any staging frames and never uses Photoshop. The author holds a dialogue with the viewer and himself. The artist has only one second to do this… at this very second he manages not only to capture a picture, but to create a special language of communication with the world around us – barely perceptible, just a few millimeters, which distinguish a genuine work of art.
