About Alexander Kosenkov
1959 Born in Ekimchan Amur region. 1984 Studied at the studio of artist Natalia Chizhik in Akademgorodok (until 1998). 1995 The first part in the exhibitions: Â«Hamburg score-95Â». Gallery Â«Green PyramidÂ». Since 2007 member of the Â«Free CultureÂ» Society, St Petersburg. Since 2010 member of the Union of Russian Artists. The nature of my painting is based on a dense and resonant mixing French art and Russian avant-garde art, the poetics of Â«Jack of DiamondsÂ» on the free picturesque St.Petersburg romantic expressionism. It is very important to create a special tension between the emphasis prosaic subjects of the paintings and the color and compositional energy, which should occur on the canvas. I do not do copying landscape or still life. For me, it is important to see the space-time, to create a self-contained world-in-themselves, to tell a story. It is always present, even in plotless works. To do this, looking at daily life, which otherwise seem mundane and boring, see the archetypal features of the world, to detect plastic formulas and color harmony, to find formal and semantic rhythms, to create a local story common themes of life in a given Euclidean space. And then there is a particular attraction life dark and bright patches of color on the canvas, and the interaction of divergent lines, which are due to my own Â«non-EuclidicityÂ» easily and naturally can intersect at infinity, even though their apparent parallelism of the original ... "Works by Kosenkov are decorative, emotional, on the base of them there is the search of expressive colorplastic. As a rule the essential nerve is the addition of black lines in the process of making of the representation flat. Painting for him is a new quality of color."
