Dancers #4 Painting by Vadim Puyandaev

view additional image 1
Nearly 35 years of dancing with my wife, choreographer and dancer Erika Tsimbrovsky, yielded many dance-themed paintings and sculptures. When immersed in Contact Improvisation dancing, I connect with other dancers, and when taking a rest, I observe the joyful experience and make sketches of fellow dancers. This inside-out and outside-in approach captures the dynamic of intensity and relaxation in dancing bodies. The bodies are depicted using unstable, abstract forms and dynamic, expressive colors, thereby instilling a feeling of movement or movement potential, as the bodies playfully appear and disappear on the canvas. I am also drawn to the social and collaborative aspect of dance. As a painter, I spend a great deal of time alone and this energy of collaboration and socializing gives me a sense of connection to the universe and something larger than myself. Because the collective group energy is what draws me to this subject, I do not paint individual faces or details on the dancers. The abstract energy and combination of colors produce the emotional meaning of the work.

ARTIST STATEMENT: Whether it’s birds fornicating on a picnic table or a dancer losing themselves in the present moment, I want the viewer to hear the music of color because I believe color is the essence of painting. Working in traditional genres such as landscape, still life, and figurative painting where the format is already set, I have an opportunity to create expressive non-narrative canvases that, via composition, energy, and, especially, color, evoke emotional responses. My work often contrasts stillness with motion, solid objects with flat backgrounds, and painting in different shades of a chosen hue, resulting in qualities of dynamism and beauty. From a childlike disregard and a willingness to follow blindly the movement of my hand across the canvas, I allow form to materialize naturally without provoking it. Fine lines—scratches layered over contrasting chunky brushstrokes, daubs of light—unearth figures, become suggestions of life in the dappled world of the painting. Objects are partially obstructed because I want to leave it to the viewer’s imagination to create worlds or stories within the painting. Viewing my art is not a passive activity; it is a dynamic act of joy-making. Like a moving musical piece, my art is abstracted, ordered, and emotionally charged. ***BIO: Vadim Puyandaev (visual artist/performer) has worked as a painter, sculptor, and designer for almost thirty years and has been participating in multimedia performances and installations since 1994.
