About The Artwork

"Northern Star "speaks about one of the most precious moments in my life – the moments of insight. It is when I have to unfold to myself, knowing that after that, my most cherished wish, the most sincere one, the one reached through suffering, is about to come true. I can hear its call, so the heart must go, follow the point on the horizon, follow this magnetic pull and drive towards beyond. I know I never reach it, but I always see it ahead, which remains a constant impetus to cognition. ✔ The painting is signed on the front and back. It is on a gallery-wrapped canvas with finished gray edges and comes ready to hang. "Northern Star" was conceived and completed through the winter of 2010 at the Island Studio, Jerusalem. About a series "First Silence": It's an escape, a sanctuary from the noisy, rusting industrial slum. Everything eventually returns to nature - like a pastoral coral reef growing on a battleship lichen and mosses engulf factory buildings. There is nothing better than to be in the middle of nowhere, lying alone in the green grass, and by listening to silence to observe the early morning fog. These are paintings bring appeasement and sit comfortably in your home. No nudes, blood, or pieces that engage through discomfort. However, pictures are as thought-provoking as they are beautiful. Alexey spent plenty of time outdoors in childhood, watching the stunning wilderness, cultivating his respect for it, and absorbing intuitive knowledge. Later, being interested in philosophy and inner human space, he was unsatisfied with the banal copying of reality but has always striven to create something that could have more in-deep meanings. By combining and calibrating the balance between abstract and surrealism, he found that he could get as close to his vision as possible. Alexey called his style - visual philosophy. The artistic contemplation allows viewers to plunge into non-verbal subconscious spheres of the mind. About the artist: Alexey Adonin explores the point of convergence between abstraction and surrealism to create a channel of communication between his inner world and the viewers, not only to share his personal vision but also and especially to invite viewers to elaborate their personal interpretations and narratives, establishing deep involvement both in the emotional aspect and in the intellectual one.

Artist Statement Alexey explores the point of convergence between abstraction and surrealism to create a channel of communication between his inner world and his audience. He strives not only to share his personal vision but to invite his viewers to forge their own personal interpretations and narratives by involving them both emotionally and intellectually. His approach to his work is without preconception, allowing first for randomness. Alexey then takes advantage of the mind’s ability to derive order out of chaos. Finally, he strives to move away from banal copying reality toward creating one of his own—something that somehow reflects his inner world. Biography Raised in Eastern Europe, Belarus, the only child in a family of his mother, a building engineer, and his father, an art teacher, Alexey's artistic path began at a young age. He started attending Children's Art School drawing classes when he was nine. Alexey studied under the guidance of gifted teachers, including his father, one of his time's non-standard and advanced painters. Later, he went to an art college that further helped develop his artistic skills and gave him a sizeable practical base. In the early '90s, Alexey and his family relocated to Israel, where he resides and works today. Alexey has exhibited locally and internationally. His works have also been acquired by notable private collections worldwide. He has received numerous awards, most recently from Bruxelles Art Vue Foundation.
