Since the turn of the millennium, figurative painting has been making a comeback worldwide. For a long time she was marginalized as a depiction of reality by the sensuous means of color, by the power of imagination and the pleasure of observing the reality surrounding us: by abstract expressionism after 1945, then by a multitude of new postmodernist currents of the 1960s and 1970s. Minimal and concept art, performance, video and installation art further pushed the reduction of artistic means and depersonalization of art. Artists, curators and critics proclaimed the “death of painting”.
Vija Zarina, 1961 Riga – tätig ebd. Der Moos, 2017, Öl auf Leinwand, signiert, datiert, 200 x 200 cm
For this reason, the exhibition “TVD ART” in Berlin-Charlottenburg will be dedicated to pure “painting” with artists of the gallery, some of them in the compendium “Women in Art” published by the Austrian art historian Reinhold Fuchs in 2013 as a world history of women’s art from the Middle Ages to Today are listed.
Figurative images, portraits of acquaintances and relatives, such as the self-portrait, form the focal point of this TVD ART show, which combines experienced reality with decorative dream-like productions. Delicacy and sophistication, the joy of the smallest detail are faced with trivial reality, sovereign mixed models of the Old Masters as the classical modern, to play an ironic game, uses photographic templates, but then again alienate them: the traditional self-portrait returns The Latvian painter Elena Tarasenko literally turned her back to her, with her head turned away from the viewer, her hairstyle with fashionably painted fingernails, this in the close-up.
Anna Baklane, 1982 Riga – tätig ebd. Deer Diary, 2018, Öl auf Leinwand, signiert, datiert, 120 x 100 cm
In the cabinet then the summer pictures of the beach, sun, sand and sea of the Ukrainian Svitlana Galdetska, whose works are also to be found in the Art Museum of Kiev. One must look closely: this is actually about painting and not a snapshot via camera from last vacation.
