週日, 17 四月 2016

Sergei Kiselev's solo exhibition “Variations in blue” features his paintings from the series “Suggestive images” and “Spatial Layering”.

Blue is the dominating colour of both series where it’s used in full splendor and diversity from pale turquoise to deep purple. Each work is an artist’s attempt to go through different shades of blue, combine them together, or set in contrast.

The blue color is primarily associated with the sky, purity, innocence, mystery and incomprehensibility. It comprises the sacred,...

Erarta Gallery presents the solo exhibition by a St. Petersburg artist Alexander Oligerov. The first part of the project is dedicated to the bright would of color dreams, and the second — to the mysterious world they are born in.

People say it’s impossible to get “through the Looking Glass” and there is no such a thing as parallel reality. However, there is a world of dreams and it exists according to its own principles and laws with no connection to the scientific studies. They say dreams are black and...

On January 15 Erarta Galleriy in St.Petersburg will open the exhibition “Line”.

Protogenes immediately identified the stranger by the perfect line that he’d drawn.

The painter Vladimir Comelfo presents his new project under the title “Line”. One might say, what can be easier for an artist than drawing a line.

 Arsen Avetisyan, Sergey Kondrashkin and Armen Gasparyan reflect on the origin and formation of tactile sensation of figure...

From September 16 Erarta presents an exhibition “Prolonging the Summer” by Marina Fedorova.

The sea is a very attractive phenomenon. Every time I’m next to it, I realize that even the most genius painter is only an amateur compared to Creator. This work is changing every second and never repeats. I'm not trying to depict the sea: the heroes of my works are people who can’t help looking at sea surface and waves.
