14 — 30 July. Alexey Bekrenev “When you shut your eyes tight”
A solo exhibition of the artist, who lived several years in the North of Spain and brought to St. Petersburg a special feeling of «pure» color. Each color presented at the exhibition is unique. In this project the artist reflects on what a person sees when the eyes are screwed up and how does the process of converting the «inner vision» into an infinite number of colors go. The artist’s research will be shown in a series of abstract paintings and video in which he develops the idea of creating colors from light and darkness as well as captures the transformation of pure contemplation into color images. The author believes that one doesn’t need a mediator in creating an artwork – all you need is to shut your eyes tight.
