Vladimir Zagorov, solo exhibition, ‘Yellow Movement’ at Graham’s Fine Art Gallery

1 September – 15 October 2016


Graham’s Fine Art Gallery is proud to present the solo exhibition, ‘Yellow Movement’ by abstract artist, Vladimir Zagorov.

 

An extract from a catalogue, written by Aleksey Boyko, for an exhibition at the State Russian Museum (St Petersburg) describes Zagorov’s ‘Yellow Movement’ as such: “…we find once more the ‘sunny mood’, the reception of the sun, the world with the sun, the bright Universe. Yet the sun here is not a source, but a lense, focusing those streams directed towards us from beyond its borders. An essentially similar thought process led Abbot Suger to the theory of divine light, influencing the architecture of Gothic cathedrals, sanctioning the broad use of stained-glass. And the experiments of Vladimir Zagorov seek to acquire a spatial dimension in which man could fully join the yellow movement…”

 

Born in 1951, in southern Russia, Zagorov graduated from the I Repin St Petersburg State Academy Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, having worked under the acclaimed authority of Andrei Mylnikov. Zagorov’s artworks can be seen across collections in Europe, most notably in the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg..
