The Illusory Stillness, an international online solo oil painting exhibition by Vadim Puyandaev opens on November 25 and will continue through December 25, 2021.
Vadim's oil paintings capture the ineffability of childhood, delight in the fantastic ordinary, awakening in the viewer flickers of recollection that float like dust on a shaft of light. As expressed in his statement, he is perpetually fascinated by movement—the perambulatory, dancing body, birds on the verge of flight, the transfer of light as it traverses and reflects varying surfaces—and images evoking this movement repeatedly emerge in his work. Form materializes naturally and unprovoked, from a childlike disregard and a willingness to follow blindly the movement of his hand across the canvas. Fine lines—scratches layered over contrasting chunky brushstrokes, daubs of light—unearth figures, suggestions of life in the dappled world of the painting.
