GALERIE LAZAREW PARIS
14 Rue Du Perche, Paris, France
"Why red? To me, it's blood coursing through the whole body, it's the animal drive for life, the omnipresent strength of the physical, dominating every other form of expression, such as the soul's, the spirit's or the mind's." This is how Sergey Kononov, Ukrainian prodigy of twenty-one years old, introduces his recent work, put together under the title "Red": A striking portrait gallery, between realism and neo-expressionism that tenaciously depicts the crucial time of growing into a young adult. The artiste invites us to visit - especially the narrow-framed ones - his work as one would visit a zoo. It's only by catching the looks of this tough, under pressure, youth that one can pick up a glint of humanity, of hope and greatness. What is growing up ? That is the question main question in his work. He paints with oil and aerosol spray ; he likes to mix these two techniques, which both possess a shine and the same thickness. Aerosol spry brings a blur that fits the spirit of our time.
