Theatre and Dolls in Vellum gallery

Theater and Dolls is the exhibition project organized by Vellum gallery under assistance of Karina Shanshieva. The exposition is based on over 30 pictures and graphic works by Georgiy Vizel (born in 1912). By the way this is a first personal exhibition of this artist held in Moscow. Moscow has an opportunity to see works by a very talented and rare artist. Vizel is a theatrical artist first of all. Probably it explains the intention of organizers of the project to unite painting and author’s doll: “Actors” will settle in magnificent scenery of the master for a while. Gallery of Karina Shanshieva will represent about 40 author’s dolls by contemporary Moscow artists.

A considerable part of the exposition is occupied with scenery to Don Juan.

Georgiy Vizel is the honoured worker of arts of UzSSR, the artist of theatre. He was born in Kazakhstan, studied in Moscow at V. Favorsky. The artist managed to combine pictorial decoration with constructive design of scenery.

The director of Vellum gallery Lyubov Agafonova: “One can see in George Vizel’s work constructivism (in his decorations there is a prevalence of logic arrangement of accents over the emotional component). However one can find different shades of moods and feelings in the works displayed at the exhibition, to feel the originality of different historical epoch and cultures. Forms are executed with wide stroke. They are structural in Cézanne’s manner and thorough. In his work the artist addressed either to Russian school (of such masters as A. Volkov and V. Ufimtsev) or to national culture of Uzbekistan staying the artist of the European school”.

The exhibition will be opened till December, 17.
