Sometimes researches of art critic become akin to the work of psychologist. Trying to understand artist’s creativity the art critic looks into a deep well called “soul”. And sometimes at the height of sunny noon one can see the stars there.
If painting is a way of minding and feeling, the colorful pictures are reflection of artist’s soul. These ideas came to my mind when I was looking at the works of the artist from Tashkent, Alexander Tyurin. The point is that my thirty – year experience in the art criticism allows me to say that often in analysis of a creative way of some artist the words “sincerity” and “soul” become basic. Alexander has made his soul to work long since. His intellect, intuition, consciousness and subconscious are involved and combined in this process.
Alexander Tyurin obtained his art education in Tashkent. During his young years he permanently strove to new knowledge, emotions and extraordinary impressions studying the treasure of Central Asian culture, its history and archeology. In his archive there is a book of poems “The Monologue of My Soul”. When A. Tyurin studied in the art college, he took part in archeological expeditions; his trips over Central Asia and Russia number many kilometers.
The contacts with archeologists found reflection in “Landscape #2″ where he expressed feelings of modern person about excavation of ancient settlement. … Many centuries ago here, at this place, boiled the active life, but the time has passed and just ruins of walls narrate us about ancient city…
When he was a student he passed through the influence of academism – he began his education in the Institute for I. Repin in Leningrad, graduated from the Tashkent Institute of Theatre and Art in the speciality of monumental painting. Valentin Zhmakin, a famous representative of realistic school, supervised his diploma work. In those years Alexander perfected his skills in drawing, explored the problems of fine arts and mastered the culture of colour. The creativity of Vandyke, working out the concept of “picturesque”, was a subject of his special interest. In search of expressiveness in the painting he works much. And this is a basic school for the artist.
