The art of Andreenkov
Unique edition. Collector's set of graphic works
The central theme of Andreenkovís art - painting itself: color, form and rhythm. Working only with color and form requires a sophisticated artistic and aesthetic sense, which only a few possess even among artists. To organize visual space as Andreenkov making it bright, yet invading; allowing the color the self value, not to exaggerate it, but on the contrary, to be able to clean it up Ė this can only be achieved by a great master.
During his long creative life Andreenkov worked through and created a series of stunning collections, such as "Rhythm", "Verticals", "Harmonies", "Constructions", "Transformations" - 2 pieces (1962 and 1963) of this series are part of the main exhibition of the Tretyakov Gallery.
A special role is played by the Diagonal in Andreenkovís art, a lot of compositions are based on it. Diagonal as one of the most powerful measurements was very popular at the avant-garde, and a bright admirer was the architect Konstantin Melnikov, with whom Vladimir Andreenkov was friends with. Andreenkovís Diagonals are always ascending. Not a single abstractionist artist, using the geometric lines, has ever reached such perfection of Diagonals as Vladimir Emelyanovich. Acting on a hunch, "as measure and beauty would say," Andreenkov saw the invisible - the aspiration of the soul. Whether it's a painting, a drawing, a sculpture or a relief Ė a sweeping force of unexpected beauty coming from the rising ďAndreenkovís Diagonal" miraculously transforms the living space, "stepping beyond blurred human consciousness."
In one of the last sculptures, the "Herald," Vladimir Emelyanovich managed to make a clear warning from a fuzzy premonition and showed the way - up Diagonally. Just oblique line, yet sounds like "rapid Song" or a call - to rise and seek further drive of not yet inhabited multidimensional measures "idioplasmic space."
Finally "Andreenkovís Diagonal" are optimistic, as a promise of new discoveries, not yet manifested plans of a multifaceted, ever changing coloring of the sound and meaning of the Prime law of the universe, which is headed by culture.
