Parisian Salon d'Automne
Rhythm. Shape. Construction
Ivan Titov’s artistic realism is like a good documentary film; good meaning genuine, unvarnished. Life as it is.
Painting, which reflects the melting time, but doesn’t permit to forget. Painting, which gives a wonderful possibility to unwind the time back, and look more attentively into the eyes of Abkhazian boy in a red hood. The eyes with such a dignity, so wise, that you want to ask “Do you know what the future holds? But how?” and when left without the answer, swallow the lump, remembering the stories of friends about the traces of war, which never ends but only calms down.
Realism, apart from the repulsive “isms”, is first of all the reality, though everyone with its own. But say please, who would voluntarily refuse the life of quiet joy... When even naturmorte’s title “The Flowers and Citruses” render you sentimental, begetting desire to touch the bleu petal, feel bitter smell of orange and correct a curtain… Could that keep you indifferent?!
