MERCURE MOSCOW PAVELETSKAYA
present the first joint art project
Guests will be presented the works of honoured artist-designer of the Russian Federation Stanislav Chermensky and the geometric abstractions of Nino Kuprava. The exhibition is open for visitors from the 21st of February 2015 to the 1st of May, 2015 address: Bakhrushina Street 11, Mercure Moscow Paveletskaya
It is not accidental that the first joint art project begins with the exposition of the Stanislav Chermensky’s works. His name and works are inextricably linked to the newest story of one of the best theatre museums in the world - A.A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum, which is located on the same street as the three building complex of the hotel group ACCOR. Starting the year of 2015 by displaying the museum level collection, Mercure Moscow Paveletskaya and Shazina Gallery invite you to appreciate a new art platform where tradition and modern culture harmoniously coexist.
The legacy of Stanislav Chermensky (1950-2013) belongs to the rare instance, where the knowledge of the preceding culture and excellent mastering of plastic skills are combined with the talent of a great artist. Whether it is painting or graphics, designs or museum exhibitions, objects or a collage, everything made by Chermensky was distinguished by high artistic skill.
The activities of Stanislav Chermensky as the leading designer of the museum and exhibition spaces deserve special attention. The exhibition Beauty Structures consists of paintings, collages, objects, and photos of museum exhibitions such as “Maya” for the 80th anniversary of M.M.Plisetskaya, “Masquerade” by Meyerhold - Golovin, “Gala dinner in Moscow countryside Manor”. A significant part of the works is of collectable value and will be shown for the first time.
Adagio space presents the graceful series of geometric abstraction style paintings by Nino Kuprava. The works were created independently, but the exposition looks as if it was made specifically for this interior. This painting style is known as the Post-Painterly Abstraction, and it is inscribed in the history of art by such names as Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, Josef Albers, Richard Paul Lohse, Vladimir Andreenkov. Nino’s paintings remind us of the dance of geometric figures and colours, patterns and shapes, but the number of possible reasonable combinations of motions is infinite, which is the intricacy. Finding the elusive goal of logic and reason – a beautiful equilibrium – intuition helps. And if someone is able to find harmonious combination, style is created and not only in paintings but also in life. The style provides the space with individual contents, and gives personal meaning to life.

Last few years, she has been focusing on special projects and consultancies in the field of hospitality and on international endeavours of Shazina Gallery in the United Kingdom, Spain, the United States, France, etc. Infatuation with painting started during the student years in the Netherlands as the way to achieve inner harmony. Her passion for exact sciences, geometry and logics influenced the choice of the artistic manner. Nino’s creative activity remains her inner urge. But, just like any other artist, she developed the desire to share the results of the contemplations and the mastered plastic skills.
