  • About the artwork

    A travers une galerie de portraits saisissants, Sergey Kononov dépeint avec acharnement et sans concession l’âge charnière du jeune adulte.

    Empruntant au « style sévère » de la peinture soviétique des années 1950, au portrait baroque, à l'expressionnisme abstrait et même à l’iconographie byzantine, l’artiste ukrainien de 25 ans impose sa personnalité avec force et intelligence.

    Ses premières oeuvres frappent par la beauté animale de ses personnages, innervée de violence et soulignée par la présence récurrente des chiens. Cette violence s’exprime en vase clos et montre le désarroi des jeunes face à un monde de possibilités dont ils ne savent que faire.

    Depuis quelques années, Sergey Kononov mêle à la précision de la peinture à l’huile, la fulgurance de la bombe aérosol.

    « Le flou est à l’image de notre siècle, où tous se passe très vite. On fait tout pour économiser
    du temps et en fin de compte, on oublie de vivre. »
