  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Through a gallery of striking portraits, Sergey Kononov depicts relentlessly and without concession the pivotal age of the young adult. Borrowing from the “severe style” of 1950s Soviet painting, baroque portraiture, abstract expressionism and even Byzantine iconography, the 23-year-old Ukrainian artist imposes his personality with force and intelligence. His ability to put together a dense three-dimensional pictorial fabric testifies to an erudition as astonishing as his technical virtuosity. His first works are striking for the animal beauty of his characters, innervated with violence and underlined by the recurring presence of dogs. This violence is expressed in isolation and shows the dismay of young people in the face of a world of possibilities they do not know what to do with. If the most recent works seem more peaceful, the disparate treatment of bodies and decorations, the choice of attitudes and looks, give the works a strange atmosphere. The protagonists may be anchored in a trivial space, they don't seem quite real and give the impression of taking us to task. For several years, Sergey Kononov has been mixing the precision of oil painting with the fulgurance of the aerosol can. “The blur is a reflection of our century, where everything happens very quickly. We do everything to save time and in the end we forget to live. "
