Touch Art Gallery is pleased to present “Autumn Colors” a solo show for 25th painting anniversary of Vladimir Volosov from September 22nd to October 19th. The opening reception will take place on Friday September 26th from 4:30 to 7 PM. The exhibition will featuring oil painting on canvas.
Vladimir Volosov was born in 1937 in St. Petersburg. Doctor of Science, Professor, winner of the State Prize, author of more than 100 scientific articles, in 1990 he left scientific career and completely devoted himself to painting.”One can find, though rarely, people for whom to live one life is not enough. And they manage to live several lives within the same God-given amount of time…”- so wrote about him in press. Now he is author of several hundreds paintings. Main direction in painting – lyrical realism and abstract compositions. In the ten months since his arrival to USA, he has won two gold medals at an exhibition at the «AsaArtGallery» in New York. Volosov’s works are currently held in galleries and private collections in Russia, USA, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Israel, and Japan.
“After the historic collapse of Berlin Wall, in 1993-1994 I participated in a very important exhibition of German, Jewish and Russian artists “Zwei Welten- Eine Kunst” – “Two Worlds – One Art. ”This exhibition traveled all over Berlin and its neighborhoods and was aimed at uniting the cultures of the Western World and Post-communist countries.
I do not speak great English, but I speak the languages, which are understandable by every nation: the language of Science and the language of Art”. “In 1960, I used the language of Science (formulas and experiments) to communicate with American physicists, Nobel Prize winners, pioneers and creators of lasers and nonlinear optics Charles Townes and Nicholas Bloembergen. During the last 25 years of my artistic creativity, I used the language of Fine Art to make more than 900 oil paintings that are spread all over the world: Russia, USA, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Israel and Japan.”
I hope that my personal exhibition will continue the tradition of historic cultural relationships between New England and Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Please join us for the reception on Friday September 26 from 4:30 to 7 PM, meet the artist and enjoy light refreshment.
