Andrey Remnev, Contemporary Russian painter2

(0 votes)

Women play an important role in Remnev’s paintings, often taking up a large part of the picture plan contrasted by a miniature town. This compositional technique makes the women look powerful. Remnev uses this traditional device of shrinking the space around the main character to give them a feeling of monumentality or importance. It was a technique employed by Renaissance artists, particularly Leonardo da Vinci. The women in his paintings possess a universal quality of grandeur and mystery. Remnev explains, “My characters are not real women, but symbols.” He is not looking to make his women have specific character traits, but to stand for a concept or ideal. Remnev believes that art in general is accountable for what it brings to the world. He wants his art to bring beauty to the world, to create a type of eternal beauty.
