Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery presents "Vadim Gushchin" opening reception
Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery will present the first solo exhibition for Russian artist, Vadim Gushchin (b. Novosibirsk, 1963). In the artist’s simple studio, a room in his Moscow home that doubles as a dining room and guestroom, Gushchin photographs still lives of common, every day objects. The objects include food, books, ephemera, buttons, and various kitchen tools.
Kazimir Malevich (b. Kiev, 1878 – 1935) and the Suprematism movement is rooted in Gushchin’s minimalist compositions. Malevich’s art and philosophy has had a stronghold on the art world since its small movement began in the Soviet Union in the 1920’s. In brief, Malevich invented the term Suprematism, since his belief that the purity of art was through color and shape, transcending the image.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through October 26.
