A Dedication to Famous Painters. Weeding

“For my latest exhibition I decided to create a cycle “A Dedication to Famous Painters”, which is a response to Anselm Kiefer’s painting “To the Unknown Painter” and gratitude to the master for his support and solidarity. Gratitude for all the masters – famous painters.” Tatjana Krivenkova, 2018.

Tatjana Krivenkova’s exhibition, in its full title “A Dedication to Famous Painters. Weeding”, originated as a feedback from thinking and reflecting on the process of painting and about her choice. It is dedicated to masters, who have influenced and developed the world of colours as we know it today. In her typical language of painting, Tatjana Krivenkova gives substance to the colour and the shape, and to the matter – consistence and materiality. Specific names of the masters are not named. The exhibition is dedicated to all the famous painters!
