He was born painter

In the exhibition hall of the village Uva Oct. 17 opened the exposition of works of local artist Vladimir Kuznetsov. Presents watercolors, which are reproduced infinitely dear to the heart of the painter motives: flowering ivy and lilacs, gold of autumn and the first snow, sunny flowering fields. By virtue of him and challenging from a technical point of view, night scenery and transition states of nature, lasting just a minute - sunrises and sunsets, morning mists. Perfect technique, visual memory, stunning performance and, most importantly, the high spirit of the soul, a poetic perception of the world and love for his native land - these are the components of his work.

He first showed his work in early 1970 and since then, despite the circumstances of life, true to his vocation, giving every spare moment creativity. During this time he grew up in a master of lyrical watercolor landscapes. Natural impressions of nature serve him material for a pictorial stories, full of deep and reverent feeling for the motherland. And this quiet patriotism more high-sounding declarations. Sincerity and innermost feelings have always been the main value of Russian realist art, a tradition that continues to Kuznetsov. And in connection with his landscapes recall the lyrical prose Prishvin, K. Paustovsky, Y. Kazakov, which brought up a generation of people.

Kuznetsov did not receive special education, but was born an artist. This is exactly the case when the man did himself. Not complaining about his fate, far from the centers of culture, like all busy daily routine work, he found time for his hobbies, creating his own world on paper - a piercing light, calming quiet. In his watercolors familiar to many motives acquired special importance and significance. Talked about it his countrymen who came to the vernissage. It sounded dedicated his poetry and music. And with a special urgency became apparent need for such bright moments against the backdrop of everyday monotony. To do this, and there are "weird" people, including Vladimir Kuznetsov.

Confession of a master

As soon as the dictates of his hands violin bow touched the strings, it seemed: a breeze shook the lily, fragrant among friends at the lake in the woods, the first snow glittered with pearls, having covered the ground downy blanket, heard, like drops of autumn rain clattered on snikshim birch leaves. Looked at the pictures on which the artist captures a moment of nature, and saw these moments alive, taking place before our eyes, right here in the gallery.
