June 2, 2010 5:47 pm

The art exhibition of a promising young artist Anna Filimonova that took place in the exhibition hall «ART&SHOCK» (Ryazan department of Moscow State University of Culture and Art) in February-March, 2008 was a great success. Her creative work stands out against a background of many featureless works of her contemporaries who unfortunately take the form itself as the only purpose of their art and often use banal phrases about «a rare creative idea» as a shield against critics. Anna Filimonova creates her own unique world that is full of colour energy and images. Her bright vivid pictures make impression of an enchanting sight, a wonderful fairytale in which every spectator can find his favourite story. We can see a transparent «Lagoon» full of air and coolness and a «Spring wind» that takes us away, and «Fire» that blazes up and captivates us by its force and energy. Someone can see a piano and a loving couple in the picture «France». The picture «Cat-like eye» with its intricate interweaving of lines and color spots seems to reflect the whole universe.
Anna Filimonova is an artist with unusual perception of the world. The concept of her art is in the idea that «the whole world is eternal energy and every subject in it has its own energy content and internal force». Submitting to this philosophy abstract images of Anna Filimonova assume spirituality, they really start living thanks to the energy of image created by the artist on canvas.
The technique used by Anna Filimonova is decorative to a large extent. Bright spots of acrylic combined with elaborate graphic technique… This method allows the artist to get an amazing variety of composition decisions. In the picture «Frozen way» we can see vivid dynamic brush strokes of violet-blue and filigree tracery that covers the entire picture like frost covers windows. In the picture «Wave» the artist combines brush strokes with skillful use of a spatula and then completes the work making the details more well-defined. The picture «Fireplace» seems to be painted under an impulse: flashes of warm orange, yellow and red create the sensation of heat and feeling of the flame energy.
It should be noted that Anna Filimonova comes from a creative family, her parents are artists and she took after them in occupational choice. Anna got good professional knowledge in Ryazan Art School named after G. Vagner and then at the Design Department of Ryazan Branch of Moscow State University of Culture and Arts. The exhibition «Philosophy of colour» was praised by many artists-teachers. They are proud to watch the professional growth of their pupil, her original conceptual compositions.
It would be desirable to wish the young Ryazan artist creative success, many interesting exhibitions and unusual art techniques in working out original philosophic ideas.
