In his paintings and panels can be clearly seen, as varied his art. Early works on fabrics and textile collages, which look through application of the logs against the background of the bright spots of color. More recent work of Novikov and textile panels 'Horizons', is much more restrained and succinct. The idea of the horizon, the division of space, preserve the integrity of the picture. All works by Timur Novikov cheerful, otvyazny. They really are! This is not nervous, not simulated, and healthy living and joy. It public opinion on everything without shame. Zagnannost not in a corner, not aggression and indifference, and life as it is.
I am interested in 'Portrait of Timur Novikov with bony hands' (1988), performed by Eugene Kozloff. This pattern is evident at once when entrance to the first room. It stands out from all others. Rather original to see the opening of the lattice of Timur Novikov in evening dress, with her hands from the bones with a known sign of a skull and crossbones. I would also like to highlight the work of Vadim Ovchinnikov, whose work is devoted to the last room. Environmental songs, icons, such as 'window' (1988), very romantic, simple, carry something unearthly, cosmic. Works by artists Ivan Sotnikov not cause I have not bad, not good feelings. All of his work, I would call primitive.
But if you think more seriously, that's good! When not caused by bad feelings! Works of Oleg Kotelnikov ridiculous and I can say a little crazy. Of all his works, I can select a single 'Boogie ee' (1985). Hipsters aroused 'New' great sympathy. Painting for me is very positive. Performed in a harmonious, vibrant colors. Quite simply, schematically, has a certain power and meaning. As for the gallery, paintings nekrorealistov busy, it's not for me. All these manifestations are absurd and only cause disgust. All of the exhibition, it is a challenge to society and protest. The appeal of life in those years. Artists are not considered necessary to depend on the circumstances. All the emotions they had experienced at the pictures in the form of mocking. Pictures may shock, frighten, amuse, surprise. But they are all very peculiar. For me, first of all, I can say that the following: I agree with columnist Agunovich, which compares with the exhibition 'Time Machine'. Yes! for me it's 'Time Machine'. I went to this show and fell like a different world. It is difficult to judge bad is it, this world, or good. But I can say one thing: 'I was in another world to me! "
