This exhibition features about 15 new large size oil paintings created by Savadov in 2018. It is built around the idea of big dreams. Big dream of a big guy (Gulliver diptych), big dreams of a small guy (Napoleon, and Napoleon inspired imagery), American dream (Angel with ‘American’ wings) and my favorite ‘Thunderbolt’ roller-coaster with an extended female hand and her index-finger electrifying a spark reminiscent of a child dream.
Savadov is a big guy well visible in a room among his paintings. His style reminds the manner of Neo Rauch. Each painting is perfectly executed. Visually, this exhibition is a fine compilation of variety of images, symbols, objects and figures. The artist says: “I simply swim in the ocean of images important for me personally and as an artist.”
For those who want to “swim” in a small universe created by Savadov come and see this show on view through December 17, 2018.
