Olga Trushnikova (1963 – )

Gallery

Olga Trushnikova was born in Ulyanovsk (Russia) in 1963; she graduated from the Moscow Institute of Arts. Since 1984, she has regularly participated in regional, national and all-Union exhibitions, and was admitted into the Moscow Artists’ Union in 1995. Trushnikova now lives in Moscow.

Olga’s works are rich in colour and are mainly about her perspective of leisure cities. Colour is a way for the artist to give form to things and to set the mood by means of projecting real emotions; even shadows are created in colour. This brings liveliness to her paintings.

Trushnikova naturally combines the traditions of Russian folk art and the energy of post-impressionism in her artwork. She further constructs figures in geometric patterns and wooden textures, which are employed in her sculptural creations. Sense of light, harmony and pleasure are emanating from her paintings, even simple stories consist of composite shapes and colourful palettes.

As a basis of her paintings, Olga Trushnikova takes an Old Russian concept of space through enlarging the primary figures to convey their significance. Large figures against a small town with small houses and gardens emphasize the magnitude of a man and not his environment. Her painting “Old City Music”, depicts three street musicians playing cello, guitar and pipe—a Russian folk music wind instrument. The cellist in front has his back facing us, while the wind musician in the middle looks out of the canvas as if he is inviting a viewer into his world. The guitarist is placed furthest away, wearing an outfit that echoes that of the cellist’s, in contrast to the buildings in the background that are simple and plain. The figures on the right are also painted in detail and in brilliant colours.

Olga’s oeuvres portray her desire to capture human emotions and behaviours in ordinary life. Her works are in collections in Ulyanovsk, Zelenograd and Togliatti art museums, as well as in private collections in Russia, USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, and France.

奧爾加﹒特鲁什尼科瓦  (1963 – )

生於俄羅斯的烏里揚諾夫斯克,畢業於莫斯科藝術學院。自1984年起,她便積極參與本地或海外國際性展覽,並於1995年加入莫斯科藝術家聯盟,現在莫斯科工作和生活。

奧爾加的作品色彩豐富,多以尋常生活為畫題。畫家利用色彩塑造事物的形態,透過它營造氣氛,反映心中的情感,在其作品裏,連影子都佈滿悅目的顔色,生動活潑。作品巧妙地結合了俄羅斯民間藝術的傳統及後印象派的精髓,筆下的人物線條硬朗,呈幾何化及帶木刻的質感,此源於畫家的雕塑創作,畫中人物與她的雕塑作品相近,別具味道。她畫的城鎮悠悠閒閒,強調了自得其樂的生活態度,畫面裏散發著光線、和諧與喜悅的感覺,以其獨特的形狀及繽紛的色彩訴説著平凡但動人的故事。

奧爾加以俄羅斯對空間處理的傳統手法作爲她處理畫面的基礎,就是透過把主角放大去傳達其重要性,宏大的人物佔了畫面大部份空間,與背景細小的城鎮屋子形成對比,突顯了人的重要。如《舊城樂》中描寫了三位街頭音樂家——大提琴手、管樂及結他手。畫家把人物編排在右邊,造型有趣,人物置曡有緻,提琴手稍為背向觀衆,把大提琴的重量展露出來。中間吹管樂的正望向觀衆,他的眼神媚惑彷如提出了接觸的訴求,結他手位於後方,他的衣飾和提琴手互相呼應,衣料上的幾何紋與背景協調。以舊城為背景,建築物簡單樸素,右上方背景被淡化,左方則刻畫仔細,色彩跳躍多變,左右形成一虛一實的構圖。旁邊的小狗暗示這場音樂表演並無觀衆,但音樂表演者仍然作樂自娛,為寧靜的街道加添情趣。

奧爾加的作品表現了她對捕捉情感及生活行爲的渴望,其作品收藏於烏里揚諾夫斯克、澤列諾格勒及陶里亞蒂藝術館,私人收藏現遍及法國、德國、意大利、美國、澳洲、瑞士及俄羅斯等。
