The CAN BONI Gallery will show a strange "HERE AND THERE"
Very soon the gallery will host the presentation of the personal exhibition of paintings by artist Andrey Shchurok
On Friday, October 4 at 19.00 in the gallery "CAN BONI" (c/ Forn de la Gloria, 8 / c/ de Can Boneo, 2A) will be a presentation of the solo exhibition of paintings by the Belarusian artist Andrei Shchurok entitled "Here and There".
Andrei Shchurok was born in Minsk (Belarus), graduated from the College of Arts (Department of Painting) and the Faculty of Graphic Art of the State University in Vitebsk. Lately he lives and works in Spain (Palma de Mallorca). His works are in private collections of Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Belarus, Switzerland, Russia, Spain and Latvia.
Andrei Shchurok mainly writes in oil. A distinctive feature of the creative process of the artist is that, blurring the boundaries of conditional perception, he does not conflict with reality and does not seek to deliberately recreate it, existing in it in harmony. In full accordance with his nature as a traveler, whose highest archetypal expression is the image of the Wanderer, Andrei Shchurok gladly admits when his art is called "strange", noting that this is even a compliment. It is in the "strange" paintings that one can constantly discover something new, showing the peculiarities of the spiritual path and the individual noses of their creator. Such art has true value and, according to the artist, never gets bored.
- "Here and There" - it's a 10 year stretch of my life, says Andrei Shchurok. By the way, it was 10 years ago that I first came to Mallorca as a tourist, and today I live here. The works presented at the exhibition are the result of my work from 2008 to 2019. Some of them were written in Belarus, in my homeland (There), most of them on my dear heart Mallorca (Here). Hence the name of my new exhibition. By the way, I am not a manifest artist at all. Art is organic to my life. I equally enjoy the struggle with canvas and, on the contrary, when the creative process is easy. I look forward to meeting you at the CAN BONI Gallery on 4 October at 19.00 to introduce you to my work. See you soon! - The artist comments.
According to art critics, the art of Andrei Shchurok blurs the solid facets of perception, capturing the transformation processes of the forms of this world at the levels of subtle matter and energy. Their unconscious, "first" attention interpretation forms a picture of human reality, but the artist makes the unconscious conscious, becoming a co-author of invisible poetic processes taking place in the planetary universe. At the same time, the painter does not invade reality with the scalpel of reason - we see in essence the contemplative art, which is a harmonious interaction with reality. Guided by creative spontaneity, the artist appears to be the creator of the elements of the universe, because his observation activity is in harmony with the world.
The exhibition "HERE AND THERE" in the gallery "CAN BONI" will be held from October 4 (official opening - at 19.00) to November 5, 2019.
Entrance is free.
