Still Life With A Brass Tin, 2020
Oil paint on fine gesso board
Original Painting, 60 x 60 x 1 cm
Faces upon faces, happy, sad, ponderous and excited, portraits in endless movement tell their story and they entice you gracefully into their reality. Valery Koroshilov's figurative art captures an instant, this magic moment in time that narrates simultaneously beyond the obvious, all background feelings and hidden emotions.
Real-life situations of calmness, the laughter of happy times, the carefree children playing by the seaside, the innocence of youth, but most strongly the tendency to observe and imprint memory of past events. His realistic approach derives from his deep intuition and skill to reflect the true essence of characters and objects. Oil linen is his preferred canvas of choice to allow the utmost natural result in his works.This artist is a great explorer of the inner world, who intends to unveil the curtains of real-life settings and stir a dreamlike sense of longing, expectation and desire. A glimpse through a character, an action or a place seems to be enough to reveal the beginning, the end and the conclusion of everything. However, all his masterpieces are a capricious attitude to matter, leaving a nostalgic "what if?" behind.
