Collection of figures " Harmonica Macrocosmica " includes some
portraits by ink and pencil, and also two copies of Durers engravings
" the Knight, Death and Devil " and "Melancolia". The last one
is a version of a colour copy. The collection contains the illustrations
produced in 1987-1999 for the books and periodics. The exposition
is accompanied by an article of Å.V.Golovin " the Ship on a
chain ". Figures on silk " Harmonica Macrocosmica "; and "Saut-as-Sarmad"
are one of the main semantic axes in the narration. But the
purpose is not the demonstrating of a plot or genre composition
of operations. And in the greater degree of an arsenal of representational
receptions, with which the ink and colour ink figure has.
THE SHIP ON THE CHAIN
(About the Dmitry Vorontsov's drawing)
This exclamation, so sonorous and positive, suits best to the
characteristic of the object, offered to contemplation, - be
it a landscape, beautiful (or ugly) lady, or graphic work. To
say the truth, in a spectrum of this "oh", irony or ridicule
can always flash. But anyway, "oh" will be the best mark for
all in general. So called chemically pure "oh".
Whether the last idea concerns Dmitry
Vorontsov's creativity? It is difficult to answer, not being
the art critic, who can spot at once all "what" and "who". What
does the early drawing mean, who has affected the author and
which art school Vorontsov enlist to. But artefacts are made
not only for art critics. Beholding the quadrate entered in
other quadrate, decorated by vignettes, sites, harnesses, filled
by four-lobes flowers or symbols, it is difficult to think about
the art direction - most likely one can imagine something ornamental,
eastern, esoteric. It is possible to say something more, but
it is difficult to make comments by one signed system for another.
Of cause, there are painting and drawing of a direct action
- subject fragment, which is accessible to the "description".
For example, Walter Patter talently "has told" Botichelli's
"Spring", Arvin Panofsky "has decoded" Durer's "Melancholia".
Of cause, there are absolutely not the pictures of the "direct
action". But, for example, "Morning of streltsy' execution",
"Major's engagement"... The essence of these pictures is the
concrete "direct action".
