Paris Montmartre 2018

   Andrei Krioutchenko d'origine russe né à Tachkent, après une formation à la prestigieuse École de Saint-Pétersbourg, il continue ses travaux à Paris. Cette ville le fascine et le marque tant qu'elle devient son thème de prédilection et sa source d'inspiration privilégiée.
Ses monuments, ses rues, ses atmosphères, ses scènes de vie quotidienne ...sont une palette emplie de poésie qu'il sait à merveille transposer dans ses ouvres.
   Héritier des maîtres flamands et de l'École italienne, il conjugue avec magie les jeux d'ombres et de lumières en nous dévoiler, par un subtile touché, les contours enchanteurs d'une ville qui sait encore se parer de charmes réservés à ses seuls véritables amoureux.
Un Paris nostalgique, flamboyant, intemporel, habillé de lu­mière, maître de ses pierres, gardien jaloux de ses am­biances... nous est ainsi dévoilé par un artiste pas avare de ses émotions, généreux dans sa création.
   Tout cela est, sans maniérisme en toute simplicité, présent dans les oeuvres d'Andrei Krioutchenko

That day in the City of Light

Andrei Krioutchenko

  Graduated with Honours from the prestigious Academy of Fine Art in St. Petersburg in 1979. The captivating quality and beauty of his paintings reflect Andrei as a master of depicting intricate transformation of light, delicacy, and fine detail of the many facets of life in Paris.
   During the decade following his graduation Andrei's work encompassed a variety of areas involving his skills in architecture, as a designer, and as an artist.
Since 1991 he has resided in France . And from then on he has had only one occupation – Artist. He has become a visual poet, depicting the many facets of Paris in his diverse works of art... defining and redefining, the look, and the textures, and the heart of the French world.

   His exhibitions have taken place in diverse places around the globe, including Moscow , Paris , San Francisco , St. Petersburg ,London and New-York . His paintings are currently sold in galleries in France , and in the USA . You can find his works at the Galerie Hay Cie and the Galerie Rosha in Paris , and the “The Weatherburn Gallery”, Naples Florida.

   Andrei's paintings exemplify a unique interpretation of a moment, balanced in arrangement, and subtle transformations of light.
   Blending, in the spirit of old masters paintings, Krioutchenko commands the brush in a game of light and shade. His works are full of life and air. The delicacy and detail of his masterful technique translates reality without any limitations. As a master of intricate transformations of light, Andrei's work holds the viewer captive with the invisible magnetism of true artistry.

Master of Light and Shadow

The colors black and white, extreme ends of the color spectrum have been a part of multiple cultures around the world for centuries.  Usually they represent good and evil.  But in the world of art, black and white are colors most often used to create something quite different: bold contrast between light and dark or an effect known as chiaroscuro; a complex painting technique that suggests three-dimensional volume by the use of highlights and shadow.
    The technique began to appear in 15th century paintings in Italy and Flanders.  But true chiaroscuro was developed during the 16th century when dark subjects lit by a shaft of light from a single often unseen source began to appear as a compositional device, most notably in works by Caravaggio.
    Today, the technique remains an important element of great art and one of its masters is Andrei Krioutchenko.      Born in the Soviet Union but now living in Paris, Andrei is a gold-medal winning master of chiaroscuro who will be in The Gallery to introduce his latest collection Paris – City of Lights.
    And what a great collection it is.  In all his works his mastery of the technique is very clearly demonstrated by his skilled knowledge of perspective, the physical effect of light on surfaces, and the definition of objects without use of a contouring line but only by the contrast between the color of an object and its background.
    Chiaroscuro can also represent good and evil.  In the version of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, “Chiaroscuro” is the title of the chapter. Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

 Quotes about Paris



   An artist has no home in Europe except in Paris. -Friedrich Nietzsche

    You know, I sometimes think, how is anyone ever gonna come up with a book, or a painting, or a symphony, or a sculpture that can compete with a great city. You can’t. Because you look around and every street, every boulevard, is its own special art form and when you think that in the cold, violent, meaningless universe that Paris exists, these lights. I mean come on, there’s nothing happening on Jupiter or Neptune, but from way out in space you can see these lights, the cafés, people drinking and singing. For all we know, Paris is the hottest spot in the universe. -Owen Wilson as Gil in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris

    In Paris, everybody wants to be an actor; nobody is content to be a spectator. -Jean Cocteau


    A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life. -Thomas Jefferson


    To know Paris is to know a great deal. -Henry Miller

    What an immense impression Paris made upon me. It is the most extraordinary place in the world! -Charles Dickens


    Paris is a place in which we can forget ourselves, reinvent, expunge the dead weight of our past. -Michael Simkins


    It is perfectly possible to be enamoured of Paris while remaining totally indifferent or even hostile to the French. -James Baldwin

    Paris is the city in which one loves to live. Sometimes I think this is because it is the only city in the world where you can step out of a railway station—the Gare D’Orsay—and see, simultaneously, the chief enchantments: the Seine with its bridges and bookstalls, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Tuileries Gardens, the Place de la Concorde, the beginning of the Champs Elysees—nearly everything except the Luxembourg Gardens and the Palais Royal. But what other city offers as much as you leave a train? -Margaret Anderson

    When spring comes to Paris the humblest mortal alive must feel that he dwells in paradise. -Henry Miller


    A final reminder. Whenever you are in Paris at twilight in the early summer, return to the Seine and watch the evening sky close slowly on a last strand of daylight fading quietly, like a sigh. -Kate Simon


    That Paris exists and anyone could choose to live anywhere else in the world will always be a mystery to me. -Marion Cotillard as Adriana in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris

    To err is human. To loaf is Parisian. -Victor Hugo

    If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast. -Ernest Hemingway

    The art galleries of Paris contain the finest collection of frames I ever saw.-Humphry Davy

 

Lise: Paris has ways of making people forget. Jerry: Paris? No, not this city. It’s too real and too beautiful. It never lets you forget anything. It reaches in and opens you wide, and you stay that way. -Leslie Caron as Lise and Gene Kelly as Jerry Mulligan in An American In Paris

    Paris is always a good idea. -Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina Fairchild in Sabrina


 

 

Paris

Paris n’a de beauté qu’en son histoire,
Mais cette histoire est belle tellement !
La Seine est encaissée absurdement,
Mais son vert clair à lui seul vaut la gloire.

Paris n’a de gaîté que son bagout,
Mais ce bagout, encor qu’assez immonde,
Il fait le tour des langages du monde,
Salant un peu ce trop fade ragoût.

Paris n’a de sagesse que le sombre
Flux de son peuple et de ses factions,
Alors qu’il fait des révolutions
Avec l’Ordre embusqué dans la pénombre.

Paris n’a que sa Fille de charmant
Laquelle n’est au prix de l’Exotique
Que torts gentils et vice peu pratique
Et ce quasi désintéressement.

Paris n’a de bonté que sa légère
Ivresse de désir et de plaisir,
Sans rien de trop que le vague désir
De voir son plaisir égayer son frère.

Paris n’a rien de triste et de cruel
Que le poëte annuel ou chronique,
Crevant d’ennui sous l’oeil d’une clinique
Non loin du vieil ouvrier fraternel.

Vive Paris quand même et son histoire
Et son bagout et sa Fille, naïf
Produit d’un art pervers et primitif,
Et meure son poëte expiatoire !

Paul Verlaine
