Evgeny Kravtsov. "Horse", 2019.

Artist's archive

The cycle "Corrosion" is the result of the five-year work of Evgeny Kravtsov (2018-2023), which is currently the most significant of the artist's works. The objects of the series are not only characters that have undergone destruction, but also objects touched by corrosion. Some of them retained their integrity, others suffered more.

"The "Corrosion" album began with a series of works that can be considered as my reflection on a bygone era," says Evgeny Kravtsov. – "In the process of appearance of new topics and works, something different, more connected with time, has grown, I think. Over time, in the aspect of human, life perception."

"The sophistication of the letter, in which pictorial and graphic techniques are used equally, creating an indivisible unity, fascinates the most. Kravtsov's innovation rests on a solid foundation of the traditional basics of the Russian painting. The topic, presented in the principles of postmodern art, is "ennobled" by the academic school of painting, realistic interpretations, which is the advantage of the cycle as a work of art, in which the old and the new are not antagonists, but unity in their evolutionary development." Art critic Ralia Musina
