Artists of Turkmenistan organized an exhibition of works timed to the motto of the year 2021 "Turkmenistan - Home of Peace and Trust. The event takes place at the Exhibition Center in Ashgabat. The theme of the motto was disclosed by presenting paintings depicting peaceful and happy life of talented and hardworking people of Turkmenistan.
The exhibition starts with works by Berdysakhat Gurbansahedov. The first of his paintings is called "Grapevine". Its peculiarity is the light priming of the canvas on which it is executed. This allowed the artist to achieve a slightly translucent structure of the canvas and give the illusion of fragility to the autumn leaves and ripeness to the grapes.
Among other paintings of the artist stands out a fascinating triptych "Migrating Birds", where swans preparing to fly away to a distant land, splashing goodbye in the rebellious waters of the Caspian Sea. No less interesting is the work "Iris", also belonging to the brush of the artist. The flower is depicted on a bright red background, and its petals have an interesting shade, creating a sense of fantasy. As a result, viewers began to perceive the iris, so beloved by many artists, in a completely different way.
The painting "Holy Water" by Saparmamed Meredov is also interesting. Executed in monochrome pale color, it contains the image of a woman with jugs walking through the endless desert. According to the artist, the woman represents the dream of an exhausted traveler to quench his thirst.
People's Artist of Turkmenistan Kossek Nurmuradov also presented his works painted in the traditional abstract genre. His paintings "Old World", "Arba", "Haymaking" create a sense of celebration in the time of peace.
In his painting "Winter Landscape," the artist Kutlymurat Toraev evokes memories of the winter season. Although the work itself was created in 2012. It depicts a rural landscape, and authentically conveyed a sense of frosty freshness.
The landscape "Neon colors of summer" by Klavdia Durdyeva looks contrasting in this respect. It is made in a bright Gauguin palette and evokes the longing for summer warmth, bright sunshine and the smells of flowers and herbs.
