Mysterious Exhibition beyond Praise
On April 26, Museum of Art presented over 100 works of Vladimer Kandelaki in painting and graphic art.
The painter’s works are multifaceted, which is confirmed by his diverse creativity. His artworks represent the synthesis of plastics and dynamics, realism and imagination. Thanks to his original and peculiar style, Vladimer Kandelaki used to astonish the public. Since 1990, his many expositions have taken place in Tbilisi, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Atlanta – this is an incomplete list of towns, where his
personal exhibitions were held. Within the years, the painter’s virtuoso technique becomes more and more sophisticated, while he is carrying on new experiments.
Vladimer Kandelaki, famous Georgian painter, Honorary Professor of Tbilisi Academy of Arts, Honored artist and holder of the Order of Honor, has an internationally recognized reputation. His works are original as well as national. As of 1990s, he has been working in the United States; Lela Tsitsuashvili, curator of the exhibition thanked him for organizing the transfer of his works from there to Georgia.
His colleagues and friends view Vladimer Kandelaki as a surprisingly industrious painter. “Laborare est orare, as the old Latins would say”, said Igor Chkheidze, his friend, engineer and philosopher, “This is the way Vladimer has chosen. He works from 7 am till late night. I believe that without a mystery that should be hidden in it, there is no piece of great work. In this respect, Vova’s works are extremely affluent. I remember the story when my friends and I were meeting the New Year together and he came running to my house, as it was difficult to get any means of transportation in those hard times. Why did he have to run? Because he could not stop working till the very last moment.”
Ia Bagration-Mukhraneli, experienced journalist, commented: “I haven’t seen such interesting and extremely Georgian exhibition for long time. He is the pupil of great Georgian maestro Sergo Kobuladze. Vladimer is constantly striving for something; for instance, he fights against poverty and other so-called ‘demons’. He has painted a jug town. It symbolizes a Georgian man’s character who might be almost hungry but he will do his best to treat his guests.”
The series of peacocks is something beyond praise. One of them is wrapped up in a net – beautiful like a bride , resembling captivated Georgia – what a pain, what a strong feeling of being a Georgian even when you live abroad. These works belong to different decades, starting from 1960s and ending today.
Vladimer Kandelaki is a great collector as well. The exhibition fills three halls and comprises collages, paintings and pieces from his collection. The exposition closes on May 10.
