From the Archive #3.- “Bakhor” relief

Published by under Uncategorized

“Bakhor” (meaning “spring” in Uzbek language) ceramic sculpture was made in 1977, and installed inside the cafe of  “Yulduz” sewing factory in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

2×5 Meters each (depth 35-40 centimeters), two similar reliefs/sculptures standing next to each other.

This was the first abstract (non-figurative) sculpture in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, which at the time wa part of the Soviet Union.

Banya “Khamom” project

Published by under Uncategorized

Banya “Khamom” (Public bathhouse entrance) in Tashkent. The project was a collaboration with a russian architect Andrey Stanislavovich Kosinski, erected around the year 1979. The relief above the entrance is 90cm in diameter. The monochrome photograph actually depicts a color relief, with red and gold. The relief actually represents the streets of Tashkent, with the buildings originally designed by Kosinski.  Inside the actual building, the facade of which is depicted here, there were a dozen of plates on the walls. The building has been demolished during the current “reconstruction” of the capital of Uzbekistan, so the final fate of the relief is unknown.

This building was the only one, besides the Bogdan Khmelnitsky prospect of buildings designed by Andrei Kosinksi. While he had multiple, very beautiful projects designed for the capital, only these two where approved.

The year is 1968, the works were sold to a local tea house “Choihana” in Tashkent, Uzbekistan in the “Victory” Park. Six large plates were ordered and placed in central room of the tea house, on the wall, that is itself covered with ceramic tiles.

This was the first series of ceramic ornamental plates, with some influences of traditional art of Uzbekistan, that I have made. They were made in my studio. Later on, larger works were made at the studio at home, but some were fired at a ceramics factory.

This work also represents one of the first times that I have collaborated with an architect (Leonid Comissar).

Paintings – A mix of various years

Published by under Paintings

In an effort to create a site that is more organized, I will organize all the images present in the gallery below, including works from early 70’s and 90’s, and some of the more current works into more distinguishable categories. For now, however, here is a collection of works that has not been sorted yet.
