Transcript of Sergey Smirnov, Contemporary Russian Painter2

  2. 2. Born in 1953, artist Sergey Smirnov grew up in an area of Russia bordering the Pacific Ocean known as the Kamchatka Peninsula. His father was an army officer who moved his family from base to base throughout Russia. In his late teen years, Smirnov and his family settled in Moscow, where he went to work for the Ministry of Agriculture. In 1979, Sergey Smirnov began to take classes at the Moscow City Art College. He graduated from the art college in 1983. His remarkable skill in church and cathedral renovation, led to a prestigious position as a restorer of aging and antique church icons and frescoes. He also served as chief editor for the Advertising and Image Creation Corporation of the Russian government's International Trade Corporation. But in 1994 this spirit moved him to devote himself entirely to painting. Sergey Smirnov's subjects look out from the picture plane with serene and liquid eyes. Their features are delicate, pale, and fine. They seem pensive, or perhaps they simply remain aloof from the comings and goings of the world around them. In every case, their eyes dominate the canvas of their face. If, indeed, the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the souls Smirnov reveals are deep and profound, and in their simplicity, reminiscent of the haunting and beautiful images found in old Russian church iconography. There is something of the saints in Smirnov's art, something of the world and its joys and sorrows is in his eloquent and mute figures.
