Césan’s work is a balance between form and freedom, as well as the conventional and eccentric. Bold creations emerge from her canvas as she re-imagines, re-works, and remembers symbols and iconography. While Césan’s subjects are simple and familiar, her expression is original, bold, rhythmic, spiritual and sculptural. Césan opens a creative door behind an idea, and carefully allows it to explode onto the canvas.”My practice is as much about meditation as it is about painting. The enduring relevance of the marriage of art and spirit has been impressed upon me throughout my life, from visits to sacred sites around the world to a long immersion in scholarship on the subject. I’ve been using painting for nearly 20 years principally as a methodology for my own research on this relationship.
My work is a recording of a significant world filled with insignificant faces. What makes it meaningful is the strange acceptance of living by these faceless people who defy logic.
I work on human characterization, I am keenly interested in the process of changes in the features as life proceeds. I pursue light. I experiment with pigment and the various ways it can impact the human mind; how the expressions of colors and expressions of emotions combined can trigger human sensibilities.
My work offers an insight to a stark reality which is often overlooked, or ignored. I strive in my work to bring out discarded individuality….
I am a seeker , an observer , expressions of all kinds fascinate me….smiles , madness, sorrow, happiness, anger. When I paint, I am not thinking, the painting itself leads me.
Mikhail Aldashin was born in 1958 in the town of Tuapse, Krasnodar Krai. In 1987 he graduated from VGIK (The Russian State University of Cinematography) as a life-action film art director. In 1989 he finished scriptwriting and film making course, where he studied under supervision of Yuriy Norshtein, Eduard Nazarov and Andrey Khrzhanovsky.
Mikhail Aldashin spent 3 weeks as the resident artist at The Cube Gallery, during which time he painted 70 paintings.
Mikhail Aldashin paints in the style popularly called «Naïve art». Giorgio dө Chirico said it best: «To beсome truly immortаl, a work of art muѕt escape all hυman limits…But once theѕe barriers аre broken, іt will enter the realms of childһood visions and dreams.» The keyword here is childhood. Naïve art takes the ordinary and adds enchantment. It turns the reality of adulthood into the weightless joys of youth. Simply put, naïve art turns reality into something else, something better. Naïve art often creates the illusion that objects are floating or positioned without anything solid anchoring them in place.
Precision of detail — Naïve artists often pay very close attention to the soft borders, intense backgrounds, and fine lines of their figures and objects.
