PDNB Gallery is proud to present the first solo exhibition for Russian artist, Vadim Gushchin
(b. Novosibirsk, 1963) in the gallery. This show kicks off our Fall Season 2019.
In the artist’s simple studio, a room in his Moscow home that doubles as a dining room and guestroom, Vadim photographs still lives of common, every day objects. The objects include food, books, ephemera, buttons, and various kitchen tools.
Kazimir Malevich (b. Kiev, 1878 – 1935) and the Suprematism movement is rooted in Vadim’s minimalist compositions. Malevich’s art and philosophy has had a stronghold on the art world since its small movement began in the Soviet Union in the 1920’s. In brief, Malevich invented the term, Suprematism, since his belief that the purity of art was through color and shape, transcending the image.
