Oleg Kudryashov 'Memories of Moscow' at Robert Brown Gallery

March 18, 2014

Join Robert Brown Gallery for the opening reception of the Oleg Kudryashov Memories of Moscow: Reliefs, constructions, and compositions, 1976-1995 exhibition on Friday, March 22 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.

In his work, Kudryashov often combines multiple zinc plates to transform two-dimensional prints into reliefs and three-dimensional constructions. He applies gouache and watercolor to paper before applying his velvety drypoint compositions. The works in this exhibition, covering the period 1977 - 1995, are small and large in scale, flat and three-dimensional. There are references to Russian icons, industrial landscapes and the artist's memories of Moscow from his studio in London where he lived from 1974 - 1997.

The exhibition will be on display from Friday March 22 through Saturday, May 10. Click here for more details about the artist and the exhibition or call 202.338.0353.
