Provincial Pictures. Paintings and Graphics

State Museum of History of Saint Petersburg represents the exhibition of works by Vladimir Lubarov "Provincial Pictures" (paintings and graphics).

Lubarov wants to descry things which are behind the dilapidated front of provincial life: sometimes touching, sometimes fun and in other times a little bit terrifying. Elegant one-colourness and energy fullness of his way of painting make naive world monumental and take it to another level of epos. Laws of real life are easily destroyed by metaphysics laws, details become symbols. Together with paintings there are also graphical works on display.
