Secret Symmetry of Existence

C.ART Gallery invites you to visit the exhibition of works by Ivan Novozhenov "Secret Symmetry of Existence". On display there are paintings, graphic works and other. The law of symmetry which is in the compulsory presence of asymmetry, is understandable better when you see examples to it, when you find the confirmation to the fact that every law has its own exceptions. Artistic sphere has such exceptions more often than others have. They, moreover, become normal things if you deal with such artists as Novozhenov
