  • Catalogue Essay

    Anatoliy Kryvolap is one of the members of a “Pictorial Reserve” art group, which in the early 1990s became concerned with liberation of an artwork’s surface from any indications of real life as its main objective. Kryvolap continued to explore the means of colour and its effect on our perception; he decomposes painting into colors and puts it back together, like a construction set. He prefers horizontal composition and explosive manner of painting.
    His vivid and sappy, captivating with saturation landscapes set an example of so-called “new Ukrainian landscape art”, based on a contemporary perception of signs and symbols and preservation of a remaining spirit of traditional landscape art.
