Trilogy II, Vitaly Didenko (Turkmenistan) – Exquisite Art
Turkmen artist Vitaly Didenko’s “Trilogy II” is a continuation of the theme of the 1917 Revolution in Russia. The painting’s predominantly white and red colours represent banners and snow, reminding us of the cold autumn during the dying Empire. The broad and sweeping strokes of the paint evoke the rigidity and even cruelty of that memorable time. The canvas also portrays the role of nature during this period of history, with snow-white strokes diluting the black-and-red palette. In the centre of the canvas, white predominates, and red frames the space, creating an abstract vision of a St. Petersburg street during the period of the seizure of power by the working class. The classical abstract expressionism style of the painting perfectly suits the revolutionary theme. “Trilogy II” vividly conveys the atmosphere and the sad symphony of October 1917. The painting was created for the Revolution’s centenary and symbolized the strong memory of the generations that followed.
