Alexander Sitnikov
Shostakovitch, 1999
Oil on canvas, collage, 180 x 170 cm

The contrast, which is as old as Adam, between the friable flesh, vulnerable soul and furious Creative power blasting everything that attempts to withstand it from the outside , has gained in this person its utmost expression which is emphasized by so familiar dissonance between a simple human Alert and phobia to lose his Creative abilities, and winning and triumphing indomitable courage which pushes the artist out of the ordinary, where the roar of Authority, the Sarcasm of Philistines, the silence of Fear, the Fear of the Poet, the Love of the Artist, the Tragedy of Love, the Burden of Time, the Harmony of Hope - that is Shostakovitch - the Ingenious Echo of the twentieth Century.
