The painting is a memory.
Here's what the artist Anatoli Gostev shared about the inspiration for the painting on his website Gostev's Fine Art:
This painting is a memory of my studio, of the search for expressiveness and the beauty of everyday things. At my first exhibition in Germany, I showed dozens of paintings, all of which came from my first studio and were my first attempts to remove literature from painting. After the vernissage, Gisela Schröder (the gallery owner) said, "Tolya, address the audience not to show your paintings, but to express your own thoughts."
Today, I feel a connection between my latest works and those first searches, but today I don't think the same way as I did then. Today, expressiveness for me is not a passion expressed in movement, but in the structure of the painting, where all parts of the painting are equally valuable, its composition and the combination of color surfaces, the place occupied by objects and pauses. Like in musical harmony, where each note is a part of the whole.
A few years ago, Gisela Schröder said to me, "Tolya, you had a corner in your studio where you made coffee, I still remember it... after all these years."- Anatoli Gostev
