November 23 in the gallery сцена/szena opened the exhibition "Oversize" of the young Russian
artist Daria Gitmanovich (1992). Daria graduated from the Royal Academy Arts in London by painting class. At the exhibition in the gallery сцена/szena was presented a series of pictorial portraits united by a single color palette and a similar compositional solution.
For Daria, the starting point in the creation of pictorial portraits becomes direct mirroring of the surrounding world, the world of pop culture and social networks. Instagrams, fashion blogs, magazines KALEIDOSCOPE, Dazed, 032C form virtual environment from which the aesthetics of portraits of Daria Gitmanovich is formed. For most of the history of culture, the portrait genre has been the lot of men artists. Ceremonial portraits, or portraits of the Vuarest tradition became original memory cards for posterity and history. Of coursein the modern world, a portrait is not burdened with all the attributes of “documents of the era”, rather as a work of art in the interior.
