Steppe Stories Will Be Told at Moscow Museum of Oriental Arts
June 23, 2017 07:49


The exhibition Steppe Stories. Continuation ... will be running in the Museum of Oriental Arts from June 30 to July 23, 2017.
Khankhalaev Gallery is going to present paintings, graphic art and sculptures by three famous Buryat artists: Bato Dashitsyrenov, Balginim Dorgiev and Zhamso Radnayev. For each of them, it will be the first major museum exhibition in Moscow.
Buryatia takes a prominent place on the modern Russian art map: lots of masters, known and recognized in this country and all over the world, come from here. Buryat artists organically combine classical Soviet school with deeply rooted folk traditions, boldly infusing this mix with modern forms and meanings.
National culture, the Buryat epic, the traditional culture of the peoples of Central Asia, its images and mythology, the cult of Mother Earth, and nomadism – these topics have been unfolded and reflected upon by a number  of Buryat artists since the middle of the 20th century. Images of warriors and fighters, musicians and shamans make up a visual series typical for modern Buryat painting and sculpture. Nevertheless, the individual features of every artist are recognizable in this modern epic gallery.
The art of Balginim Dorgiev immerses the viewer into mythological space and time. In the modern world, this form of perception, while preserving its national color and loyalty to traditional themes, tends to shift to the language of universal concepts. The peculiarity of Balginim Dorgiev's painting is highlighted with color: the artist does not only express his feelings through color, but breaks through to the roots of his own worldview.
The palette of Zhamso Radnaev is characterized with muted colors in the green-blue-yellow tonality typical for the painter. Among his plot priorities is the development of the children's theme, with kind folk humor. The style of Zhamso Radnaev is akin to modern primitivism. The author intentionally leaves his characters free from heroization. The motives of his works stand out in vivid national coloring and are associated with the nomadic people’s experience of nature. At the same time they are universal. For all their connection with mythology and fairytale folklore, even some literary works, his works are never illustrative. The man’s direct connection with the earthly and heavenly has been decisive for Buryat culture since ancient times and is one of the major themes in creativity of Zhamso Radnaev.
The beyond-event nature of the creativity of these modern Buryat artists fills landscapes, portraits, and sketches of simple scenes and traditional sport contests with a different, deeper meaning, bringing them far beyond the domestic genre. Almost every work makes a person think about the role of tradition in the modern world, and what the national phenomenon in art is about.
