|The Panagea of space|
(2015, hardboard, oil, 30 x 40 см)
|"This is a program painting for solo exhibition in 2015 called “The panagea of space”. “Panagea” is author's neologism, the mixing of two important for Sergey Opuls words, the significant notions of his life.|
One component - the word “perigee” (“perigey” in Russian) means the closest point from the moon's orbit to the Earth, it bears the impress of the mysterious inner life of the author, according to which the “Perfect man is lunar, cultural and calm...”. Another component - “Panagia” - means the image of the Virgin Mary, which Christians wear on the chest, hidden from prying eyes.
So in this new word, as in the picture, Sergey Opuls impresses his deep perception of space-time, the gist of which becomes visible, like through a powerful telescope on the top of Pamirs, in the author's paintings.
Many art critics and journalists write about the wonderful energy of paintings, when a seemingly ordinary landscape, ordinary temple, the usual road or lake turn into a portal to another dimension, actively interacting with the viewer.
Sergey Opuls is known for his unique color perception and reflection of the amazing beauty of every corner in the Earth, which he painted.
In the words of art historian Ruslan Bakhtiyarov: “A color can fill the sky, clouds and all the surrounding area with an intense burning or with a smooth dim lightning, like a manifestation of spirituality in the nature and in the life of every individual, connected with it by countless invisible but strong threads”.
Program conceptual works in the art of Sergei Opuls are rare exception, as the author rightly believes that we find the timeless beauty in any of his landscape and formulate the actual concept by ourselves.
Personal exhibition of the Union of Artists of Russia member, Bachelor of Modern Art, the winner of many competitions and artistic director of the international plein air - Sergey Markovich Opuls - was in the “Art Hall” exhibition hall (the “Hermitage-Vyborg” branch) until the end of November 2015.

On Valaam any pilgrim submits to obedience, it is as a custom. <…> walks and observations here aren’t into account; but however I <…> managed to bypass in one night all island and to imprint forever in my memory a marvelous picture which wild rocks, dark natural boundaries and silent heritages of Russian Athos represent at a pale twilight of summer northern night.
