The Opuls pass — a new geografical story in the Suvorov museum.
About the artist and his exhibition «The pass»
A St. Petersburg artist, a bachelor of contemporary art, a member of the Artists' Union and a helicopter pilot who got through the Afghan war, Sergei Opules opens a solo exhibition of paintings in the first memorial museum of Russia - the Alexander Suvorov museum.
The exhibition of paintings entitled "The pass" opens on August 17, 2017 at 17.00 in the exhibition hall of the Suvorov museum in St. Petersburg, Kirochnaya st. 51.
The exhibition is arranged to coincide with the 55th anniversary of the artist and the 25th anniversary of his conscious creative activity.
The fact that for more than half of his life Sergei Opuls was torn painfully between the love for the sky and the desire to fly on the one hand and the natural gift of painting on the other is reflected in his whole creative and life biography.
The native of Tashkent, Sergei Opuls comes from the Pavlovs noblemen family, which has been long serving the Fatherland; therefore, after graduating from the Tashkent Art College of P.P. Benkov in 1982, at his own request he went directly to the helicopter school in Samarkand. After the school he was sent to the helicopter regiment of Soviet troops operating in Afghanistan. On the own recognition of Sergei Opuls, who painted under his real surname Pavlov (Opuls is the surname of the great-grandmother of the artist - Latvian German), it was the harsh mountain beauty of Afghanistan combined with the constant aggravated sensation of life in the war, which made him an artist from a helicopter pilot.
The title "The pass" for the anniversary exhibition of a passionate lover of mountains and sky was not chosen accidentally. By the images of war and peace in the midst of the mountain passes and gorges of the Hindu Kush, Sergei Opuls encourages the viewer to generalize and comprehend his own life. Every person experiences at least once, and often more than once, the point at which a new one awaits him. And the price of overcoming this pass is usually very high.
So the passionate lover of mountain circuses and the open sky, a fifteen-year-old graduate of a special military school under the Turkestan Military District, Sergei Pavlov climbed the mountains around his native Tashkent to meet the sunrise, and having returned alive from the war, was able to overcome the Afghan syndrome and become a true artist whose works are kept in state museums and private collections all around the world.
A special place at the exhibition, where thirty pictures of the «Hindukush» series are exhibited repeatedly, is occupied by a canvas written about ten years ago - "The Devil's Bridge in the Alps". It depicts a part of the bridge, usually hidden in photographs, through a mountain canyon in Switzerland, along which A.V. Suvorov's troops passed in battle in 1799.
The exhibition is organized with the support of the "Agency of Museum Communications" and NP "Silver Ring".
Opening day: August 17 from 17:00 to 20:00, Kirochnaya st. 51, the exhibition hall of the museum.

The exhibition is open from August 17 to September 18 (4 weeks), Tuesday and Thursday - Sunday - 11.00-17.00, Wednesday - 13.00-21.00, except Monday - the day off.

20.06.2017: The latest new of Sergey Opuls' work and life are in Russian. The translating is in work.
01.03.2013: Solo Exhibition “The Islands of Faith”. The paintings of the Orthodox Series. Opening on 13.03.13 at 17.00 Hotel «Marshal», Shpalernaya St., 41
We would like to introduce a very outstanding artist Sergey Opuls.
The artist Sergey Opuls, born in Tashkent, lives in St. Petersburg since almost 25 years ago. The monasteries of the Konevets and Valaam islands and orthodox churches of Russia have become a big part of his inspiring art.
The confessor of the artist, father Jacob (Ambartsumov) says: "The art by Sergey Opuls revives the spiritual experience we had on the holy island of Konevets. His paintings are vivid, the contemplation of such paintings is of great value, that is the recovery of the soul from the massive nervousness of a big modern city. "
This is how prof. Dmitry Arapov (PhD in history, professor at Moscow University) describes the unique aspect of the works of Opuls:
"In his art we can see two "red lines".
The former one was born in Central Asia. The colorfulness and intensity of Tashkent and Samarkand, the yellow of the mountains and deserts of Afghanistan are and, in my opinion, will always be a big part of his artistic existence.
The latter "red line" is the Russian North, with its rough dimness of dark grayish fields and woods, whiteness of monasteries and churches.
The paintings of Sergey Opuls lie close to my heart of an East historian living in northern Eurasia.
I hold equally dear both Samarkand and Suzdal, Bukhara and Solovki - everything that became, one way or another, the fate of many Russian people in the last 150 years of Russian history. "
You will be convinced yourself that the native of the South perceives Northern Palmyra differently in comparison with the residents of St. Petersburg.
Harmony in riot of coloures, the lively sun, glitter of a smooth lake surface, the greenery of rushes, the alluring summer and enigmatic winter sky are saved for us by the master of brush Sergey Opuls. The images of this artist have everything, that helps and calls us to live: the inner light, the magical colors, unusual composition variations, the internal force.
Mastery of the painter is proved by time and is verified by numerous exhibitions, auctions and art councils in museums where are located his images.
In his biography are more than 50 collective and personal exhibitions in St. Petersburg and Moscow, and solo exhibitions in Hamburg, Temendorf (Germany), winning competitions in Russia and abroad, participation in open-airs and arts sponsorship, urban and corporate events.
The images of Opuls were sold at the most respectable auction house in Paris “Drouot”, at auctions in Munich and Dusseldorf in Germany and in the USA.
The most important public and private collections, which stores the paintings of Opuls:
Collection of the governor of the Holy Trinity Alexander Nevsky Lavra, Bishop Nazari (St. Petersburg), Archimandrite Isidore Collection - Head of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem, Collection of culture counselor of Norway consulate Sigrid Romundset, Collection of British Consul John Guy, Russian-German meeting center in St. Petersburg, Holy Cross Cathedral (Cossack) (St. Petersburg), Konevsky monastery, Leningrad region.
With help of our consultant you will be able to choose your own Islands of Faith in the canvas which you will value and be proud of.

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkened ways
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon,
Trees old, and young, sprouting a shady boon
For simple sheep; and such are daffodils
With the green world they live in; and clear rills
That for themselves a cooling covert make
'Gainst the hot season; the mid-forest brake,
Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
And such too is the grandeur of the dooms
We have imagined for the mighty dead;
All lovely tales that we have heard or read:
An endless fountain of immortal drink,
Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink. (John Keats)
