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.
