Ksenya Istomina Art

Russian, b. 1993
Ksenya Istomina, a born painter. “From my second year,” says Ksenya Istomina, “my mother gave me a new sketchbook every day, I always drew such a sketchbook full and then another empty notebook was ready. In kindergarten I drew whole stories together with my girlfriend that we made up together. Now this girlfriend is my favorite model and you can see her in several of my paintings. At primary school, my parents were advised to let me go to art school. I started doing that at the age of 10 and I graduated from the Imperial Academy of Arts at the age of 27”. Studying at this famous Academy has brought a lot to the now 29-year-old Istomina, she sees not only the lessons but also the cooperation with her fellow students and teachers as special and valuable. An academic study where everything is drawn and painted completely 'from life'. The building itself also has a long history in the art world. Not everything has been restored and partly because of this, that history is clearly visible in a fascinating way. Her fascination for this environment can also be seen in some of the paintings Ksenya Istomina made for her solo exhibition at Galerie Bonnard. Your own style Studying at the academy meant hard work. For six years, the young artist usually painted and drew 7 days a week, 7-12 hours a day. This has resulted in enormous experience, knowledge and mastery of the craft. With her soft, dreamy personality she puts her own character into the work. This own style did not come to her mind. Developing your own style was not easy. During the hours of drawing and painting sessions and the intensive collaboration and work discussions with her fellow students, the hours of copying the old masters in the museums in various styles, she discovered her style and found the subjects that appeal to her. There is not a single style of a particular artist that is preferred by the artist. That she has an enormous knowledge of the history of art is apparent from the series of names she mentions when we ask her this question. Some of the names she mentions are: Johannes Vermeer, Claude Monet, Jules Bastien Lepage, John Everett Millet, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Levitan, John Singer Sargent, George Clausen, Henri Fantin-Latour and Arkhip Kuindzhi. Studying and discussing with others what she likes and would like to show in her work is not over after her academic period. One of her fellow students became her partner and she discusses what she is going to paint with him, they view and judge each other's work and are each other's main critics. Istomina says that this support ensures that they both constantly learn quality and creativity.

No Pasaran - Lone Soldier Symbolizing the Human Desire for Equality and Freedom
By William Blake (b. 1991)
Located in Chicago, IL
Hugh Goffinet stares out from the canvas in the dress of a soldier, without being one. He is a reenactor of an African American volunteer in the Abraham Lincoln Battalion. His inspiration is the Lincolns—the battalion’s volunteers—but they are pictured only symbolically, in his dress. Their inspiration was Lincoln, who many decades earlier helped give meaning to the American Civil War, but who is invisible in the painting except by implication—the pose of Hugh Goffinet—which carefully emulates Lincoln’s pose in the celebrated presidential portrait by George Healy. Entirely hidden, at the deepest layer of history, is the true source of inspiration: the human desire for equality and freedom. To understand, honor, and preserve it requires remembrance, in this case with history animating reenactors who animate art that animates memory. "No Pasaran" - an expression of determination to defend a position against an enemy - channels the spirit of Winslow Homer's war imagery, bringing it into the contemporary world, asking us to reflect upon the decisions forced to be made in wartime, some of which will never leave us. As for the paintings, William uses materials and methods of the Civil War era. The linen on which he paints was in use at that time as well as the tubed oil paints. He is one of the few artists who tacks his canvas to the stretchers using similar tacks that would have been used by Winslow Homer. While he leaves the works unframed for this reason, the artwork could certainly be framed. This piece is unframed. Please contact the gallery for framing options. William Blake No Pasaran oil on linen 48h x 30w in 121.92h x 76.20w cm WIL047 Known for his highly charged depictions of Civil War reenactments, William Blake’s powerful paintings show the recursive bodies of reenactors as they gesture across time. Participating in over 40 reenactment events, Blake currently interprets as the artist-correspondent Winslow Homer at these battle reenactments. He immerses himself in the materiality of his own obsession by constructing period clothes, camping on battlefields, and documenting the reenactment similar to Homer’s documentation of the authentic war. The figures in the paintings reverberate the past with respect and with a desire to educate, humble, and play. With each annual iteration of American Civil War reenactments, the reanimation of the past encourages a review of history and aids in its continuous revision. For his second exhibition with Gallery Victor Armendariz, William Blake presents A Great Battlefield, a collection of new paintings depicting US Marines at the Gettysburg National Military Park. A Great Battlefield, takes its title from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address which poetically looks to the battlefield as a site of rebirth. Following the tradition of nineteenth-century American history painting...

Ramparts - Inspiration Portrait of a Lone Soldier Staring Out at Viewer, Oil
By William Blake (b. 1991)
Located in Chicago, IL
William Blake’s oil painting asks us to perceive the powerful layers of history that shape both art and memory. In Blake’s painting is a man, but what Blake painted is an idea. Hugh Goffinet stares out from the canvas in the dress of a soldier, without being one. He is a reenactor of an African American volunteer in the Abraham Lincoln Battalion. His inspiration is the Lincolns—the battalion’s volunteers—but they are pictured only symbolically, in his dress.
