Mar 27, 2019 6:30pm - 8:30pm talk/event
Denis Patrakeev was born in 1987 in St. Petersburg. He attended the Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia, Faculty of Fine Arts, from 2002-2009. He has been a Member of the Professional Union of Artists since 2008.
In his art Denis reflects on the concepts of time and eternity, the imagery found in nature and the knowledge of God. Classical techniques are intertwined with elemental materials such as water, salt, earth and fire. For Denis, the spiritual sphere, minimalistic language, and harmony are of key interest.
His work is inspired by the study of nature, the connection of physical and spiritual processes and the poetry of material and form. He writes: "Is this world still life or portrait? How could art expand to faith, to find, to reveal the visible graphically expressed truth? Creativity is seen as a phenomenon brought to life by the desire to find the very essence, the cause of life itself.”
The 'Russia Contemporary' lecture series focuses on inviting contemporary artists from Russia to talk about their work at the Saatchi Gallery. The artists have been selected by Dr. Dimitri Ozerkov, Head of Contemporary Art at the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, and reflect the breadth and diversity of contemporary art from Russia, including both established and emerging artists.
Contributing artists will each present a rich discussion centred on their practice, and attendees will have an opportunity to both listen to and meet the artists. The series will highlight what it means to be an independent artist in Russia today and will be followed by a drinks reception, giving guests the opportunity to mingle and speak to each artist individually.
