Photographer's Note

During 20th century the art crossed many turbulences and styles around the world, but in Russia it was ever more turbulent.
After the end of communism around 1989, the Russian artists received again the right to express their art freely. I presume some of them could be more attached to the help of government and liked more the official money than the freedom.
This is a canvas is named "The Mourning" and was created by Gelly Korzhev (1997-99).
It was a kind of artwork not permitted during communism with religious theme. Anyway this artwork isn't a traditional religious art. Pay attention in dead Jesus, He is grey and even older than His mother. Mary is watching Her Son in a curious way, as if His death was funny. There were other canvas of this same artist. I would like to post more, they are so interesting and well done. This art show us as the religious aspect of Russian society came back soon after the communism, but the atheist feeling, learned during decades, is present in some way. In this canvas you can see this isn't a real religious art, there is a kind of irony..

Durante o sculo 20 a arte mundial passou por muitos estilos e turbulncias, mas na Rssia isso foi ainda maior.
Depois da queda do comunismo, por volta de 1989, os artistas russos tiveram de volta o direito a liberdade de expresso, mas acho que alguns artistas preferiam ter o dinheiro do governo e nem se importavam tanto assim com essa tal liberdade.
Essa uma tela chamada "O Luto", pintada entre 1997-99 por Gelly Korzhev.
Esse um tema que no era permitido durante o comunismo, mas vejam que no um tipo comum de arte religiosa. Jesus morto cinza e to velho como a me, que est o admirando com um olhar curioso, como se achasse graa na sua morte. H nessa galeria muitas outras obras desse artista, todas so fabulosas e uma pena que no possa mostrar tudo aqui.
Vemos nessa tela como a religiosidade russa aflorou depressa depois do fim do comunismo, mas mesmo assim sentimos que h um fio de atesmo, aprendido durante dcadas, est ainda presente, apesar de tudo. Reparem que no uma tela religiosa comum, h uma espcie de ironia.
