The international exhibition «Oasis of the Soul: New Sincerity» opened at Masterpiece Fine Art gallery, Dubai on the 8th of September 2022
The philosophy of new sincerity has influenced every aspect of modern life. It empowers the new format of creativity, breaking away from cynicism and postmodern irony. This concept reveals the message of the «Oasis of the Soul: New Sincerity» exhibition that opens at Masterpiece Fine Art gallery on the 8th of September. It brings together the artworks of outstanding international artists who convey their unique perceptions of life through the mediums of painting and photography.
The exclusive preview of the event was held at Celebrity and Michelin Star Chef Daniel Boulud’s restaurant, Brasserie Boulud, located in Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk where the guests enjoyed art both on the plate and on the canvases of distinct talents in the international art scene. Chef De Cuisine Nicolas Lemoyne presented a curated menu followed by a private tour of the gallery highlighting the most prominent artworks of the show.
The show features the most famous art pieces Noj Barker, Alena Vavilina, Andrey Voskanyan (HOUDRUK), Tatyana Faydysh, Joe Machine, Sergey Markofken, Waleed Al Taleb, and Katya Warm.
The organizers of the exhibition invite the viewer to pay attention to the eternal values of humanity, to fill the void that has been formed by returning to the «principles of unambiguity», to search for answers and true meanings. The emphasis on sincerity and authenticity that has arisen made it un-ironically cool to care about spirituality, family, neighbors, the environment, and the country.
«The art project «Oasis of the Soul» is the first case of our agency that combines both art and cuisine. Moreover, we are pleased to present two artists (HOUDRUK and T. Faydysh) that show their individual visions of modern and contemporary art's époque.
Our mission is to organize your first acquaintance with the most significant artists from Eastern Europe and CIS. We are really interested in both the Emirati and international communities. So we would thoroughly select and open new great names to the public. We truly believe that Dubai is a great platform for implementing our most ambitious ideas. We feel the interest of the Emirates and international community and that's why we will continue to promote the brightest figures and present new names to the art world! » - Maria Kuznetsova, CEO of Orange PR Agency, one of the curators of the event.
One of the key figures was presented Andrey Voskanyan (HOUDRUK) - an Armenian artist with an honorable international background. Andrey was born in Yerevan and has explored complex color combinations of the modernist style, wild expressionism, and lush academic realism throughout his art career. At the age of 41, Andrey Voskanyan (HOUDRUK) is a Laureate of international exhibitions, including Florence Biennale exhibitions (Gold Medal of Lorenzo Medici) and New York Expo 2007 (New York, USA), where he also had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMMA) in 2011 (New York), and Florence Biennale exhibitions (Gold Medal of Lorenzo Medici).
«The calligraphic features of Voskanyan's fine art connect with Arabic culture: the movement of lines of incredible precision, strength, and delicacy that is almost impossible in the modern world. In his manner of art the line has a special life of its own - like a line creating a letter.» - Art critic Elizaveta Plavinskaya, Member of the International Union of Art Critics AICA.
