Alexander Dedushev

Alexander’s work is incredibly meditative; the images seem to be snatched from nirvana. Abstractions are like separate planets, each of which has its own color of the sky, its history and its sun around which it spins.

 

Paintings are never drawn from nature; they are the expression of the artist’s inner world, his thoughts, feelings and emotions, his dreams and fantasies.

 

The hard work of creating a background made of papier-mâché, and the multi-layered coating give the image volume, corporeality, and a physical density; it looks as if the images can come to life and find themselves in reality.

 

Sculptures of Alexander Dedushev are like frozen passages from fantasies about subtle, sensual, and loving souls living in the best of people. They peer into the sky, fly, turn into proud and brave birds; there is nothing impossible for the master’s creations. It took Alexander several years to develop the technology for creating this unique material for the sculpture.

 

Born in Moscow in 1966, he studied in the art-studio of Yuriy Langleiben in 1978-1981. Afterwards, in 1985, Alexander graduated from the Moscow Academic Art School. In 1991 was admitted into the Moscow Union of Artist. Alexander lives and works in Moscow.

 

Alexander Dedushev has had 17 personal exhibitions and participated in over 70 group exhibitions in Europe, Russia and other countries. His works were displayed at a collective exhibition in USA 2007, Germany, and France in 1993. Participated in the International Art fairs in Switzerland, Basel in 1992; also Germany, Frankfurt in 1993; Art Moscow International Art fairs 2004, 2005; and exhibitions in the various galleries.
