Exhibition of Igor Semeko's art 24 May 2010

Exhibition of Igor Semeko's art"He stubbornly goes to his target... there is work ... (and) persistent search for his own style behind his first art success".

That's what the "Maladost" magazine wrote about Igor Semek, a young student from the Belarusian Theater & Art Institute, in 1986. Those words were prophetic: he became a talented monumentalist, a painter, a graphic artist whose sculptures and monumental works decorated health and sport clubs, the streets of Gomel and of the district centers. He really created his unique original style, which was distinctive to him only.

The artist would bring his rich inside world, high intelligence, wide knowledge into his art. He could keep the freshness of the world's perception typical to young people, this sublime and romantic mood. His works are not exactly clear at a first sight; they are surrealistic in many ways; they require reflection and adult analysis, but they are so integral, reassuring and talented that the misunderstanding barrier disappears being replaced by true admiration.

The favorite color combinations of the artist vary from snowy-white, sky-blue to needle-blue and violet-purple. The subjects of his compositions are inexhaustible, and one of them is myths. The picturesque element of the dynamic compositions called "The Fight of the Centaurs", "The Ravishment of Europe", "The Taming of the Centaur" are drawing viewers into their whirlpool. Irrepressible gust of passions, tense bodies stretched in a rush or in defense, manes flapping in the wind, legs interlaced in fierce duel bring emotional heat to the pictures. The landscapes of the artist are declaration of his love to nature, Motherland, native land.

Having delicate sense of humor, the artist creates charade pictures filled with flashing allegory. In a series of pictures titled "Cats of the world, unite!" the artist uses animalistic approach to portray character traits and lifestyle peculiarities of various nations: Frenchmen, Italians, Russians, Englishmen, Germans.

His amazing biblical motives and his portraits are both bewitching, and they capture one's attention by their magnetic "gaze". The image of the Lord both in angels and in a human being is enclosed in the mind, from which it is born and where the thought is kept. One cannot see it neither in an angel, nor in a human, but it controls their entire being. The artist gives angel-like features to the human nature, and those features are filled with internal beauty, peace-making and everything we name by the high word of "humanism". None of the artist's strokes is casual: each stroke contributes to creation of an image.

Artist Igor Semeko untimely deceased from us, but he lives in his inimitable art and in the hearts of his talent's worshippers.
