Guardians of Russian Art Meseums | Andy Freeberg

Under - Art, Inspiration, Photography

Long fascinated with the gallery and museum worlds, Andy Freeberg often turns his camera on the dealers, gallery patrons, artists, museum guards, and their interplay with the works of art themselves. His project Guardians, about the women that guard the art in Russian museums, won Photolucida’s Critical Mass book award and was published in 2010.

In the art museums of Russia, women sit in the galleries and guard the collections. When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself. I found the guards as intriguing to observe as the pieces they watch over. In conversation they told me how much they like being among Russia’s great art. A woman in Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery Museum said she often returns there on her day off to sit in front of a painting that reminds her of her childhood home. Another guard travels three hours each day to work, since at home she would just sit on her porch and complain about her illnesses, “as old women do.” She would rather be at the museum enjoying the people watching, surrounded by the history of her country.

Andy Freeberg was born in New York City where he learned at an early age to be a critical observer of the world and the people in it. After studying at the University of Michigan, he began his professional photography career in New York taking portraits for such publications as The Village Voice, Rolling Stone, Time, and Fortune, photographing the likes of Michael Jackson, Bill Gates, and Neil Young. Freeberg has recently emerged on the contemporary art scene as a wry commentator on the art industry itself. Freeberg’s work is in many public and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Portland Art Museum, the George Eastman House, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

In the realm of twilight – Evgeny Lushpin

Under - Art, Inspiration

Paintings that you would want to walk into!

This is the awe-inspiring work of Russian artist Evgeny Lushpin – capturing the lure of l’heure bleue in his city and landscape paintings. His work kind of romanticize the notion of human dwellings such as cities, streets and alleys in a very visually rich and ideally realistic manner that tickles fantasy.

Evgeny Lushpin was born in Moscow in 1966. He graduated from Art-graphic department MGPU and Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts. Evgeny Lushpin’s work represents the best of Russian and West European pictorial art. Heavily inspired by the work of Pieter Bruegel, Andrew Wyeth, Hieronymus Bosch and Edward Hopper, he himself is one of the most outstanding modern Russian painters. His work can be found in many private collections across Russia, Europe and USA.
