Solo exhibition at the ‘Faces of the Megapolis’ project

This exhibition, which was part of the ‘Faces of the Megapolis’ project, was part of the Moscow Science Festival 12-14 October 2012. The exhibition was held in the ‘fundamental’ library of the Moscow State University, Lomonosovsky Prospect 27.

I was invited to exhibit some of my paintings of Moscow by MSU lecturer Dr. Olga Zinovieva. Supplied with a fantastic pentagon-shaped hall to fill with my paintings, I selected 18 Moscow scenes, including some from the forthcoming ‘Moscow Nights’ exhibition, plus Pierre Konchalevsky’s portrait.

The opening ceremony was unusual, in that it took the form of a lecture. I prepared a short Power Point presentation called ‘My Journey’ about my life; talked about why I came to Russia and about my paintings. A question and answer session followed, and difficult questions were asked: ‘what is creativity?’ one person asked, ‘what is the relationship between science and art’ another asked. Time passed very quickly. Thank you Dr Zinovieva and MSU.
