About Vadim Puyandaev

 

Vadim Puyandaev (visual artist/performer) has worked as a painter, sculptor, and designer for over twenty years and has been participating in multi-media installation-performances since 1994.

 

His fine art has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Russia, Israel, Japan, Switzerland, France, Spain, Canada, and the US. Puyandaev had also produced numerous pieces of monumental art, including a commission to design a bridge over the Red Sea in Israel.

 

With Tsimbrovsky, he is a founding member of the creative collectives EVM Laboratories (Israel) and Avy K Productions (US), dedicated to investigating what emerges in performance at the nexus of different genres.

My work captures the ineffability of childhood, delight in the fantastic ordinary, awakening in the viewer flickers of recollection that float like dust on a shaft of light. I am perpetually fascinated by movement—the perambulatory, dancing body, birds on the verge of flight, the transfer of light as it traverses and reflects varying surfaces—and images evoking this movement repeatedly emerge in my work.

 

Form materializes naturally and unprovoked, from a childlike disregard and a willingness to follow blindly the movement of my hand across the canvas. Fine lines—scratches layered over contrasting chunky brushstrokes, daubs of light—unearth figures, suggestions of life in the dappled world of the painting.
