Exhibition “The Way of Salvation” by Anatoliy Sysolov



Exhibition period: August 4 –September 20, 2017

Location: Arts and Crafts Department (23, Kooperativnaya str., Khotkovo)


August 4, 2017 an exhibition “The Way of Salvation” by the sculptor, the honored artist of Russia Anatoliy Sysolov began its work. The exhibition coincided with the 90th anniversary from the birth of author.

Anatoliy Sysolov is a truly Russian national artist, a passionate proponent and continuer of the best traditions of native art. He is a master of genre composition and portrait. His works have an actuality of ideological intention, a certain completeness of volumes, realistic generality of images, a delicate symbolism. His creativity is free from external declamatory message; images created by him are always expressive and very emotional.

His creative path is marked by the projects of monuments, many of which are installed in different cities of Russia. Among of them are the sculptural images of the state leaders and the heroes of the Revolution. Five of his works decorate the façade of Kursk atomic station.

A special place in the zone of author’s creativity takes place a theme of the Great Patriotic War. The sculptor brings his own “fresh eyes” and the subjectivity of the perception into decision of this theme; he himself aspired towards the individualization of the image. It is important for author to perpetuate the heroic deed of the Soviet soldier, and to reflect an emotional state of surviving war people.

The author is especially proud of monuments and memorials to the memory of soldiers who died in the Great Patriotic War in Kasimov, Kaluga, Krasnoarmeisk, Krymsk, in Barkovo village of Pushkino district, in Mamontovskiy village, in Skoropuskovskiy village and in Ptitsegrad of Sergiev Posad district.

In the late 1980s Anatoliy Sysolov experienced the carved Orthodox icon. The restoration of ancient traditions of carved icons with painting and gilding, creation of Orthodox sculpture and the sculpture on the religious plots became the leading lines of the creativity of sculptor during last years. Carved icons and reliefs by Anatoliy Sysolov have the graceful drawing, fine plastic and definition of shade figures, harmony of decorative and ornamental motives, and softness of colors. Carved icons by Anatoliy Sysolov have earned the approval of hierarchy of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The artist is one of the initiators of the foundation of section of the Temple art at the Moscow Artists Union and is an active participant of exhibitions of section of the temple art.

The exposition presents works of many years from the collection of the Museum-Reserve “Abramtsevo” and the collection of author. It includes more than 50 sculpture works, 15 reliefs and carved icons, and more than 50 graphic works.
