Shining Glass and Softness Fabric 

The Show of Natalia Muradova, Timur Sazhin and Lidia Fomina

on June 4 – 29

On June 4, the show of Natalia Muradova, Timur Sazhin and Lidia Fomina titled Shining Glass and Soft Fabric opens at the All-Russia Museum of Decorative, Applied and Folk Art.

The idea of this show is to demonstrate the unity and struggle of opposites on the example of works in glass and fabric. Artists strive to express their creative plans only by aesthetical means, without any explanations, leaving it for the viewer to interpret what he or she sees.

The combination of technological experiments with such diverse in their texture materials, together with fantasies involving the motifs of water, smoke, sky, wind, sand, find their embodiment in incredible artworks of these authors. The colorful art objects – harmonious textile sculptures and mosaics by Natalia Muradova – reveal Russian landscapes, exotic parks and nature in blossom. Timur Sazhin and Lidia Fomina use glass casting to create monumental glass reliefs and sculptures on diverse subject matter, including nature, music, stories from the Bible.

Many artworks of these authors will be displayed for the first time at our show.
