About the artwork:
“It’s time for yourself: to relax and tune in to a new wave. The character of the painting is caught during this activity. He decided to change his clothes and create a small party for himself – to try on some new outfits, to relax and disconnect from external affairs. Dancing to his favorite music, he happily chooses a new look for the rest of the day. He is inspired by the sunny weather and the view of the Cathedral dome from the bedroom window. His dog is prepared to leave and is waiting for the owner to get ready. The character creates a mood for himself, regardless of anything, and this is his strength. He finds his source of energy in his favorite interior, paintings, pillows, clothes, bags – they are his compass and fortune.
I decided to call the painting ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ because the eponymous musical composition reminds me of a need to set aside some time for yourself: fool around, jump, freeze and listen to silence, or try on new clothes and come up with new combinations in your wardrobe”.
About the Artist
Russian artist Constantin (Costa) Gorelov explores people’s feelings and psychological states, often depicting them through the interaction of the figure with space, items, and fashion. The last attribute is paramount to the artist’s self-expression. It is also a symbol linking epochs, times, and traditions.
Costa has exhibited domestically and internationally. His works are in private collections in Russia and throughout the world. One of his paintings, “Something About The Sea Locked Up,” is in the permanent collection at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia.
