" Last Self Portrait " 1994

Presenting The  Artistry of Sergei Volkov

(1955-1994 )


An offering of Giclee prints on canvas of images from Sergey's Palette dedicated to Sergey's children. These poignant images are of childhood experiences and of the home life environment. The images reach the heart with compassion and love of the subject matter.


The Children's Album  by Sergei Volkov and Slava Gaivoronsky

Gallery 1

           



    One day when Sergey and I were sitting at the family table we conceived a rather banal idea about creating a "children's album" for our kids. That should be a cycle of light pieces for piano and series of graphic works going with them. In order to avoid rough illustrative associations and co-ordination of music to paintings or vice verse, we agreed not to show each other what we were doing until the full completion of the work

"Cartoons"

   

"Elephant Waltz"

"The Dream"

"First Step"

  Time was passing by in everyday and creative routine, but from time to time when we met or called each other on the phone we would remind each other about our idea. So this way little by little we were making the double cycle of music and painting.

There was strong temptation to have a look or to listen to anything what had been done, but having in mind our promise we went on and at last completed all our planned program.

"Father"

"Grandfather Came"

"The Guests"

"Lullaby"

There was strong temptation to have a look or to listen to anything what had been done, but having in mind our promise we went on and at last completed all our planned program.

Then there was a long awaiting meeting of two  friends? Or two enemies? Or two indifferent layers of colors and sounds? The result of the meeting defied all forecasts.

And then , to my mind, after having seen and listened to the whole cycle, it became clear to us that in any case the gift to our children had come out well.

"Melancholy"

"In The Street"

"Mother"

"The Museum"

 

 Sergey was killed murdered by thugs...yet he was talented and  high-minded, a man full of creative searchers and ideas, yet  the "Children's Album" remains a gift for our children which was not presented while Sergey was alive.

Soon after that a great tragedy happened Galina,  Sergei's widow made great efforts to follow through with the creation of the album and publish the set of diptychs. Now her efforts are being extended to include the creation of  Giclee prints of the poignant images that are in the album.   But "it seems the miracle has come true" children will see and listen to the  "Children's Album".

It is difficult for me to estimate the value of Sergey's and my Gift , but it is not difficult to agree that it has been made with love and sincerity to all the children!

"Opus"

"Kittenpoosh"

      As for me, it is both pleasant and sad for me to understand that this is also a gift for your undying heavenly soul, Serezha.
