Connected to the Red Heart

Gerhard Hofland is very proud to present the Exhibition ‘Connected To The Red Heart’ by Yury Kharchenko. Yury Kharchenko (Moscow 1986) was born in Russia and came to Germany 11 years old. From  2004 to 2008 he studied at the Academy of Art in Düsseldorf.
Yury Kharchenko’s works can make one forget that such a thing as pop art and post modernism ever existed. His pictures are completely free of cynicism, and there is nothing second-hand about them. His painting is not that of an epigone. They focus on the formal and emotional possibilities of painting. They are both non-representational – pure visual phenomena  like sounds – and representational – simple shapes such as the houses,   which form the backbone of the cycle, or as the silhouettes of figures hidden in the thickets and scrub of the dark lattice structure of these pictorial spaces. Yury Kharchenko’s paintings are delightful in their texture and their sense of color, stimulating the senses and arousing strong feelings in the viewer. During the school year begins Yury Kharchenko his art studies and graduated with 22 years as a master student at the Dusseldorf Art Academy.
He supplemented his education with scientific, philosophical and theological studies, a background with intellectual depth involving also Jewish thought.
His work is already part of collections like Museum Kunstpalast in Dusseldorf, State collection in Dusseldorf, Felix Nussbaum Haus in Osnabruck and the Kunst aus NRW collection in Aachen. His work was shown in Chaplini Gallery and Otto Schweins Gallery in Cologne, at Frisch Gallery in Berlin and at The Ober Gallery in Kent, USA and many other galleries and institutions.
