По-русски 'Monogram' of artist Vladimir Zagorov (Tolstoy)

Vladimir Zagorov

Hello, my dear friends, children, and family! ▪ Few years ago I rather abruptly resisted the need to make my own website – probably because of misunderstanding what it is needed for. But today many works have accumulated in the studio, and I have no idea how to display them. No exhibition, even most broad and detailed, would fulfill this task. And besides, it is almost impossible to organize such exhibition, if works, which are now in foreign countries, would be included into it. Their owners’ addresses are not always known to me. ▪ All my works – pictures, sculptures, collages…. – emerged from meeting with reality, experiencing and reading it. Reality – with this word we call life, all of its manifestations…. And that’s why I consider myself a realist. ▪ What you will see here is a journey – a little journey, very little, but even it can weary you; you know how to end it – just press the button, and return home. ▪ Earliest works shown here are dated 1972. Earlier works were consciously not included in the site. Maybe later they will be shown too, if I will feel such necessity. From time to time the site will be updated with new materials, texts, photographs, images of new pictures, objects, drawings…. and works made in the past – if I will find them somewhere. ▪ I’ll try my best to put here information about my latest exhibitions and projects – about everything interesting to me. ▪ I’ll be happy if you find this journey interesting and would like to return to it sometime.
// See you! Vladimir Zagorov. July 2008
