STEPHAN SPICHER
Ruarts Gallery in collaboration with Dmitriy Semenov Gallery (Saint Petersburg), present the project «BLOSSOM» by Swiss artist Stephan Spicher that was partly exhibited at The Ludwig Museum in the Russian Museum in 2007.


“Kandinsky himself divided his works into "impressions," "improvisations" and "compositions" – depending on their distance from the original impulse of life. At the final stop along the way – "compositions" – the artist arrived at pure abstraction. According to this terminology, Spicher’s Blossoms are, of course, "compositions". There are not representations – they are abstract formulae, colour arabesques. The concept is realized with the help of pure painting – the dramaturgy of the line, patch and colour”. Alexander Borovsky, head of the Contemporary Art Department in the State Russian Museum.
