The Song Song

I usually say “art is a mirror” a mirror that another person (the artist) placed intentionally in front a particularly light, scene, or reflection (maybe our reflection). However, some artists (the masters) can break the mirror and create several parallel worlds into their artworks. Alex Nasekin is always creating a dialogue in his imaginative paintings. Sometimes, it’s a girl caught among hard irons, which pretend to be toys, who asks a kitten about the air free, about the true nature. Sometimes are embracing couples who share their feelings about the future or about their roots, lost in the mist of times, in the vacuum of an Egyptian eye. I really like “Two” because the mirror looks at us in an effort to hear our voices, from beyond. And what to say about “The Abduction of Europe”, the timeless Greek myth of a beginning: red and green, speed and calm, anger and love. Yes, always two halves which make up the great unity.

The Russian author Valery Petrovskiy has said about Alex Nasekin artwork: “Nasekin never paints flowers in the fields, and he never paints still life. To do so would be like taking pictures of deceased, whereas Alex is so lively by his nature. His art is on the edge of still life and natural flowers, and it meanders to a thin border between the past and the future. Reality is not just comprised of the “here and now”, you know. No work by Alex Nasekin is ever artificial; it’s so genuine as if drawn on the skin just stripped off, and it startles a viewer as if one is just being touched by a spiky icicle…”

The fear of the road

The fear of the road

Icicle? Russian artists are always deep. In their immense land they see the immensity of art, the immensity of the border between reality and fiction, perhaps more real because the imagination is more powerful than the strict rules of our reason. Nasekin is sincere and in spite of his great technique applying colors, he uses one thousand and one gray colors when he wants to concentrate himself on the pure shapes of a universal thought. What do you think spectator? What are you thinking? Come, go to the other side of the painting, beyond our boring reality.

Congratulations, Alex!

Alex Nasekin Bio

Russian artist Alex Nasekin showed up in 1988 when his first personal exhibition took place at the Chuvash State Art Museum, Russia. Soon after he had his work exhibited inMoscow, then inWeimar,Germanyand some other cities abroad.

His artwork is never confused with anybody’s: it’s a warm world, sometimes intensely affectionate. Even if his painting is in grey color, his universe is bright: it’s done of numerous dewdrops to reveal the sun.

In May, 2011 his graphic work received Grand Prize at Russian Art Week inMoscow.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
