"I'm not trying to imitate someone - I just want to be myself and professionally write my paintings," - Anatoliy Tertychny.
Outside is the harshest month of winter, however it is not a hindrance to visit the gallery "Triptych ART", because here was opened a personal exhibition of the famous Ukrainian artist Anatoliy Tertychny. "Coming back" - it's really warm, cozy, and yet special emotionally, expertly and powerfully. "The exhibition presents artworks written as sixteen years ago, and also more recently," - says the artist.
Opening of the exhibition of Anatoliy Tertychny
Tertychny's artistic style based on a free, lively line, which at ease, but very aptly outlines the form among the massive color spots, combined with complex color ratios and imposition of smears. At first glance, his paintings seem simple and naive, however, this is only at first glance. In the middle lies a deep author's philosophy. By the way, it is possible to feel directly after talking with the author. I felt it when I was drawn to one of the paintings, it was the work "Donbass Steppe". There, amidst a calm, measured life, I saw a huge black smear, which seemed like a big bomb to me. I told the artist about my feelings, and he confirmed that this is the painting written after the so-called "Ilovaysky Kettle". Usually, the artist does not want to talk about his philosophy, he tries to do so that people do not unravel what is hiding far inside. However, it is admitted, in fact, it is not easy to do this.

At the exhibition "Coming back" there is also a village naive of the Carpathian region near Volovets. The main themes of Anatoly's painting are the images of the Earth and the Woman, which he brings to the level of stable concepts of Beauty, Wisdom, and Life. He is not one of those artists who are concerned about the constant search for new topics and stories. His works openly sound "biographical" motifs: they convey what has been assimilated by his own life experiences, what struck, caught on in everyday life. Therefore, through the color-plastic constructions, the author's intonation is transparently read, his own relation to the depicted is his experience, indicated by his love.
