Azerbaijani young artist’s first solo exhibition to be opened in YAY gallery
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 13 / Trend V. Imanov /
The first solo paintings and sculptures exhibition of Vusal Rahim, an emerging artist of Azerbaijan will open in Baku's YAY gallery at 19:00 on June 14, 2013.
"Black Woman" exhibition constitutes a unique canticle to a female, a mother, an inamorata. It is a long time Vusal Rahim had a clear interest in exploring dual nature and immensity of womanhood. The female personages Vusal Rahim created are earthling, real and housekeeping-concerned women; however, the author also depicts lofty ideal-driven female creatures that overlook the globe while being high and mighty. His personages represent evanescence and stand in need for protection, yet are in the best position to defend their nearest and dearest. Sensuality and spirituality of the personages are mystically merged, so Our Time artists and poets like their antecessors draw inspiration from this mystery.
Vusal Rahim's interpretation of female personages strongly revives ancient totem images, figurines of pagan fertility goddesses or Junoesque full of life and sexual energy boost.
Vusal Rahim, a graduate from Azerbaijan State Art Academy, was born in the city of Ganja in 1987. He has been involved in projects by YARAT! Contemporary Art Space for more than a year and has been cooperating with some Baku-based theatres as theatre designer. Azerbaijan State Drama Theatre and Theatre of Musical Comedy successfully host plays designed by Vusal Rahim.
