Signed (lower right) Oil on canvas 40 x 50 cm (153/4 x 19 3/4in.) Painted in 1997 “The main theme of my paintings is nature and man in its environment, but not in naturalistic perception of them… My characters now separate, break into parts turning everything into chaos, now join as mosaic into post-objectless world creating different compositions… The organic world – nature and man – brings me to a new understanding of space measure” Igor Novikov Igor Novikov is a Swiss- Russian painter, former member of Non-Comformist group (‘unofficial art’ produced in the former Soviet Union from 1953- 1986, which did not conform with Socialist Realism), member of the Russian Academy of Arts.
