Denis Sarazhin's Light Sadness, Grief and Loss

"In my opinion, there are a lot of great artists who continue the traditions of a more classical understanding of depicting real life. But with the whole eclectic movement in modern art and its big capital concentration on more radically subjective styles, a big section of young artists now neglect traditional knowledge."

The artist works in different genres - portraits of contemporaries, still life, landscape. The main technique of Sarazhin's creativity is a transformation of reality for the sake of achievement of stronger artistic generalization. Sarazhin found his original style and visual method. In some of his works, a viewer may see a minute impression of the author, while in others - a philosophical parable or metaphor. The artist values both. Sincerity remains the most important aspect of his work. Sincerity in everything he does: If I am sincere, the viewer is sure to feel it.
