Pianist Friend Vladimir Khomyakov

“There is something uniquely and utterly magnificent about a gifted and brilliant classical musician, such is Vladimir Khomyakov. Vladimir is easily one of the finest pianists I’ve yet encountered.

Vladimir has an honest and wise understanding of the classical music.

… He has a truly inspiring take on giving live performances that is refreshing and underscores his love of music and his commitment to the integrity of classical music and moving his audiences.”

ART OF THE FUGUE /FLIGHT.


Painting and sound as an active movement and sensual in the pursuit of art itself .

Crosses boundaries of cultures thus remaining integral to ones roots, Nevertheless. Origins are openings to universal concepts  of form and vital at their core,  as in music and nature..

Unlimited dimensions leading the action of painting, an expression of reality to abstraction,  into the journey . 

The aural and visual movement of emotion, AS SOUND Thus Becoming the voice of expression giving  each Painting as in Music its own life.

'Art as form of expression from one single individual is a vital necessity for our human existence to learn to see, feel and to evolve'.


DIALOGUE

An imposing, highly polished, ebony concert grand piano confronts all visitors to Ruth Gonzales’ workshop. Consuming a third of the available space, the piano would make more sense in a music conservatory than an abstract painter’s studio space.

However, a quick look at the remaining space shouts: An artist works here! Palette knives, brushes, mortars-and-pestles, paints and other tools of her craft populate the atelier. All of remaining spaces are lined with large, partly completed canvases. One yet-to-be stretched painting can be found flat on the floor, just a few steps from the front door.

Ruth Gonzales was born, raised and trained as a classical figurative artist in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, four hours south of the Arizona/Mexico border. The artist worked as a missionary in Southern Mexico before moving to this desert in 1990.

The artist’s classical training presents itself in her abstractions: forms are suggested, 

not obvious. 



HANDS ON

Her deconstruction process produces a tremendous sense of depth.

“It is her understanding of form,” said Jorge Mendez, of Jorge Mendez Gallery, “that allows her to retain its essence while creating an abstract painting. Her finished pieces contain a unique tension.”

Gonzales told me she finds painting on a flat, two-dimensional surface not to be limiting, but to be “freeing.” Her freemdom is likely furthered by the fact that the natural and reflected light in her studio produces an ethereal, almost otherworldly aura that is inviting yet mysterious.
