Yuri Chursin is a painter born in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. For a long time, he lived and worked in Krasnodar, but in 2019, he moved to Sochi. His works are in the collections of Erarta Museum (St. Petersburg), Kreissparkasse (Ludwigshafen, Germany), and other private collections. In his works, he explores the facets of the conceptual eclectic of classical postmodernism and its intertextuality. The imagery used in this work turns to the comprehensive power of metanarratives. The artist creates opposite charge sources and adjusts their interaction in such a way that something that is born through a dialog is capable of withstanding the deactivating the power of postmodern irony. Despite the activity of the characters, this work is static; despite the presence of avant-garde elements, reality is stronger and is not subject to change.
