Originally from Uzbekistan, Stas Volovik now lives and works in Germany. Volovik’s paintings are very calm and understated compositions of geometric shapes that have been carefully placed in just the right spot. There are many differences, of course, between the paintings, yet there is also an obvious cohesion. Their personalities are subtly different, or different in a minor key, and this is why they keep our attention. Most of the colors are pale, but a studied use of black in small doses, or red here and there, especially in stripes, keep Volovik’s work from being too shy.
