Tamara Sergijenko 16.12–04.01.16

Recently, the artist Tamara Sergijenko is positioning herself at a polychrome intersection, where events that leave no one indifferent are bubbling. Contemporary features inspire the author of this exhibition to look for new ways of self-expression. Reflections on global issues lead to the origins of the artist’s civilization, which have emerged at the dawn of humanity. The unique color of the past is reflected in the author’s picturesque works, which are unexpectedly “inlaid” with silver jewellery. The viewer, entangled in the subtle “game” of conditional crossroads, becomes the author’s companion when he finds that the eternal pursuit of perfection saves mankind from self-destruction.

In the modern world order, one can often come across the traditions of ancient civilizations. One of them – creating and wearing jewelry – has not lost its relevance today. The magical properties of these stones, which have long been embedded in talismans, amulets and protective elements, gave these things a symbolic meaning. Such small decorative objects, in turn, became accumulators of faith, hope and love, which shaped and regulated the relationship between people according to the event.

Tamara Sergijenko graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts and has participated in many exhibitions here and elsewhere: in America, England, Japan, France, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, etc. The artist has participated in professional symposia in Germany, England and Lithuania. Segijenko has also held master classes in America and Russia and has received numerous awards and diplomas from various competitions.

Tamara Sergijenko’s enamel works can be found in the Golden Book of Collectors (Les Editions Arts et Images, Paris, 1992-1993). The artist’s best works are in museums in Estonia, Russia, America and Germany, as well as in private collections.

Most of T. Sergijenko’s work is dedicated to working with enamel. She uses many different techniques. One of them is a rare window enamel today, which is practiced very little all over the world. With her works of art, Sergijenko proves his continued interest in this old technique from the point of view of both the artist and the viewer.

The exhibition is supported by the Estonian Cultural Endowment
