MASTER OF THE LANDSCAPE
Konstantin Druzhin works in the best traditions of the Russian realistic art. In the pictures the artist creates the spiritualized image of the nature, whether it be Kuril mountains or coast of the Pacific Ocean in the Far East, the woods, fields and the rivers of a midland of Russia or views of foreign countries. The accord of the nature and artist's soul is impossible without continuous communication with the nature. Therefore Konstantin Druzhin travels much.
The special originality of landscapes of Konstantin Druzhin consists that, representing the modern nature, he is able to tell at the same time of her centuries-old life which echoes are visible also in a slow current of the deep rivers, and in a deficiency of woody distances, and in silence of the obscured mountains. So Konstantin Druzhin finds the way to creation of a landscape - a picture of deep spiritual contents.
Infinitely the new word in painting is hard to say, it is especially difficult to make it in a landscape. Nature really a bezdonna, the nature is victorious and curative as a hobby the person, and Konstantin Druzhin looks for new beauty with more trembling feeling of eternity of a face of the Nature. Cloths of the artist can foretell long and useful life.
Works of the artist are in numerous collections in Russia and abroad.
