Romantic extravaganza by eyes of modern fabler.
To enter in the fantasy world of Russian artist Konstantin Kansky is to enter in the fairy tale that takes you from the ordinary life to the ideal land like Earthsea of Ursula LeGuin. That land exists somewhere near ours as the parallel reality that in mystic and subtle way appears in dreams and reveries. There are no cars and skyscrapers, TV and atom electric stations, violence and wars, homeless and "new Russians". There the hot cold autumn tenderly turns into the warm summer winter. Everything is fantastic in Kansky's art - landscapes with the Gothic houses on the ledges of the rocks, on the island or in the wild forest, genre scenes with the strange persons in wide-brim sharp-pointed hats and in medieval carnival clothes. The artist creates his own iconography. Kings, jesters, flying musicians, traveling actors, pioneers, sorcerers and beautiful ladies, philosophizing pilgrims occupy the space of his paintings, travel from one picture to another, creating the strange game of meanings, allegories and symbols.
