Contemporary Karakalpak Artists
Still-life with a Lilac-coloued Jingil (Tamarisk)
Oil on canvas. 66 x 91cm
Sarsen Baybosinov (1957-)
Painter, one gifted artists of the younger generation. Graduated from the Art School named after J. Shamuratov in Nukus. Among his paintings prevail genre scenes and still-lifes, where the main motif is associated with colourful tonality. His pastel compositions with domination of silvery and lilac tones and touches of reddish and brown paints give an impression of colour and light, airiness. One can feel material tangibility of depicted objects in his works, although their contours are not clear and melt into the background.
