CURTAINS from "Circus" series
48 x 40 cm (18.9 x 15.7")
Moses Feigin is the last Russian avant-garde artist and member of the "Jack of Diamonds" group. Listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He absorbed many styles and trends in his work - fauvism, cubism, post-impressionism, expressionism, realism.
A thick gray curtain is turned back showing the space behind it. But there is another gray canvas there. Feigin was able to create allegory of incomprehensible genesis, when the discovery of one secret of the world reveals the next puzzle, and this can go on and on forever. Gray paint is associated with metal and maybe hinting at the "iron curtain".
