Fyodor Krushelnitsky. Figures of time
Fyodor Krushelnitsky is both sculptor and philosopher. His monumental sculptures are short-spoken and made in the style of industrially socialist epos. The majority his sculptures work as a memorial of Soviet era and pay a tribute to heroic pilots, sailors’ wives, students of workers’ courses and sportsmen. We can distinguish the same characters not only in a stout bronze sculptures, but in the drawings as well, that are full of lambent humour. All the works are filled with meaning by the sculptor, who adds the distinctive symbols to each character like it is done in the ‘St.Andrew the First – Called’ or ‘Sigmund Freud’ sculptures.
