Alexander Timofeev is one of the most virtuosic envisioners in present painting. He uses photography not only to come to a amazing reality, but also to rehearse things off the beaten track, which cannot be transposed with paintings in such an extreme expression of a moment. First of all, Timofeev is a great narrator, a performer of psychic dramas, who is geared to and matches himself with the great tradition of the Russian art of narration, for example Dostojewski. For that, he needs the series, the sequence, which enables him to get a deep access to the soul of his protagonists. Thus, his realism is not only one of the epidermis, but one of the events, which go under your skin.
