Mozart

Mozart

Alexander’s father, a professor of art, recognized his son’s gift and - from early childhood onward - busied himself with Alexander’s upbringing and studies. He employed the method and approach of the great artist Mozart and encouraged Alexander to see colors and hear music in all things and to transmit them into his paintings. So it comes as no surprise that Alexander Solotzew dedicated a series of paintings to this (or these?) great man (men) ...

Russian Ballet and Circus

Russian Ballet and Circus

Several years ago, the Russian Commission for Choosing Outstanding Artists recognized Alexander Solotzew as a worthy heir of Russian avant-garde art. Alexander has collaborated closely with the Russian Museum ever since, creating magnificent series of paintings on the themes of "Russian Ballet" and “Circus” that were prominently displayed by the Russian Museum at exhibitions in Europe.

From his childhood onwards, Alexander has been fascinated with the Circus. Later in life, Alexander sometimes followed Circus trains around the world to capture that special moment of revelation and enlightenment so much needed in his work. Recently, in the United States, the artist met excellent circus performers from world-renowned circuses, who provided a lasting inspiration to Alexander as he continues working on the theme “Circus”.

Puppets and their Masters

Puppets and their Masters

Thinking of Platon's ancient idea: Are we puppets being controlled by the strings of society? Or did we become the powerful force ourselves?

Sometimes we feel that someone manipulates us. Sometime we feel that we are playing someone. But if we think long enough about it, we may realize that the whole reminds us of a Puppet Theater full of Puppets and Puppeteers ...

Nudes in Red

Nudes in Red

When the Artist is working with models he implements the principle of the "living line" where he creates a painting very close to reality. The red and blue basically associate with a hot surface and cold water making an explosion in the viewer’s mind. He applies this unusual color combination to transmit the real beauty of the feminine body. On the large format canvases, using wide and thick oil brushstrokes Solotzew masterfully creates beautiful Amazons of our days.

Dance

Dance

Dance has always been an exciting theme for Alexander Solotzew: the Tango, the Cuban Salsa and the Spanish Flamenco. He was especially attracted by the sensuality and the enjoyment, but also the expressiveness and the precision of movements. The biggest challenge, however, is to recognize and filter out this singular unique moment out of a continuously moving scene and capture it for eternity with the slowest of all media: the paintbrush on a canvas. Alexander can do it.

From Paris with Love

From Paris with Love

Alexander Solotzew has developed an idea to express the harmony between human beings and architectural structures. Contrast of red, black and white colors create a classical look.

No one is left indifferent, even motionless buildings are reflecting the dance with their tilting angles.

"From Paris with Love" is captivating and provoking at the same time. Meanwhile, the Artist offers a few secret signs to unfold to the inquisitive viewers. Alexander often visited Paris and always wanted to create a special element of Parisian flirt reflected in his artworks to express it the way that will make everyone feel at ease and recognize something personal in it.

Provence

Provence

In the beginning of the 90s, Alexander Solotzew spent significant time in the South of France in search of new inspiration. "It's an amazing place, known as 'The Light of the South' and is closely associated with the Masters of Impressionism. White and blue mountains, turquoise cool rivers, fields, blazing with red poppies in spring and changing to mesmerizing violet waves of lavender and golden sunflowers in summer.”

It was here, in solitude with nature, that Alexander created these amazing masterpieces. To this day, his paintings of the “Provence" series are recognized by collectors and art lovers as the brightest and most colorful, conveying the true living beauty of nature.
