Summary
Kantarovsky's practice encompasses painting, drawing, sculpture and occasionally film. His signature works often have thinly applied, wiped, or scraped layers of paint, and feature narrative scenes populated by isolated, sinewy figures. His paintings frequently include indirect sociopolitical commentary and a critical look at the idea of the suffering artistic genius. The publication will feature a selection of recent works alongside his Studio Voltaire commission, 'Apricot Juice'. A collaboration between Kantarovsky and Lithuanian-born performance artist Ieva Miseviciute, 'Apricot Juice' was devised around two distinct parts - a language and movement based performance by Miseviciute and a group of five large scale paintings by Kantarovsky. The point of departure for the collaborative project was Mikhail Bulgakov's enigmatic masterpiece novel 'The Master and Margarita', a narrative woven around a visit by the Devil to the aggressively atheist Soviet Union.
