Secret Business Plan
Stella Kesayeva - VIP zero's, the time when the domestic art scene out entirely new people. They do not remember, but probably did not know what happened here before. It seemed that they all came from other worlds. But by how acumen with knowledge of local customs and mores, they took up arrangement of its affairs, it became clear that this is not some gods, and yet the local people. They probably came in time when almost all over. That is when the thing of the past boom in contemporary Russian art, but the lull only occasionally vzbalamuchivali one of our tireless performer, when after "defoltnogo the 1998 gallery and community decided to lie down in anticipation of better times. Just this time, and found returning to Russia from abroad Stella Kesayeva.
"When I came back to Moscow (and it was in 2000), then began walking through the galleries of contemporary art. They were few, and almost all of them were either in basements or attics, or in private apartments. Remember those plastic cups on the opening day - everything was somehow unpresentable. I saw how professionally and adequately show the West its artists. And at the same time our artists out there with a few exceptions did not know and did not appreciate. Their work has sought to buy on the cheap, dumped in warehouses in anticipation of what may be something someday will be in demand. And here I thought that we first need powerfully in the gallery to show American art, and then a wave of success set by Russian artists. Since the passage of time Stelle Kesaevoy see its business plan. I guess he kept in great secrecy, because, perhaps, no one came in 2003 at the Stella Art Gallery at the vernissage of the exhibition "From pop art to transavangarda" and never dreamed that someday the work of our artists will take place on the walls, warmed Warhol and Basquiat Vesselmanom.
In 1983. When I preobrel artist's paintings in the family G. Fermanyana, the husband of her daughter showed me the work that he took off the stretcher, put them as a big pile of sheets and stored on a shelf in a closet. I was shocked, chose those works that are no longer menie were in good condition, bought them and went, no longer communicate with the parable. About Gohar Fermanyane, little information, I know that she was the first professional artist of Armenia and was a pupil, KS Petrov-Vodkin.

"I would like to add Artashes Hunanian undoubtedly one of the most interesting charts of Armenia was born in 1922 and died in America do not know which one. Unfortunately, I have none so nothing really to say but could not. He has worked in watercolor, and he had his own Technology, one of my classmates similar effect is obtained by using an eraser and blade. But in general it does not matter. Unanian was quite prolific, he had a large sheet of easel, watercolors, and compositionally it was complex and very "avant-garde, at least in the late 70's - x it was perceived as something quite unusual. I have a book, Abu Lala Mahari Av. Isahakian that Artashes designed, it seems, it - his only work in the book drawing. Unanian disappeared from exhibitions in the late 80's, and then, when moved to America forgot about it completely. But the most offensive that had disappeared, and his numerous watercolors. The only two works that I found on the Internet, give very little impression on the works of Hunanian, but so far it's all there is. "
