Alimirzoyev’s ethereal canvases remind one of the texture of dreams – gilded, saturated, bright, yet elusive. Even in his still lives, a rather classical and conservative genre, he has retained his signature manner of painting, his stylistic originality. The pastiche of the old masters harmonizes with the fundamental ideas of modern art. This same bridge through time is evoked upon viewing Alimirzoyev’s landscapes, with their ghostly worlds, that differ ever so slightly from the real universe.
Other works by him forces the viewer to ponder the depths of mankind’s problems.
