Avo Keerend "Natüürmort mustal foonil"

The still-life by Avo Keerend belongs to the same era with the brightest period of Estonian graphical art, but even more to the period of form testing paintings, having renewed the whole art. These paintings relieved themselves from the forced obligation to reflect the reality without any escapades, giving way to creative freedom and fantasy. Instead, Keerend takes the motif of a classical still-life, but instead of everyday things he sees in differently shaped objects form-related discoveries and thrilling findings. No “meaning” or “historical background” of any elements are being revealed to us, but we are shown its geometrical plan, its main form essence.
