The Doorway Gallery is delighted to host a new collection of works by Sergey Talichkin.
The Exhibition will take part , in our main gallery , 24 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2. the exhibition will open this thursday 16th and will run until 30th November.
Twenty years ago painter, Sergey Talichkin launched his first Irish solo show, 'Mindscaping' at Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre.
Studied Fine Arts at The Precarpathian University, Ukriane, Sergey had his work included in several exhibitions in Ukraine before he moved to Ireland in 1999.
Since then his work has frequently been purchased at the 'Contemporary Paintings and Prints Sale' at James Adam & Sons Ltd. and his exhibitions have been critically acclaimed and sold out.
Based in Dublin, he works predominantly in oils, experimenting in a diverse range of styles. His inspiration comes from the magnificence and mystery of nature and mythology.
Sergey is 44-years-old and was born in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine
"Talichkin’s portrayal of the natural world, landscape, seascape, skyscape, stunning cloudscapes in changing, different light is masterly and these nineteen paintings around us take us places – to Dun Laoghaire Harbour, a harvest field. Glendalough, Skellig Islands, the city at night, Dalkey, Howth. AND of course the Poolbeg Stacks - saved by St Leo Varadkar, no kidding. The Poolbeg Chimneys feature three times in this exhibition; that walk to Poolbeg Lighthouse is my favourite walk in Dublin and it’s another reason why I love Sergey’s work. And, for Killarney-born me, one of the very best things about Sergey is that his favourite place in Ireland is County Kerry. He’s a discerning guy; he has great taste.
Born in Ukraine, he has made Ireland his home and not only is he technically brilliant, this young man has soul. In his art he has allowed Irish people view the Irish landscape with a refreshed pleasure. His Glendalough is a moody blue; his canal back walk is still and greeny; his Ballycarbery Castle is ghostly and beautiful. "NIALL MACMONAGLE (Sunday Independent)
