Russo-French artist Boris Zaborov opens exhibition at Friedman & Vallois
A walk, 2001. Acrylic on canvas, 67 x 51 ¼ inches.
NEW YORK, NY.- Friedman & Vallois is for the first time exhibiting the works of Russo-French artist Boris Zaborov, from April 10 to June 14, 2014. The exhibition will feature a wide selection of his works from different mediums: paintings, sculptures and works on paper.

Zaborov’s works are included in major museum collections including the Albertina Museum in Vienna, Mathildenhöh Museum in Darmstadt, Pushkin Museum in Moscow, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the Russian Art Museum of St. Petersburg, the Tretyakov Gallery, the Museum Art and History of Judaism in Paris and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. In 2008, the Uffizi acquired a self-portrait, made in 1998 titled “The artist and his model” thereby joining the collection of self-portraits begun by the Medici in the sixteenth century and hung in the famous "Vasari Corridor ".

An intimate nostalgia reigns over the whole spirit of his work. In what universe does this "Man with a flower pot" belongs to? As in Dostoevsky’s realm: man is the only focus of Boris Zaborov.

As for his bronzes as if patinated by time, paradoxically, they deliver a sense of indestructibility. His bronze monument of four meters high, entitled "l’Ecriture et le Livre” (“Scripture and the Book") installed in 2007 in the park of the Technion Institute in Haifa, Israel. This installation was produced in collaboration with architects Michael Seltser and Shaul Kaner. A variant of reduced dimensions is at the Museum of Art "La Piscine" in Roubaix, France.

Moreover, written text is always present in the work of Zaborov. In 2013, he creates a new series of works entitled "Correspondances", where the artist uses old postcards which he highlights and re-interprets. We can identify his self-portrait or Andrei Rublev's (c. 1360/70 – 1427/30) famous 15th century icon kept in the Tretyakov Gallery.

His work evokes successfully the feeling of time lost and wistfulness.
