The exhibition Last One will show Kozyrev's works from the artist's two latest series Lost Edge and Last One, in which his leitmotif is the ruin or fragment. The artist references totalitarian regimes, in particular the U.S.S.R. under Stalin, and its tendency to appropriate and/or censor all avant-garde movements. Kozyrev also alludes to artists such as Malevich and the Suprematist geometries of El Lissitzsky. The layers of pictorial elements and multiple perspective orientations provide a vertiginous experience, as if speeding though a landscape at great height. Kozyrev's painterly vocabulary communicates a state of disorientation to the viewer by denying compositional unity and resolution.
