“I like an image to be ‘solid on its feet’, to be structured…. Despite this discipline, I have an emotional attitude to painting, and I love to discover an image as it develops, rather than to begin with my own concept or ’story’. I believe the perception of a painting should come from the heart over the mind—it always does for me….When I draw and paint, I respond to the pure loveliness of a gesture, a laugh, or perhaps a hint of sorrow or joy in a glance, or a poignancy in the placement of the hands or the set of the shoulders: I seek to capture an instant.” Born in the Urals and originally trained as an architect in Moscow, Valery Koroshilov lives in London. He has participated in over 100 exhibitions worldwide.
