Movement of this artist to the fact that in the 70 years in Moscow has been called "conceptualism", it was smooth. His painting is the late 70's - early 80's - the subtle still lifes, poetic landscapes, scenographic his work - in any case were not a simulation of tradition, they were sincere and an organic part of it. And this sincere attachment to the common tradition allowed him to come to a very original version of artistic practice. Nikolai Ovchinnikov immersed in nostalgia about the past of Russian culture, about the Russian past. Sometimes this nostalgia is ironic tone, but more often it is some sort of enveloping property. As if the film bearing the half-erased traces of the masterpieces of the past (or birch paint) fits the fact that all around us. This film is thin, but flexible and impermeable. Without its own depth, it changes the usual environment, making it aesthetically appealing. It's sort of artificial patina. The conflict between the reality of things and their seductive sheath and is a very interesting achievement of the artist. Another important feature of creativity Ovchinnikova - his ability to pass easily from style to style, from material to material. And the material and style are skillfully used tools that serve to make the film and stretching it into reality.
