The coming exhibition of Savchenko’s works on paper, again justifies this artist’s considerable reputation in Europe and America. Gallery Nine By Five has great pleasure in showing this unquestionably magnificent collection which must be seen by any serious collector, or lover of fine significant art.

Savchenko’s figurative work is often charming, but never superficial, and there is a quality of naivety here which has been developed with sophistication and maturity.

It is hard to find anyone quite like Savchenko. The energy and exhilaration which characterises his paintings, at first seems to echo Willem de Kooning, but there is also a distinctive iconic potency in his work which points beyond the image. Even if this artist does not interpret his work in any religious terms, it is hard to escape the feeling that, at least in his portraits, there is something of George Roualt ‘s earnest simplicity behind them.

This show of works on paper includes a collection of ‘drypoints’ . Artists like Savchenko thrive on the untameable character of this medium, and each of the works shown, are lyrical and profound
