Eva Kudukhashvili was born in the small village Tsitelubani,Georgia in 1951. In 1987 she graduated from the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Tbilisi,under the tutelage of Edmund Kalandadze.eva's personality is completely possessed by painting.And although she is an accomplished poet,painting is realy what she lives for.from the time she remembers she was painting,so,she has never questioned herself as to what to do in this life.Her destiny was obvious. at the age of seventeen she knew that she was an artist.Living in communist Georgia,the decision to enter the most respected and difficult Art Academy in Georgia seemed to be the only possible way to start her career,a she studied there, wich could lead Eva to her dream of sharing her paintings with the world,Eva had a dream that creatifity and absolute relianse on intuition in daily blife.For fourteen years Eva was unsuccessful in entering the Academy of Art in Tbilisi,the capital of Georgia. when she finally understood the real reasons for her failure-the absence of a powerful patron and/or not having the means to bribe her way in (as was common throughout the Communist Academia),Eva gtook a bold step in a country known for severe retrubution for those who try and force the system and went directly to the minister of Culture in Georgia asking for Help.Suprisingly,he helped.and, in fact, sent Eva to Art College,where after two years she graduated with the red Diploma,giving Eva the right to enter the Academy of art in Tbilisi,Eva's only real chance of fulfilling her dream.But there again was a new struggle.The struggle to paint in her own way.and it wasn't untilher third year of study that she meet a teacher,Edmund Kalandadze,who would be first to understand her paintings and her genius.
the existense of a talent so innately given to e person as exibited in Eva's work,supported his own contention that genius is the gift of berth.Eva's works are not jast a series of abstract exercises far from human involvement,but are taken from her personal life-experiense.
Eva Elizarova-Kudukhashvili - Honored Artist of Russia
Once a gallery owner told me the Central House of Arts was hosting an exhibition of paintings by a wonderful artist from Georgia Eva Elizarova-Kudukhashvili. Appreciating everything that''s new and talented, I went to the House to see the exhibition. As I was going up to the third floor I felt agitated. I turned my head to where I knew the paintings were exhibited and was flooded with sunshine, a million bright colors. The sunlight and the colors are so abundant that one cannot help feeling embarrassment in the first moments of looking at the works. Though I''d seen handiwork of many various artists, it took me some time to come to my senses after I''d given the paintings the first look. As I was gazing at them, I realized I could hear a lively, rhythmical music, with trumpets playing and light flooding from projectors. Beethoven''s ninth symphony. The march from Verdi''s opera Aida". The opulent colors and flood of energy took me back to my childhood, the world of joyful and sunny reminiscences. Some time had passed before I started seeing a skilful composition, a well-thought-out and logical solution behind the brightness and daring combinations of colors. The perfect line does not simply contour a form (a woman''s figure, a silhouette of two horses), it is the basis of a composition structure. What a divine line it is, so much like a bow-string ringing with tension. This is where the original idea of a painting lies, this is what expresses its mood, movement, dynamics. Here''s a baby climbing over its mother''s back, you can feel the movement. Another painting shows two horses standing side by side. Once you give the pair a close look, you''ll see that one of them has no forelegs, but somehow it does not surprise you, the composition is what it should be, evincing the thorough mastery of the author. A comparison can be made with a portrait of A. Pavlova by the recognized classic of drawing Valentin Serov: the woman is shown half-turned, her left hand is barely outlined, but you never suspect it to be missing.
Eva''s compositions seem simple, but behind this simplicity is a profound logic and clarity of composition thinking. Something that Chekhov said about literature now occurs to me: Conciseness (i.e. clarity) is the sister of talent". This is applicable to painting too: avoid redundancy of words and movements, otherwise the idea of your painting will get lost behind the confusion of numerous lines, the chaos of manifold colors. It''s not a line for a line''s sake, or a color for a color''s sake, these components of a painting should be committed to some idea. So, behind the simplicity and clarity of Eva''s works is deep knowledge that she gained when a student of the Georgian Academy of Arts and from her great teacher Edmond Kalandadze. These are results she has achieved through endless work and good senses of humor and taste. Eva believes one does not have to adhere strictly to one particular style (her style is cosmo-expressionism) and should be ready to adopt other styles too, provided it''s done ably. Behind each painting is a hard labor of preparations, a great many graphic sketches performed in a mixed technique, the best of which becomes the framework of an oil painting. Though, each of Eva''s sketches is noteworthy. Her works are a phenomenon, as they comprise the three elements that are mandatory for creating a painting expertly: they have the perfect outline that forms the right composition solution and the color spectrum that is fully in line with the idea of a painting. The three components make a single whole in Eva''s paintings, looking at which you can never say who she is in the long run - a graphic artist or a painter.
I''d like to note something that a novice needs to know: it''s not important what style you resort to, it''s all about choosing an image, when details become absolutely irrelevant, the idea takes a clear shape and the understanding comes of what colors should be used. Unfortunately, many artists lack the image thinking, which is why their works, irrespective of the format, are frequently only sketchy. Many artists are fond of fancy combinations of colors, their paintings, though they are not bad on the whole, do not impress with the fullness of an image that will linger in memory. As for Eva''s works, they are a fine example of what expertly done paintings should be.
Head Full Of Sun
It''s well-known that art is born from abundance. Abundance of Love, Energy, Gift of Self-expression. This abundance is what Nature has lavished generously on Eva Kudukhashvili. She couldn''t have failed to become an artist. She heard the voice of her Destiny when still a child. This is what the artist herself says: I believe that a human comes to this world more than once and feels, and sometimes knows, who he or she is and what he''s come for. I knew from my early childhood that I''d be an artist". This unwavering faith in her own self, in her artistic originality helped her - at the time she was a student at the Academy of Arts in Tbilisi - escape the Procrustean bed" of the austere academic canons. Her indubitable talent, vigorous artistic temperament, firm character and independence of opinions attracted attention of the famous artist and tactful teacher E. Kalandadze. Eva is grateful to the man for his contribution to her becoming an artist.
Eva Kudukhashvili''s art amazes you with its vivid images, colors, of which she has full command, its poesy and musicality. In her landscapes, houses and trees overlap, clash in a spasmodic rhythm, while colors are blazing in vehement whirlwinds of pasty dabs. The color and dynamics of the salient dab, which is never the same in form and texture, are always adequate to the emotional state of the artist striving to convey the vitality and wealth of Nature''s colors. Kudukhashvili''s canvasses that blaze with vivid cinnabar, ultramarine, canary and bright green colors are bewitching, creating a powerful center of attraction in any exposition hall. The yellow color - her favorite - symbolizes the vivifying energy of the sun.
Van Gogh''s words Life should be sought for in colors" form the keynote of Eva Kudukhashvili''s art. It is from the traditions of Van Gogh and Gaugen''s art that her creative paradigm stems.
There''s another facet to Eva Kudukhashvili''s outstanding artistic gift - drawing. The Dionisean vehemence of her paintings is replaced here with an Appolonic orderliness and contemplation. The harmonic balance of the black and white, expressiveness of silhouettes and preciseness of contours won''t leave you indifferent and linger in your memory for a long time.
Her hyperemotional perception of the world suggests new ways of seeing the reality. I''m certain Eva Kudukhashvili - just like the artist from Balsac''s novel The Unknown Masterpiece - is yet to make new artistic discoveries.
