When the towers came down I heard children laughing as they swam in the warm muddy water.

Look at the stories. And the interesting way he tells them. There is a dance passing through each piece. Nikolay Reznichenko

Nikolay Reznichenko was born in Saratov region of Russia, in 1958.
From 1982 Nikolay had lived in Karelia (Russia), where he taught painting and graphics. It was in Karelia, in 1986, where his first exhibition took place. Its success determined the future success of his works in many other exhibitions.

That same year he moved to St Petersburg. From 1989 Nikolay Reznichenko was a member of Free Arts Association where he permanently participates in all exhibitions. To a considerable extent his art was influenced by the Russian Orthodox tradition of icon painting; he has direct experience in working with icons and restoring them.

I went out with my father to fish one night. A small plane flew above our heads. The moon was soft and yellow like butter. My father cleared his throat. The smoke from his cigar twisted into the cool night air.

Now we have bushes and rocks, and landscaping. And I am as guilty of this as anyone. I just don’t like gardening. I’ve tried it. My knees don’t appreciate the work. Perhaps an older generation were closer to the farm, to the rural life. Or perhaps they believed in an Eden. Even if it was just their back yard.
