„I used Indian ink as a contrast – only the black one at first, and later also coloured ink. The logic of the work resulted in an evenly painted silhouette. Its expressiveness is what counts.“The center of attention in this volume are the versatile illustrations by Alexei Kamensky in juxtaposition with the sensual poems by Russian and French poets. Poets include Alexander Puschkin, Mikhail Lermontov, Vladimir Majakowsky, Stéphane Mallarmé, André Breton and many other grandiose writers. As son of the acclaimed futuristic Russian poet Vassily Kamensky, poetry is clearly reflected in Alexei Kamensky’s works. A unique attachment to poetry and music resonates in his paintings and outlines, which are abundant with impressions and emotions. A truly unique limited edition of 500 copies has been released, signed by the artist Alexei Kamensky himself.
