Dimitri Kozyrev brings together a visual for landscapes that truly explores the potential they contain.  His current work on show at Breese Little Gallery in London at the moment explores real landscapes and those of the mind.  The abstraction of what is there is distorted, twisted amongst the knowns and reference points.  Colliding with vibrant use of colour and graphical composition.  The landscapes feel alive yet hark back to sites of destruction where probably movement has stopped and nature has taken over.  Whilst looking through more work by Dimitri Kozyrev  it was interesting to see the drawings he makes.  These minimal ghost like drawings capture the landscape whilst delivering them as part of a wider blank canvas.  Whilst landscapes are normally large and hard to absorb with one gaze here you can take in a large portion of the landscape but for me it is the inability to take in the blankness, the blurred emptiness that surrounds the drawing.  Incredible work that really does explore elements that I am currently concerned with in my own practice.  If you would like to see more work by Dimitri Kozyrev either visit Breese Little Gallery, Kozyrev exhibition is on till the 1st of June or click here to visit his website
