Jemal Kukhalashvili – Retrospective

23 March 2023 18:00 - 8 April 2023 18:00


Jemal Kukhalashvili (b.1952) graduated from the Tbilisi Academy of Art in 1978 and began his creative career in the 1980s. His creative work is characterized by a distinct personality. He depicts everyday life in all its complexities and variety. The artist’s perception of the world is so intense and sharp that it appears to be unable to fit anywhere, even on the canvas. In Jemal Kukhalashvili’s world model, there is one “big fuss and chaos…” and it is here that the artist’s amazing talent is revealed; the amazing mastery of fine art, painting, or colour composition that determines the artistic order in the works, the order that has no rules and is the result of an irrational creative process. Djemal Kukhalashvili wrote about himself and his art – “The picture is clear to me and serves no philosophical purpose. I create in response to what happens around me. I am confident that the audience will attend my session and will both appreciate and despise… I will never know the result, like Noah’s ark, where my irresistible desire for survival and establishment will lead me.”
