The work of Alexander Kalugin one can consider from number of aspects. Art historians will try to relation between past and now, museum directors will judge about the style of Kalugins work able to attract visitors, galerists and investment bankers will maybe believe of the worth of his pictures in the future. All aspects are there, in the work of Sasha Kalugin.
For me — simply art lover — taking not care about all that above, his pictures are those, which transmit very individual, even unique language. Visiting him at home first time, I remember going through all those paintings stored back on back in his living room. I was going through all those drawings laying in the big pack on the grand piano and remember being amazed, enchanted, surprised and impressed of the deep gravity of his work.
