“European art lovers are familiar with Konstantin Troitsky, since so many of his works have found a home in the museums and private collections of France and Germany. Notwithstanding the effect of classical European art on his style, his paintings remain stubbornly individualistic in their use of the so-called “object-shadow style”. Relying on a subtile use of light and shade — the former to create the illusion of wide open spaces and the latter to underscore critical details — his creative world also suggests a hint of the transcendent in the realm of the everyday.”
