Viktor Brindatch was
born in USSR. He lived and studied in Kharkov. He is a graduate of the Moscow
University, a member of the Union of artists in USSR and of the International
association of painters and sculptors. Since 1993 he lives in Israel. He is a
master of ****cal superb color specialist. His favourite plots are connected
with Jewry "Torah", tradishions and modern life which has found its embodiment
not only in painting, but olso in sculpture. Viktor Brindach's pictures decorate
private collections all over the world. Since 1996 f his exhibition have passed
David's Jerusalem gallery' and also in galleries of New York (Brooklyn) and San
Francisko. In 1999 there was his personal exhibition in Tel Aviv's Hall of
Painters and sculptors and in 2004 he had another one, in Jerusalem, called:
"The AlefBeit". I look at Viktor Brindach's pictures on his site in internet.
Gray-bearded oldmen and boys with side curls, the paradise good natured animals,
the pacified eternity of sacred letters of the Torah. We can see the Jewish
world. Click of the mouse and I watch a page of the Soviet period. And now we
can see builders of communism, cheerful sportswomen, and serious steelmakers.
But what is it? There no signs of slightest socialist rialism! The same
antiquated motives, the same plots: a Bar-Mitzvah Chassids, children and animals
with human faces.
All the same intolerable, exulting palette of pictures, the same strict completeness and restraint of copper moulding. In Viktor Brindatch's images you will not find any "before and after" "Soviet and postSoviet". Perception of the world. Changes in it first of all cyclic, calendar: Change of the day and night, youuth and maturity, alteration of death and the birth, announcing firmness of a plan of the creator.
Jewish people in Brindach's pictures also appear as a unit. Time which has been streched from creation of the world up to now, is compressed and disappears, and the thousand-year history appears as one capacions parable. That is whay Moisy and Jakov are like modern spanish jews, and foremother Rahel' "a fantastic medieval princess". That is why Ashkenazi boys cheerfully jump bottom of the sea, overtaking the patriarches leaving Egypt. Favourite hero of Brindach is "The Jew in a praying Shaw". Who travels from a picture to a picture, turing sometimes in to a black-eyed curious child or a respectable old man. Of man's images prevail. There are not enough woman: this subject bearing secret secret, remains untold. The artist avoids to speak about the woman directly. But the nature in his pictures is through penetrated with bewitching, invicibly attractive force of true feminity. We have got used to that wives and beloved. Were the painters muses Rembrant had Saskia, Daly had Gala. Brindach's muse became his daughter Vera. Probably, it is her image that made so fair thr other images in the pictures made his colors so bright which captivates us in works of her father. Children can create a fairy tale, therefore even disturbing and tarrible, like Egyptian executions or phantoms in beit kneset, at Brindatch do not frighten but enchant. And the sculpture "Vera on a turtle" a small masterpiece. Looking at it you can understand why in ancient times our acestors did not create images: this simple and pure touching baeuty should be involuntarily worshipped.
