Constantine Cherkas is most well known for his watercolor and oil landscapes with figures. Also, known for a series of floral paintings. Constantine Cherkas was born Constantine Cherkasheninoff in Sokol, Russia in 1919.  By the age of 9, Constantine was already an accomplished and prolific artist and at 14 he had the good fortune to apprentice under Ila Mashkov, the great the Russian Expressionist. In 1936 Constantine was the youngest artist to ever be accepted into the Moscow Academy for the Fine Arts in the advanced, graduate-level. Cherkas was one of only 30 students to be chosen out of 3,000 finalists in a Russian art competition.  Although his work surpassed the other students, it was interrupted when he was captured by the Nazis and forced to work in a prison labor camp during WWII.  As soon as the war ended he resumed his passion and was accepted into the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, and eventually the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.

 

In 1950, Constantine immigrated to the US with the help of the Tolstoi Foundation and shortened his last name to Cherkas.  In 1951, Constantine became friends with fellow Russian painters Nicolai Fechlin and Leon Gaspar, who had been living in Taos, New Mexico, and began a life-long interest in capturing the beauty of the Southwest in his paintings.  His bright colors and ability to move from modernism to realism has been evident in his work throughout his rich career. His communication through the use of sunlight and color captures the viewer’s attention and brings them in with a pulse and vibrancy that does not let go.

 

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

 

I consider myself an American artist with a predisposition to the Southwest landscape, advancing the American School along the lines of my close friends and compatriots, Nicolai Fechlin and Leon Gaspar, with whom I painted for many years. In 1951, when they first showed me their paintings of the Southwest, I decided then and there that I would dedicate my life to painting the Southwest with the eyes of a painter, and not those of an illustrator.

      

 In my paintings, I treat the problem of form fragmentation similar to the Cubist's manner, but with the addition of a fragmentation of light.  By introducing into my canvasses an element of alternating light moments, I free them from the naturalism of momentary lighting.  This results in canvasses containing the element of the passage of time and achieves an added dynamism without any detriment to the colorful perception of the moment.  By integrating different moments of light in a single composition, my paintings present several moments at once.  

       

There comes a point in one's development when Nature stops being a "motif" for placid observation and one senses that it conceals something else. This "else" injects an intensity into a seemingly serene landscape.  Volumes acquire sharpness of facets, colors become intense and contrasting, spatial planes alternately close in on forms among them or begin to melt and empty.

       

These panoramic landscapes consist of numerous elements, which are brought into a harmonious coexistence on a higher plane, and the viewer experiences satisfaction not so much from the individual's ability to commune with nature, but from the fact that he can contemplate creation."
