The year of 1988 was the start point for the Russian Avant-garde. It happened at the famous art auction Sotheby’s where Russian Art found itself involved in the global art market. The edge of 1980 – 90s was marked by enormous interest in avant-garde art in Russia and abroad both among researchers and public. After a long-standing social-realistic period and a certain ideological pressure new culture and young Russian art were longing for a stable pied-?-terre. Modernism and Russian Avant-garde appeared to be the simply the best platform for it. For Alena Kogan, the graduate of Gorky State University, this process was the main reason of her interest in Art of the early twentieth century. The 1990 – s are well-known in history as critical years both political and social wise.. For Kogan the following art scenes work the best to reflect the reality of those times: glass made bottles, empty plates, pieces of newspapers – the objects of passing away household. Still Life art pieces of Kogan are done in cubofuturistic manner with its specific deformation and forms generalization. Some of the pieces and elements of the artworks are separated and gathered together again to push traditionally static still life genre to the motion and dynamics. Alena Kogan works with tempera - the very old art technique which creates unique and special picturesque effects. Nowadays tempera is forward looking way for the artist to express artistic ideas in the best possible manner.
