“…Works by Alexey Morosov are a kind of bridge between traditional (and paradoxically attractive) ideas of sculpture which is harmonic and transparent; and modern ideas of sculpture which is conceptual-analytical and polemic in its character…”
Alexander Borovsky
Art critic, curator, head of the Modern Trends Section,
the State Russian Museum
St.Petersburg/ Russia

“…Integrating it and directing its transition towards contemporary iconography, without derogating from the hieratic nature of the historical significance.
Bronze, like other “classic” materials facilitate this type of experimentation, of iconographic “transition” and integration between manual labour and technological intervention.
Morosov, as already mentioned, imposes a syncretic strategy also applied to the use of materials, combining “classic” media with technological materials of an industrial nature, as illustrated by the works on display…”

Alessandro Romanini
Art critic, scientific committee president of Foundation Raghianti Lucca/ Italy

“…Alexey Morosov revisits multiple and diverse traditions, fusing the linguistic and iconographic sources – maintaining a balance between adhesion and irony and insinuating bold and unexpected “distractions” – with intentions, signs and themes of a distinctly contemporary nature, while also leading us to reflect on the need, repeatedly manifested throughout history, to elect past models and to express ourselves…”
Paolo Giulerini
Curator, Director of Naples National Archaeological Museum
