The artist writes about the work: "The Little Brook is a piece from the "Agents of Intuition" series. The entire series was created during the difficult year of the pandemic, and it spreads the anti-crisis message. <...> I wanted to make tactile, domestic works, that you can hug and touch. It is known that touch soft fabrics and fur of pets calms down the human nervous system. I wanted art to enter homes, since we missed the opportunity to see it in galleries and museums
.
<...> Once back in school, I was talking to my art teacher about work breaks, pauses, and crises. Then he told me: "It's important that the brook keeps flowing. Let it be very thin, just make sure that it does not dry out completely". <...> for the rest of my life I remembered this phrase and an image of this Brook."

VYACHESLAV “Slava” POLUNIN (*1950) is a performance artist and clown — creator of the celebrated performance piece Slava’s Snowshow and founder of the Academy of Fools. Slava began the pantomime theater Licedei in the early 1980s (the word literally translates as “people who make faces”). The group operated for 20 years, staging such successful shows as Dreamers, From the Life of Insects, and Catastrophe, and organizing public events and carnivals that — during a time of strict control over artistic production in Russia — celebrated creative freedom. In the early ’90s, Slava created a new theater company whose show, Slava’s Snowshow, premiered in Moscow in 1993 and has toured continuously ever since. In early 2013, Polunin became artistic director of the oldest and biggest circus in Russia, The (Bolshoi) Saint-Petersburg State Circus.

For the first time made the light object in shape of crescent Moon to the installation for open space, traveled to different countries and continents including Russia, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Austria, France, Switzerland and the Arctic.

SOLOMON ROSSINE (*1937) was born in Gomel, Belarus. He is one of the prominent artist of Leningrad underground artistic movement. Solomon Rossine aspires to understand the drama of the Russian history of the 20th century as the reflection of the dark and tragic sides of the universe and its deep incomprehensible essence. A humiliated and suffering "little man" whose image frequently appears in the artist’s works is able to turn into the majestic or tragic hero. The sensation of anxiety conveys the emotional manner of painting, the contrast combinations of colours, deformations and displacements of forms. It is no mere chance that many of the presented works may be apprehended as the spiritual self-portraits of the master who reflects on the fate of a lonely and unprotected man in the huge world.

Solomon Rossin’s first verified exhibition was Rossin at Galerie du Dourven in Trédrez-Locquémeau in 1992, and the most recent exhibition was Echo of Expressionism at The State Russian Museum - Marble Palace in St. Petersburgin 2020. Solomon Rossin is most frequently exhibited in Russia, but also had exhibitions in United Kingdom, France.
