In his series "Twelve Months" life is harmonious, depicted in
In the painting entitled "Everybody carries his cross" - life consist
of a tragic moral searching and suffering, something that everyone experiences to a
greater of lesser degree.
In 1995-97 Vystropov took part in two major art projects. The first of them was in
Furstenhagen Church, near Berlin , where there has been extensive reconstruction work
over the last three years. Vystropov designed the
seventeen stained-glass windows for
this church. Scenes from Old and New Testament are depicted in all these windows. But
there is also another way of looking at these scenes: laconically and tragically.
The second project is connected with the opening of the Rhein-Main Theatre near
Weisbaden . Since December 1995 the theatre has been showing the new Andrew Lloyd Webber
Musical "Sunset Boulevard" . Vystropov has created
four large paintings ( 2 x 3.5 m )
devoted to this famous musical. They are about the myths of our times and have been
installed in the foyer of the theatre. In addition to these major projects, Andrey
Vystropov has constantly been creating new pictures. Each of them is a search and
a discovery, the essence and the meaning of the artist's life.

with Internet - but likes to read our guestbook and
