Naum Medovoy is concerned with the inner world of perception and emotion; he is equally concerned with the politics of the outer world; his work, often combining expressive, even sentimental depiction with the “hard fact” of document and chronicle, brings the intimate and the worldly together in a unified art. Among the formal elements of Medovoy’s art, line predominates over volume and plane. His works are fleshed out by those colored contours, the rest being subtly suggested by the outlined spaces. The varying texture of the brushstrokes speaks now of speed, now of solidity, controlling the dynamism of the evoked form.
Naum Medovoy is a contemporary expressionist: the lines that just barely suggest forms in his works translate, closely tuned, the notes and timbres of chosen emotional states. Working within the expressionist tradition, he has developed his own language of sign and sense.
