    "In a polyphonic chorus of harmoniously laid out and expressively scattered cards, behind each testing his fate, appears a figure of a deeply lonely person. [Nemukhin's] paintings from the 1980s are often completely white. They are devoid of expression. Lines, rhythmic cuts, spots mirroring the shape of a card, and the card itself are arranged by the artist in the space of the painting identified with the surface of the card table, with almost mathematical precision. These works astound with the perfection of their execution, and shock the admirers of Nemukhin's expressive gesture." - Galina Manevich, "The Solitaire of Vladimir Nemukhin," in A. Ushakov ed., Vladimir Nemukhin: Painting, Graphic Works, Sculpture, Porcelain, Moscow, 2012, p. 347.
