Rakursi Gallery presents the new canvases by Kaliya Kalacheva. The artist works mainly in the field of painting and perceives herself as an industrial painter. She gets inspired by architecture and big cities.
“The imaginary constructions are places that I have seen and that have settled deep within my subconscious. Now they are awaking and rising to the surface so they could slide over the canvases. Shining bright and ready to devour every colour, stifle it, or breathe life into it.
To this binary materialisation, I also added precious metals. They are not real, but their presence is eloquently convincing. At the same time glossy, but also a delusively unreal background to the constructions.
The exhibition is built up of landscapes and architectural collaborations between interior and exterior spaces. The sweet challenge I faced was to build a space on the base of these shiny sheets, a space that evokes a home.”
