“Fire follow me”
2 – 25 November 2023
“Fire, Follow Me” is a pursuit of balance through consciousness of purification. A symbol of this is fire, which is also a metaphor for love. The characters depicted are in absolute symbiosis, but they can be mistaken as experiencing pain and sadness The artist enjoys the tension created in this way, enhanced by the sharp color contrast, the work with the texture and the plasticity of the paint. The figures engulfed in flames recreate the degree of emotion and degree of the moment…/ Yana Bratanova/
„Before all this sincere and burning love, the characters in the paintings were lonely seekers of love, attention and attraction. In the “relationships” series (post CO-Vid period) I was looking for the relationship and communication between two lovers. The characters became entangled in different narratives that drew all the energy of the “relationship” series. One after another, the characters changed their visual character and tried to free themselves from some shackles, perhaps shackles of themselves, shackles of everyday life, shackles of violent and unrequited love.
The figures constantly change their dominance, but always perform some kind of love ritual.
Fire, follow me is a mantra, a wish, that I want to stay forever inside me and never leave. This feeling, this fire, makes you alive, fearless, risk and fly.
