RECYCLE YOURSELF – RENEWAL, RECOVERY
What does this exhibition represent? What is the thought developed through it? What is the energy of the image? Why things are done exaclty in this way? Those and many other questions are contained in the exhibition of Liana Dimitrova, The problem is that the answers which would have followed these questions are hard and bring even more questions. The truth about the pictures of Liana Dimitrova penetrates through the energy in which they are created. The image in most cases is abstract, but even the most abstract form leads to an analogy with reality, with spirituality, with the philosophy that is contained in this exhibiton.
Liana Dimitrova is definitely an artist, who clears out her works conceptually before starting their creation. Therefore her works are expressive and as if the plastics follow some introductory energy, which should be the basis of the world that the author builds. Renewal, recreation, rediscovery, stages, foundations, even resurrection are suitable metaphors for her works. Their initial organizationwas around the concept of recycling. A concept clear enough, but also too related to technique for the vulcanic energy characteristic to most of them. I think whatever name we choose will limit in its definitions this exhibition. It is concentrated on an internal motive, which is emotional and hearty and which moves the hand of the artist. Even in some of her figurtive works (since the exhibition mainly represents abstractions) the whole plastics is felt rather than the organizig figurative accent. The exhibition of Liana Dimitrova is of that type of phenomena, which raise us against her being, but also against the being of contemoprary art, of the search of the generation and the ways that can be delienated. In this sense, the exhibition presents personal characteristics, as well as a kind of creating theory for our problems today. Therefore the next steps of the artist fill us with expectations and charming suspense.
