Nice & Fit. Paintings and a series of ink jet prints and drawings
Two distinct bodies of work by Bulgarian born artist: an exhibition of panel paintings in the main gallery and a series of ink jet prints and drawings in the Showroom. Directly referencing Byzantine icons by employing traditional materials (wood from his native Sofia, gold) he also insists on stylistic similarities such as flat silhouettes against golden backgrounds, unbroken contours. The use of this outmoded style reveals an interest in sub-cultures: religious, and sexual, or more broadly, an interest in rituals, dress codes and signs that delineate practices, obsessions and attachments to objects.
