Boryana Korcheva

 
 

Continuing a tradition of expressive figurative painting starting from Michelangelo, to Caravaggio, Gericault and Lucien Freud, Boryana Korcheva places the viewer in a metaphorical ‘outer space’ from where the world looks like an entanglement of anthropomorphic or manmade shapes floating aimlessly in the void, where the time to move the eye from one frame to the next is the difference between being and not being.

Boryana Korcheva’s visual language is imposing, imperative, even aggressive – this is not an invitation to quiet contemplation, but abduction to a place where the only option is to face reality, the point in space and time, where we cannot look the other way, as there is no other way to look.

Equally cerebral and emotionally charged, Korcheva’s work is concerned with the idea that while humanity is absorbed in political, material and interpersonal squabbles, the planet is coming perilously close to the limit of its resources. That we, with all our possessions, ambitions, passions and complications, are nothing more than a grain of dust, a blink in god’s eye. It is an appeal to shift from our small minded point of view and re-define our values from a cosmic perspective.
