TRENDAFILA TRENDAFILOVA

We present the work of Trendafila Trendafilova, an artist that is able, with a few brushstrokes, to evoke a Picassian, childish style of rare power. Trendafilova chooses the simplest subject of everyday life where even a portrait looks like a lifeless doll-like individual, made more so by the thick layers of paint on a particularly meteoric canvas. We can see she studied Mondrian, Modigliani, Braque and most of the Eastern European painters of post war era. Colors and shapes are muscular and seem to explode from the canvas’ natural borders, all in a bi-dimensional representation that flats down reality into a postcard of emotions. All this energy and power is hard to achieve and unusual nowadays, also for the humble approach to an already beaten path of modern art. Not the usual new for the sake of new, but a re-painting of classic, partly unconsumed, contemporary art.
