SYMBOLIC WHIRLS OF MEDITATIVE HUES

Alexander Kaprichev’s oeuvre satisfies the finest art lovers: remarkable compositions gracefully combine illusory scenarios and poetical representation in an intense and emblematic optical dance of shades. 

Every brushstroke captures light, culminating in a faceted and composite pallet reminiscent of the neo-impressionist Ludvig Karsten. Similarly, Kaprichev’s works on canvas recall the innermost sensations inspired in man, giving the observer an intense and deep perspective into the innermost recesses of the soul.

Complementary and analogous chromatisms adorn Kaprichev’s pictorial forms, donating an almost mystical touch to his elongated figures that radiate sublime grace and poetic delicacy.

The great brilliance and depth of colour highlights the gestural, vibrant and hatching brushstrokes that stimulate our senses consequently completely overwhelmed by the harmony and beauty of Kaprichev’s emotional communication. In fact, his artworks govern an unconventional universe consisting of lost forgotten souls from ancients novels.

Angelical figures appear to meander on the pictorial surface with an unforgettable grace and lyricism. Contrasting affections surge in the observer: placidity, nostalgia, joy, impetuosity, apprehension and warmth. Kaprichev deliberately invites us to surrender to the rhythm of universal emotions he interprets with such amiable ability, shaping a new world with such clarity and intellectual integrity.

Alberto Giacometti stated: “The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.” Kaprichev was a worthy heir to the Great Masters and a lasting legacy to future generations.
