INFINITY, watercolour exhibition, Varna 5 - 19 July 2019 Zikovska Gallery

azzzzaaWith the breath of summer  you will also experience "The Spirit Watercolor", with the II International Triennial of Watercolor, Varna 2019, which will reign on the ART SCENE in our Summer Capital.

Watercolour lets artists share spontaneous emotions, thoughts and reveries straight onto the paper which is somehow conveyed to the spectators.

 INFINITY, Alexander Kaprichev’s watercolours, exhibited for the first time, will involve art lovers in enjoying the ethereal atmosphere they create. Gallery Theresa Zikovska hosts the event, affiliated to the 2nd International Triennial of Watercolor in Varna from 5th to 19th July 2019.

Created in the UK, in the period 1999-2005, when the artist had the opportunity to immerse himself in a different and rich artistic atmosphere, the watercolours mirror, according to art critics, one of  the artist’s most mature and significant period.

 Here is what some of the art critics wrote:

“Kaprichev skilfully balanced improvisation with scrupulous precision availing of elegant, ethereal and multifaceted palette, albeit with the colours that are frequently audacious and highly expressive, in an inexhaustible alteration of divergence.

Ergo, Kaprichev’s paintings become mirror of the artist subconscious, a cryptic nook where the spontaneity of evocative brushwork integrates with a thoughtful compositional structure. Thus, the spectator is absorbed by contemplative paintings enhanced with perspective, depth and glimpses of exquisite technical mastery.

Twimothy Warrington, ICAC, London 2017

“The late watercolours are lyrical, created with a light wash of paint. Here and there spontaneous lines appear, with brush strokes and plastic emphasis. The energies, the powers of attraction and retraction to which he gives free expression, as a kind of typological analogy, contain a touch of Vassily Kandinsky’s pictorial world. In some parts the artist leaves the message to the uneven surface and the coarse paper, to the sheet of paper on which the watercolour was placed.” 

Prof.Chavdar Popov PhD

“Among the watercolour work, Alexander features abstract interpretations of magical surroundings and a distinctive set of symbols capable of capturing subtle expressions with just a few lines. He explores his inner thoughts through colours and forms, creating compositions characterised by a timeless and unique elegance.”

Elena Foschi, Art critic, London 2018

Preview: Land of Roses | Bulgarian Art
9th January 2018 

Paintings from the Collection of the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs On the occasion of Bulgaria’s EU Presidency, its embassy in London and the 12 Star Gallery present an exhibition of 20th century Bulgarian art, predominantly from the collection of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The exhibition will showcase works by leading Bulgarian painters, figurative and abstract, stretching over a time period that covers the last 50 years. These will include: David Peretz (1906-1982); Genko Genkov (1923-2006); Georgi Baev (1924-2007); Elza Goeva (b. 1928); Encho Pironkov (b. 1932); Nikola Manev (b. 1940); Suli Seferov (b. 1943); Alexander Kaprichev (1945-2008), and Vasil Stoev (b. 1950). This is, indeed, a miniature part of what our artists have produced throughout time, but it has been very carefully selected, with the ambition to make the viewers feel the spirit of “The Land of Roses” on canvas. This exhibition, while small in terms of the number of the presented works, is quite impressive with its discrete and, at the same time, clear message. It aims to convey the story of the work of the Bulgarian painters from the last five decades with their skills, emotion, talent, and heart. The preview was followed by a concert to launch Bulgaria's Presidency of the EU Council at St John's Smith Square (9/1/2018) with the Wladigeroff Brothers and featuring The London Bulgarian Choir led by Dessislava Stefanova. Organised by the Embassy of Bulgaria
