A solo exhibition featuring new paintings and sculptures by Iva Gueorguieva opens 5 February 2016 and is on view through 14 March 2016. The opening reception is 5 February 2016 from 7:30 - 9 pm.
Gueorguieva is a versatile artist who explores the different, yet interwoven terrains of painting and sculpture. "For me painting is a productive/destructive encounter with space, time, and material. I construct illusionistic spaces and then destroy them by means of collage. I move freely from paper to canvas, cardboard, metal, concrete and clay. I cut and collage hand-painted materials as well as images produced in the print-making studio using various techniques including soap ground etching, cyanotype, photo gravure and woodcut. For me the act of painting is a way of stitching, juxtaposing, overlapping, reiterating, remembering, and erasing multiple phrases, stories, memories, and impressions. Painting for me is bearing witness, to many or all things, and also to the very process of painting.”
