Artist statement
“The painting “Pieces III” is part of the series called “Pieces”. Here is part of the concept:the working title of the series was "Everything" but everything broke into a thousand pieces and this became the more logical title. Then I broke, not literally, but naturally, as for all young people who constantly spill themselves.
You break wherever you find! You quite crack, tear to pieces, spread whenever and wherever it happens. Chance. No. A must. Everything gathers in your head and spills into pieces. Delicately, studiously until dawn, you are busy sticking pieces of the old world into the new world just hatched, one newly built body.” Education
National Academy of Arts, Sofia, Bulgaria, Master Degree.
