Show ran from 4/1/2011 to 4/23/2011

EARTH AND FIRE   mixed media

Opening Reception:  Friday, April 1, 6-9PM

Kina Bagovska’s new exhibition, “Earth and Fire,” seeks to explore and understand the relationship of the female figure to those created in ancient Bulgarian civilization. Ancient peoples have long made statuettes as metaphoric references to creation. Earth is an expression of the female spirit and Fire refers to male power. Both are part of the nature of humankind.??She draws and paints diverse body shapes which allude to the shape of excavated figurines but exceed their original size. Bagovska continually searches for translucency using graphic lines from the first layer as reflections of light in order to reveal movement and depth in space.
