Descrizione Opera / Biografia
Snezhina BiserovaArtist`s statementThe print `Natura Sacra II` is a part of series that consists of 12 works, each with size 76 x102 cm. Composition of `Natura Sacra II` is based on digitally created mirror symmetry of different selected and manipulated fragments of nature blended with various hand drawn textures. I use the visual transposition of positive and negative images. Mirror duplication of the graphic elements with their specific texture and perspective deformation of the space in two mutually perpendicular planes creates the feeling of suction inward, to a nonexistent central point – an internal Center of calm in which the dynamics and tensions are mute. The visual game with space gives rise to new codes, visual associations and suggestion for the sacral essence of Nature – a source of inner light. The graphic sheet `Natura Sacra II` represents a metaphor that expresses the duality and the unity of the Creation, manifested in all levels of our existence.The series is printed with high quality pigment inks on archival inkjet fine art paper Hahnemühle 300 g/m2.
