Closing: November 4, 6 p.m., with a lecture on "Principles of fragmentation and mosaics in the art of the sculptor Lubomir Dalchev"
The exhibition presents the new artworks by the artist Ognyan Hristov - wall sculptures, mosaics. The works are created especially for the event, each of them revealing different abstract landscapes, color harmonies and remarkable overall compositional details, moments in time. Ognyan Hristov's style has often been compared to the concepts of postmodernism and neoclassicism. His geometric precision in the field of the wall mosaic and unique taste for details and colors make his artistic work both remarkable and precise.
"The whole unites in itself different essences. Each part is dependent on the others, each separate element of the whole carries its meaning and gives its diversity. Everything has a certain life after which it must be transformed into another. When the whole is destroyed, its parts go into a state of readiness for a new one. In themselves, these fragments of the past are the fragments of the future. Change is conditional and always under the influence of the idea that determines the meaning. It is the idea that creates the new reality - a reality ready for life and an endless series of transformations in which the small accumulates knowledge, in which the single builds the whole and acquires meaning, realizing itself as a fragment of life and a form of existence in the great mosaic. "
