290310: Doroteya Petrova

Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf Doroteya Petrova 05.03.10 – 01.04.10 Small-sized It is rare that the depictions in the folder accompanying the exhibition are larger than the originals. And sure enough, the paintings by the young Bulgarian artist (born 1982) are not larger than ten or fifteen centimetres in height and width. But the works are only small-sized in a literal, but not in a metaphorical sense. Despite their pale shades of colour and their clearly contoured but never obvious form or shape, these tiny pieces of art radiate a huge effect – even if one stands at such a distance that makes it is impossible to recognize anything; this is undoubtedly due to their beautiful mattes and the remarkable hanging. The attention to detail is obvious. The artist uses delicate tones of white and only vaguely perceptible shadows. Without leaving the world of figurativeness, the works, made with Indian ink, pencil, coloured pencil and aquarelles, captivate through their quality as abstract compositions. Seemingly incidental objects such as leaves or clothing or nondescript delicate figures populate these paintings, which, in addition to their beauty – thanks to their fragment-like openness - also offer an impulse to a chain of ideas. One can only hope that Petrova’s art with its unbelievably unspectacular style will not be overlooked and receive the recognition it deserves.
