Sculpture

November 18th - December 6th 2019

On November 18, 2019, at Stubel Gallery, Georgi Marinov will open his latest solo exhibition, titled simply “Sculpture”. The exposition presents three cycles, explored by the artist over many years, focused on themes that are unified by the idea of the fragmentation of life. “Working with the stone, there was no way to avoid being influenced by the imposing fragmentation of our present – a present focused on a defined part of the whole, of the common, hinting at the constructive, but failing to provide enough clarity,” shares Georgi Marinov.

The first cycle, “Fallen Angels,” was conceived a long time ago, but until recently, the idea lived only in sketches. The upcoming exhibition prompted Marinov to sculpt it in material. “The difficulty for me was not in the positive ending of the biblical parable, but in the volatility of human nature”, states the artist.

Georgi Marinov has worked on the cycle “Warriors” for almost 20 years. The artist perceives of a warrior not as a soldier, a fighter, a physical force, but as the warrior inside each of us. The warrior as an expression of overcoming obstacles in the fight against ourselves.

“Debris of Time” is the third cycle that the sculptor has explored for many years. “I try to observe, to explore the accumulation of civilizations as history and as art through different fragmentary associations of the lens of the present,” explains his intent Georgi Marinov.

The exposition consists of 12 sculptures in stone and 12 drawings, created in the span of the last twelve months.
