Period:  16th of September – 17th of October, 2020
Vernissage :  16th of September,2020 (Wednesday) from 5 PM to 8 PM

Art Gallery Serdica presents the exhibition ” Gravitational Push ” – the latest oil painting and drawing works by Delya Chausheva, which will be held from the 16th of September to the 17th of October 2020 in the art space of Zhenski Pazar Market. 

In Art Gallery Serdica, the audience will be able to see large-format oil paintings, pastel and charcoal paintings, which reveal to the audience an unsuspected world of abstract shapes and enigmatic spaces created by the artist and inspired by the wonders of the Universe, which Delya Chausheva chooses to call ” Gravitational Push”, and the title of the series of drawings is” Traveling in the shadows “. 

Delya Chausheva has been working in the field of abstract painting for many years, eventually building her own recognizable and sustainable handwriting. Her art education is marked by two important names in Polish art – she graduated in Painting with Prof.  Jerzy Nowoszielski at the Jan Matejko Academy of Arts in Krakow , and as a second major in Graphics with Professors Weimann and Bush. This determines her more specific and cosmopolitan attitude to the problems of abstract painting and their visual realization. Delya Chausheva has many exhibitions in the country and abroad, she has won national and international awards.

Art critic Dr. Stefania Yanakieva says of the author: “ Abstract painting is considered one of the purest forms of expression, as it allows the artist to communicate freely visually, without being limited by the forms existing in objective reality. It is this freedom of communication that Delya Chausheva offers us. Through her paintings, she shares with us her vision or her illusion about Life and the Universe – an endless cycle of dust specks and giants that is cut by the unexpected, such as the gravitational impulse that completely changes the existence of a comet. It is in this moment of conflict, of coming out of the banal and monotonous, of the sudden blow, which suddenly disrupts the everyday life and completely changes it, that the author is most interested in and she recreates it through her specific expressive language. The smooth, monochrome picture field is permeated by spatial structures resembling broken glass or broken ice mass, however not transparent, but solved in saturated provocative color combinations – red, violet, green, blue … Light, transparent, smoothly applied tones are in conflict with bright accents or dark formations achieved by the accumulation of oil paint. Her compositional solutions are unexpected and challenging, turn the space upside down, experiment with our senses, forcing us to look for non-standard solutions for their perception and meaning. ”  

About her work with coal, Delya Chausheva shares that this is her passion. “It’s a strong material, mystical, and to master it you need great experience. My new drawings are an emotion, an irresistible dream . In some of them you can see a very well-mastered technique, while others seem at first glance as a quick sketch. But this is far from the case. Behind these works there is also a long process of reflection and experimentation, but there the impression of spontaneity prevails … Painting with charcoal and black pastel unlocks in me emotions that come out on their own. It’s as if this material was created for me and I have no idea where lies the thin line is between painting and graphics. ” , says Delya Chausheva.

The artist uses the traditional painting material – oil, to create compositions in which the graphic principle is leading.
However, what makes Delya Chausheva’s works so influential and memorable, shares again Dr. Stefania Yanakieva: ” I think that their main quality is that they manage to open the door of our imagination, giving us the freedom to perceive and interpret them according to our own individuality and sensitivity. They manage to unlock our imagination and awaken our desire to see new unknown worlds, as well as to look at our familiar world in a new, different way .
