This work continues the visual aesthetics of my Fire series with a strong chartreuse yellow/green underpainting with warm glazes, revealing deep burning hues of background flames. A reminisce of a fire bird and the life cycle, birth, death and again re-birth, is a focal point in the series.
It is also a continuation of my “Galactic” work and explores further the subject of us as galactic beings, currently situated in this world. We all possess the ability to see beyond the physical matter if we turn to ourselves and see our inner universe. I am using a glittery and textured black paint for the structures behind the body, which remind me of galaxy gateway.
The focal point of the work is centralized head piece with multiple gold coins and gold as the predominant colour throughout the painting, symbolising the energy of the gold itself and the third eye.
For this work I am using traditional Bulgarian motives, fused with elements from different cultures. The geometric design around the background is inspired by a folk costume from North Macedonia, which again symbolizes multiple incarnations.
