until 13 November 2014
Since 13 October, Loran Art Gallery presents the "The Way," a new cycle of drawings by the noted Bulgarian artist Prof. Nikolay Maystorov. These works of art interpret the Four Gospels by the apostles Luke, Matthew, Mark and John, but they are not mere illustrations of the text. They paraphrase the traditional Biblical image system - following the story of the Christ's Way to Golgotha, Prof. Maystorov reveals the reincarnations of Man enlightened by God's wisdom.
The Last Supper, Matthew
The accent is on the human in the idea of the Son of God - only by going all of the predestined Way, which is dotted with suffering and compassion to the "poor in spirit," can Christ achieve divinity. Prof. Maystorov says, that drawing was a spontaneous intuitive beginning as the most adequately expression of what the text implied to the reader. The author's trademark expressive language is a projection of this intuition, an unaltered provocation to the consciousness and the senses of the viewer.
