BAGRA RESIN CREATIONS: NATURE MEETS ART


With Stefka Doncheva's decorative panels the beauty of minerals becomes part of the interior

BAGRA resin art 10.jpg

A never ending play of the imagination that creates in the mind unreal, magical and mesmerising landscapes: each of BAGRA decorative panels embodies a new world. Their creator, Stefka Doncheva, skillfully uses natural materials, textures, shapes and colours, and reflects them through a synthetic material, epoxy resin, to materialise impressive and unique objects of art.

Why did you choose epoxy resin as your main artistic means?

Epoxy resin provides many opportunities to create contemporary interior solutions and decorations. Initially, it is liquid and can take many shapes and combinations with colours and materials. At the same time, it is often unpredictable; there is always an element of surprise. The final result is always impressive because after the resin has hardened, it becomes shiny as glass. It was this shine that impressed me when I saw art pieces of epoxy resin for the first time.

What inspires you as an artist?

Nature with all of its colours, shapes and pictures. It is exactly what I want to recreate in my decorative panels. Most of the materials that I use – minerals, sand, stones, are also natural. In our digital era and world of concrete we increasingly need such connections. This is also the main idea of my art – to use contemporary art in order to create the feel of nature in a way that corresponds to our times.

What is the most exciting commission that you have received?

Each commission is exciting, from the Christmas tree ornament to the coffee table. The most exciting of these happened recently – it is the largest decorative panel I have ever made. The size, 100x200 cm, made the tasks simultaneously exciting and challenging. The clients had liked the panel during a visit to my exhibition, Alchemy of Nature, and asked for it but in bigger size. Today, this art piece is in the office of one of Bulgaria's largest companies.

BAGRA: Природата среща изкуството

Непрестанна игра на въображението, създаващо в съзнанието нереални, магически и пленяващи пейзажи – всяко от декоративните пана на BAGRA въплъщава един нов свят. Създателката им Стефка Дончева умело използва природни материали, текстури, форми и цветове, и ги пречупва през един синтетичен материал – епоксидната смола, за да сътвори впечатляващи и неповторими произведения на изкуството.

Защо избрахте епоксидната смола като основно изразно средство?

Eпоксидната смола дава много възможности за създаване на съвременни интериорни решения и декорации. В първоначалния си вид е течна, което позволява да се постигнат различни форми и комбинации с цветове и материали. В същото време често е непредсказуема и елементът на изненада често присъства. Финалният резултат винаги е впечатляващ заради огледалния блясък, който се получава при втвърдяването. Именно този блясък впечатли и мен, когато за първи път видях произведения от епоксидна смола.

Какво Ви вдъхновява като творец?

Природата с всичките ѝ цветове, форми и картини. Именно тях се опитвам да пресъздам в моите декоративни пана. Повечето от материалите, които използвам – минерали, пясък, камъни, също са естествени. В нашата дигитална епоха и бетонен свят все повече се нуждаем от  връзка с нея. Това е и основната идея на моето творчество – чрез съвременното изкуство да създам усещането за естественост и хармония по начин, кореспондиращ на времето, в което живеем.

Коя е най-вълнуващата поръчка, която сте получавали?

Всяка поръчка е вълнуваща, от играчката за елха до масичката за кафе. Най-вълнуващата си поръчка получих наскоро – тя е най-голямото декоративно пано, което съм изработвала до сега. Размерът от 100х200 см направи работата едновременно вълнуваща и предизвикателна. Клиентите бяха харесали паното при посещение на изложбата ми "Алхимия на природата" и го поискаха в по-голям размер. Днес тази творба краси офиса на една от най-големите компании в България.
