It's hard to write an introductory text to my upcoming exhibition where the paintings are scattered in several rooms of my house. Somehow I miss the exhibition mirror in which I dream to look around and realize that this will be possible when the exposure is installed in the space of the gallery - bookstore Sofia Press during the month of November 2016 in Sofia.

"The dimension is a challenge. Its empathy is inspiration and exaltation of forms and reflections.
In the eye of the lens the stone quarries looked like summary and symbol. The monochrome and compositions were endless stimulus for future experiments and plastic solutions. Their picturesque interpretation became somewhat natural in character suggestion for an abstract image.

When one attempts to describe and metaphorically interpret the elements of Elisabeth Heindl’s spatial installations, concepts quickly come to mind that have been determinative for her entire artistic oeuvre since her student years at the Academy of Visual Arts in Munich (1980-86). Not coincidentally, these notions are congruent with ideas that could essentially characterize the two revolutions in Western art, i.e. the Renaissance and the revolt of modernism at the beginning of the 20th century.
Constitutive for the art of the Renaissance were the discovery or rediscovery of space in painting and drawing, and the ensuing correspondence between interior and exterior spaces in two-dimensional and relief-like pictures. The invention of correct, centrally perspectival construction of spaces accompanied and embodied a new treatment, a reflective occupation with space, and it evolved along with new ways of depicting movement. Of course, this is not to say that movement had never before been depicted; but when one compares artworks by Mathias Grünewald, Titian or Caravaggio with earlier attempts to portray motion in still images, it soon becomes obvious that the stronger dynamism and dramatic intensification which occurred here were without counterparts in the art of the Middle Ages. The principal flourishing of formed and formalized representations of movements and traces of movement began much later, i.e. in the modern era. And it is here, in the interval that we now describe as the classical modern period, that Elisabeth Heindl’s artworks have their intellectual and formal roots.

"I want to invite you on a walk around the various parts of the world that have captured me; not only for their beauty, but mostly with the humanity they carry!
Nelly Gasharova graduated the The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, majoring in interior design.

I continually draw strength from those rootsр in my head I am constantly changing the views of a beautiful scenery - decked hills, covered with bloom in spring fruit trees, picturesque gardens with colorful flowers and real vegetables, barking yard dogs, sweltering summers when all rush to the beach a breath of chill waters of the Danube. There are other senses, taste is another smell, the sounds, the colors… everything is real... In the exhibition there are paintings painted there - on the spot and others made here in the studio, in moments when the mind run away from the hectic, noisy, not so friendly and busy big city.
In this exhibition I share these feelings and emotions. I hope they will reach the viewer, the man.
Opening - 22nd of February, 6 - 8 p.m.
