The presented paintings were created specifically for this exhibition. The selected title - "interior and exterior" gives me freedom and a way to outline the directions on that work - space, color sense, the transformation of nature into abstraction. It aims to show the path of de-contextualization of the real object to its nominal essence. Interior and exterior - that's all that surrounds us.

The sculpture exhibition of Kosio Minchev in "Raiko Alexiev" Gallery is called "Coarse", which in English means: rough, uncouth, rough, raw, rough, coarse, crude, rude, vulgar, and even obscene. Perhaps the author has not translated the title only because he couldn’t find the exact equivalent of what he wants to share with the audience. But it is obvious that this exhibition is neither clumsy nor even less vulgar. We should really be radical literalists to catch this apparent author "discourtesy". Surely, however, this issue stance for refined way of thinking that is not random and this sculpture may seem rough, but above its surface appears inevitable question of why this is so.
