The idea of a joint exhibition was a chance result of some creative talks and work after graduating in metal art from the National Academy of Arts. The two artists decided that a joint presentation of two authors would be a real challenge and a sort of an experiment with the discovery of a common concept and the accent on the similarities and differences between them. Thus they arrived at the idea of Medals and Metals – an interesting insight into the inner world of the authors expressed through the multifaceted nature of metal.
The artists have been intrigued by the contrast resulting from the juxtaposition of the cast brass medal and the manufactured steel forms with other non-traditional materials. Another interesting aspect is the associative transition of one form into another and their mutual complementation regardless of their intrinsic difference.
Anastasia Andreeva presents a series of cast medals one of which called Real Unreality deconstructs the shapes of a well-known monument in Sofia in an extraordinary way. She also shows her newly constructed steel plastic pieces with optical details.
Nadia green displays cast medals in contrast with other materials and bigger formats.
