MEETING POINT Samuil Stoyanov Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
18 December 2003 - 15 January 2004
Opposite or complementing, incompatible or logically interrelated are the paintings in this exhibition? The fact that on one canvas two formally anonymous images are situated does not always mean that they do not have a unified logic. “Vecherni novini” (“The Evening News”) contradicts one “accidentally caught frame” from the street traffic to another “accidentally caught frame” from the news of the Katar television. But maybe nothing is accidental. Under what logic “Rocko and Rock” combine the portrait of a Bulgarian boy and American actor? The narrative of the works is apparent, but there are many alternative possibilities for new “reading” and interpretations, which increase with each subsequent look. Maybe the laconic contradiction of formal values in a “Picture without a name” is far less definite.

EMILIA PANAYOTOVA Painting
09 April 2003 - 20 April 2003
The paintings of Emiliya Panayotova can be defined as both as landscapes and abstract works. The viewer can discover hints for nature but also worlds different than the real one. According to the painter, ‘landscape in painting is probably the most attractive expressive means’. The basic origins such as air and water can be traced in each canvass. The feeling of vastness or restlessness implies the different conditions of the spirit and provocations of the mental. In these pieces of nature could be found feelings, moods, existential dilemmas that can hardly found an answer or do not find such at all. The common linking point is found in the idea of endlessness, despite the reoccurrence of the separate happening in nature and its projection in the infinity of the universe.
