The Bulgarian artist Christo Christov exhibits his work in The Hague in April
Christo Christov, a well-known artist from Varna, Bulgaria (http://www.christochristov.com/) is showing his work in The Hague.
From 2nd of April till 18th of April eight of his paintings are being exhibited in the Aandachtscentrum in The Hague http://www.aandachtscentrumdenhaag.nl/. Later this year, from November till January, the Aandachtscentrum will host more of his work, which until then will be kept in The Hague.
Before coming to The Hague, 70 works of his paintings, drawings and sculptures have been shown in the Center for Benedictine Spirituality to the monastery ‘Abdij van Egmond; Sint-Adelbertabdij’ in Egmond aan Zee, with big success!
The themes of Christo Chrsitov’s work encompass Bulgarian traditions and Christian symbolism. Very often Greek mythology is part of the rich heritage that connects Bulgarians to that past.
The binding theme of the works now exhibited is the Road, the road marked by the Cross and the Resurrection. The Christian themes are mostly present as a personal revelation, reached by the experience of the ‘cross’.
The Christian sensitivity, but also the pagan primal forces are often present in the compositions of Christov.
His paintings are monumental in their story lines and in their color relations, messages and effects, whose vitality is to be sensed in many of them (to name a few: ‘Silence’, ‘Flight’, ‘Lonely Coasts’, and especially ‘The Road ‘and ‘Feeling of Flight’).
His sculptures are most poetic. You will discover this in ‘Flight’, in ‘Equilibrium’, in ‘Everyone Has His Own Horse’, ‘One, Two, Three… One, Two, Three’, and in most of the others: ‘Orpheus’, ‘Prayer’.
For ‘ArtNovinite.com’ Christo Christov shares his thoughts: ‘Sculpture work is poetry! A sad, ecstatic, expressive, distinguished…’ Pure and sincere!
For all the visitors of the work of Christov – his poetic messages are there, waiting for you!
