A few days before Valentine’s day, the 11th of February 2020, at the Roman Gallery LuxArt, via della Luce 28 (Trastevere), took place the opening party of « Australian Soul », a solo exhibition by the Swiss-Bulgarian artist Miglena Savova Auclair

 

The photographies featured in this exhibition pay tribute to the nature and the culture of the marvelous australian landscapes burnt by the fire. The artist is also a graphic designer. The pictures were taken one year ago during a trip to Australia, way before the current wildfires. Nonetheless, they capture the devastation caused by the blazes. Thus, the sunset becomes a forest raped in flames or a landscape full of bright trees transforms itself into black ashes. Animal portraits are like endangered icons. 

There were number of people from the roman cultural life present at this grand opening such as the journalist Barbara Castellani, the artist and miss Italia Elisabetta Viaggi, the RAI director Mauro Calandra, the stylist Gabriella Romeo, the artist Cristina Natale, the hairstylist Michele Spanò, the jewelers, Fina Scigliano and Giovanni Pallotta, the constructor Nicolò Corso, the lawyer Francesco Scardaccione and many more

The exhibition Australian Soul was organised by the curator Aneta Rinaldi and the artist Ilian Rachov. It will take place during the entire month of February.

She is an expert in different techniques such as painting, sculpture or the collage. Australia making the head news made her want to show pictures taken during her 2018 trip to Sydney and Melbourne. The exhibition is divided in three parts. The first part consists of pictures of nature, whether in movement or static, either abstract or realistic, that have the surprisingly effect of evoking current fires. Through the realism of her pictures, Miglena tries, most of all, the emotions she felt during her first encounter with the marvelous Australian landscapes. The second part presents Australian street art. The common thread is still the same, emotions. It is also a way for Miglena to acknowledge the value of local artists and the way they communicate their feelings, such as anger, happiness or love, through their artwork. Finally, the third part represents the artist favorite artistic topic, portraits. This time, no human beings represented but animals. Endangered animals that see their natural environment threaten by both natural disasters and urbanisation.

MIGLENA SAVOVA AUCLAIR ARTWORKS: Photography … has always been present in Miglena life. It is an important creative source of inspiration for many of her artworks. “Photography, as an artist, is not a mean by which to depicts the reality I see through the lenses of my camera. My goal is rather to capture the details and the abstract side of things. I do so not only through the various ways I take my pictures, but also through the subjects depicted in my photographies. To name a few, symbols, urban landscapes or poetic sceneries”. Painting Faces …They hold the traces of humankind history. A human face is not only socially expressive, but also historically significant, influential, memorable and always changing… Work on papers and digital art illustrations.

The faces …

They still carry traces of human history. The image of a person can be socially expressive, but also historically significant, influential, memorable, in changing order …

Drawing anonymous people can express a universal state of human emotions. The choice of the human face as a subject is caused by the interest of the artist Miglena Savova-Ackler for his personality and his reactions, our society being more and more standardized, very close to the descriptions of George Orwell in his novel 1984 .

The subject of people is an impromptu response to the social effect – a kind of disappointment in our time where there is an overproduction of autopies, and further highlights the growing loss of identity and identity, or, in other words, “… everything is very uninteresting. …”

The magic and depth of the face have always attracted Miglena as a pretext and object of creation. In the process of her work, she is distinguished by the contrasting color, but also by the enigmatic silence with accents of color, deliberate non-resonance and chaos, in search of the ultimate goal of harmony. To obtain the desired creative effect, the subject as a subject is scaled and strongly expressed, thus creating a significant influence and impact: watching, absorbing and provoking reflection in the viewer.
The expressiveness shows dynamics of colors that seem loose and seemingly shy. By saturation of colors, while designer Miglena Savova Auclaur explores the face, it is about the geography of identity, focusing on emotions. She skillfully captures the moments of the look that express this emotion. It’s a kind of exploration of the character’s state of mind, looking for his inner world.

 

Artist Miglena Savova Auclair discovers human face and resonance of soul

“Let’s Look” exhibition at Sofia Contemporary Art Gallery, Bulgaria

“Let’s look,” is a call that welcomes us to the exhibition of paintings by Miglena Savova-Auclair in Sofia. This is the first solo exhibition of the talented Bulgarian artist who has been living and working for many years in Geneva. Colors in her works are bright and provocative, images are large and expressive, carrying the general feeling of emotion created by living human communication.

We know talented names in fine arts usually get their voice through art critics. They say that faces in the works of Miglena Savova-Auclair give some kind of answer to contemporary disappointment, as in our times there is overproduction of selfie photos. Everything that comes in bulk leads to boredom and disappointment. As an artist, Miglena Savova explores the human face and recreates it using rich colors, emphasizing the role of the person as bearer of identity. Images that the artist creates are imaginary and nameless, but they show the living and real manifestations of the human soul.

“The magic and depth of the human face have always attracted Miglena. She tries to portray the universal state of human emotions. Faces always bear traces of the history of mankind and the picture of a person can be historical, memorable and influential to the audience.”

That is how the delighted viewer interprets universal messages of the exhibition initially shown in Geneva, which will be on display in Sofia until December 25th at the Contemporary Art Gallery at Budapest Street No2 in Sofia.

The “Let’s Look” exhibition is organized with the assistance of “So Close, So Far” Association and with the support of the State Agency for Bulgarians Abroad. “I present myself as a Bulgarian artist, despite the fact I have been living in Switzerland for more than 16 years,” Miglena says, and adds: “I specialized in the framework of a sculpture restoration project back in 2003, and then moved on to study Art History. I subsequently found my own atelier in Geneva. In recent years, I have been working on an art platform. It is something like an art agency, which includes the atelier for restoration and conservation of sculptures and artworks. In addition, this platform also includes an art school that focuses on adults and children. I’ve studied graphic design, but painting has been something that has always attracted me. I love color, contrast and provocations that emerge from color combinations. In this exhibition through prints of my paintings I somehow went back to graphics. In my opinion, contemporary artists should provoke the audience; focus on current issues, personal and social ones, because our role is to be some kind of enlighteners. If art failed to provoke, it could not be useful to people. I intentionally urge viewers to face the portraits, thus provoking them to look more often in the faces of others and this way we could get to know each other better.”

“Artists are cosmopolitan personalities and can live anywhere. Choosing the best place for yourself is not emigration, it is a search for expression,” Miglena Savova-Auclair says.

“The exhibition provoked interest even before it was opened,” curator Tsvetelina Rusalieva says, adding: “Miglena and I have recently started to known each other, but we have been working with artists living abroad, in order to introduce them to Bulgaria. We have planned several joint projects for the future. In Miglena Savova’s gallery in Geneva an exhibition of works by Bulgarian artists will take place. This is the first step towards an important and fruitful cooperation so that we can reach a wider audience and also help each other as we are Bulgarians after all.”

The faces …
They always wear the traces of human history. A picture of a face  can be socially expressive, but it can also be historically significant, influential, memorable, changing order …

By drawing anonymous people it is the universality of human emotions that are expressed. The choice of human faces as a topic is influenced by the interest of the artist, Miglena Savova Auclair, her personality and reactions to increasing standardisation of our society, very close to the descriptions in George Orwell’s novel 1984.

The subject of the human face is an impromptu response to the social effect – a kind of disappointment of the time we live in when there is an overproduction of selfies. It emphasizes the growing loss of identity and indivuality or in other words, “… a lot of everything quickly becomes boring … ”.

The magic and depth of a face have always attracted Miglena as a pretext and object of creation. Her process of work stands out due to the contrasting colours, but also due to the enigmatic mutedness of colour accents, deliberate non-resonance and chaos, seeking the ultimate goal of harmony. To achieve the desired creative effect, the face as a subject is scaled and strongly expressed, thus creating a significant influence and impact – to look self-absorb and to provoke reflection for the viewer.

The colour dynamics are expressively portrayed and appear free and free-spirited.  As a creator and through colour saturation Miglena Savova Auclair explores the face. It is the geography of identity, with an emphasis on emotions. She skillfully captures the moments of the gaze that expresses this emotion and it is a kind of exploration of the character’s state of mind, in search of his inner world.

Gestures are a game on the boundary between incompleteness and conscious control. It is the way  creative magic works, provoking the life on the canvas to emerge and to live.

The smokers of cigars…
Smoking is also a social act and an element of communication, interaction and provocation. The cigar in itself is an aristocratic, reactionary, macho and epicurean symbol. It is a symbol for luxury. The cigars’ producers are dedicated, they give emotions and their life to the cigars. Cigars leave their mark on their creators and this is recreated on the faces of the consumers. Indirectly related to the plot is the act of smoking, which has been perceived in different cultures and communities as divine, but also as devilish and vicious.

The smoker’s image changes according to geography, culture and time. That is why the concept of the exhibition Let’s Look is in search of sealing those people who bring the spirit of time and space, as well as the emotion of a characteristic social act – smoking with communication.

Exhibition “Look at me II”

Solo Exhibition, Look at me, 7 .04. – 16.06.2017,  BlitzArt Portrait space, Geneva, Switzerlandexhibition look at me

A series of portraits that will take you on the roads of the unexpected.

The artist Miglena Savova invites you to follow her in her universe of lines, curves and colors; in his instinctive, sincere and honest interpretation of moments in life that concern us and affect us in different ways depending on our degree of involvement.
The artist presents to you, in large format, “cigar smokers”; this aristocrat, reactionary, macho and epicurean symbol at the same time. Here told with skill and finesse in a burst of colors. Works to be tasted under the amused gaze of mysterious passionate enthusiasts …
Thierry Auclair 2017

Miglena Savova was born in Bulgaria where she studied for many years. Attracted by the portrait, she practiced this art in all its variations. Arrived in Geneva in 2003, she perfected her art to express her creative force. From collage to photo and from abstract expression to academic drawing, she approaches all artistic forms. His vision of reality through light in his works frees colors and celebrates life in spite of everything.

This insubordination to suffering, we perceive it in these “cigar smokers” represented here by large paintings whose colors seem to flow constantly, like life. Miglena thus rediscovers her passion for portraiture and takes us to Cuba whose symbol is this time magnified. In this explosion of colors where sometimes ironic looks suggest to us that it is sometimes good to think only of yourself, for a moment.
