The Introspection serie depicts rather unorthodox lighthouses.  It raises the curtain for the dense choreography of juxtapositions and unusual viewpoints underpinning Miglena Savova’s most recent body of work.

They however reveal a uniform intention – making one conscious of the intimate act of observation. Looking out becomes looking in and although humans may be absent, the work is all about them, or rather us.

Framing is therefore so essential to these works. It carves out details, cuts reality into distinct pieces and freezes time and motion. The monumental all of a sudden appears attainable, thoughtfully divided in portions to be devoured. The hunger of the eye is insatiable, the mind’s capacity for comprehension becomes more and more elastic and yet there will always be an indigestible remainder.
