Exhibition “The Look of Silence”

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.

Exhibition Lighthouse 2015 WIPO Geneva
Exhibition Lighthouse of Miglena Savova Auclair November 13th. to 28th. 2015  World Inrellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Geneva

 

A rather unorthodox lighthouse with bright radiant colours sets the scene. Cheerful and yet detached, it raises the curtain for the dense choreography of juxtapositions and unusual viewpoints underpinning Miglena Savova’s most recent body of work.

Bright and energetic compositions change with melancholic scenes, daydreams give way to edgy moods, motion freezes and goes upbeat again. The paintings shape up a tightly packed psychological space, which opens up boldly in an exhibitionist manner and then narrows down requiring the viewer to peep through the imaginary windows and openings the picture plane frames. As diverse as her subjects are a merry – go – round, a patch of greenish water, birds in a stormy sky, or a window of a countryside house, 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.

Streams of thought, recurrence of imagery, recycling of techniques and media transgressions connect these new paintings to some of the artist’s previous work, as if to provide hints about where her inquiries come from. Seeing and making sense is always remaking of reality, as in the six signature portraits of women dressed up in distinct national costumes. Old archival photographs have been deconstructed in painting with colors disintegrated – neither natural, nor artificial. Identity is always under construction and the only certain thing in the portraits of these six women remains the solid presence of their gaze. Beauty is in the eye, it is said in the eye of the beholder.
