The Introducing Series
Yana Dimitrova Introduced by Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria
This event took place on August 1st 2012
Introducing… is an initiative that creates a platform for emerging artists to be formally introduced by an advocate of their art and future career. Twice a month a new artist will be presented by their champion and will have an exemplary piece of work exhibited at The Window at 125.
To accompany the piece in the window space, a celebration of each artist and the formal introduction will take place in the form of a conversation between the champion and artist during an invitational evening. They are posted in its entirety every two weeks here on Vimeo and on rogersmithlife.com
Yana Dimitrova’s work investigates ideologies, morphing historical and nationalist ideas, exploring the physical and mental experience of transitory state.
Through paintings and installations, her focus is the significance of contemporary hopes for quality of life and better future. Yet Yana's work also creates a deceptive psychological space, often dealing with ideas of mass culture and desire. The results leave a spectator initially chasing some form of desire, only to be left floating in mid air a few feet from the edge of a cliff.
“In being given the opportunity to present an artist under these circumstances, I immediately drew my thoughts to Yana's work as being a perfectly snug fit because she has the talent to communicate a wide and diverse array of subjects by eloquently using few elements. Her process incurs a large amount of preparation, research, and investigation and often amounts communicating ideas and absorbing opinions. The resulting works, as such, incur even more thought and discussion; an outcome which Dimitrova seems to thoroughly relish.”
