Artist Statement GABRIELA PETKOVA

 

Since starting to make and participate in art professionally I have become more aware of my present socio- cultural context. Various indications of our reality’s crookedness impressed me.

Life In Net 9 by Gabriela Petkova

Since starting to make and participate in art professionally I have become more aware of my present socio- cultural context. Various indications of our reality’s crookedness impressed me. Today’s human has achieved lots of goals that are not exactly in his favor. Mass culture has a destructive influence on our lives, both literally and metaphorically. After decades of that impact, the relapse of this replaced reality of plastic dolls, feelings and vision is here. Most people go with the flow without asking questions.

I try to show this relapse of the present in my art. My series of works aim to observe different situations of my life; I want to represent the daily routine’s absurd moments and provoke questions among the public. I most admire artistic colleagues who work in a similar direction, because it is always a challenge to see a different point of view.
