Nadya Peovska – By the Beach
Peovska doesn’t use conventional techniques in order to create depth in her paintings. Her figures are overexposed and the scenes are washed out in a way that creates flat planes of colour, without reducing figures to strictly two-dimensional shapes. In By the Beach, a lounging figure is covered in striped fabric, which stands out against the pixelated dots layered on the background. This technique forces the landscape back in space and subdivides the painting in a way that’s both realist, and surreal.
