From sublime to ridiculous

Structura Gallery in Sofia presents online exhibition of drawings by Nina Kovacheva

The personages in Nina Kovacheva's drawings from 2020 seem perfectly innocent on the surface - children, comic book heroes, familiar sci-fi characters - all engaged in ordinary activities and games.

The personages in Nina Kovacheva's drawings from 2020 seem perfectly innocent on the surface - children, comic book heroes, familiar sci-fi characters - all engaged in ordinary activities and games. However, these drawings are permeated with global angst. The portrayed emotions and drama belie the small size of the 29cm-by-39cm sheets of paper. The characters have been converted into vessels for intense emotions. Child innocence is the prism through which the fears brought on by the modern reality are made that much more obvious.

The exhibition From Sublime to Ridiculous can be viewed by 10 June here.
