Vladimir Hristov

I am a painter who oscillates between two poles. On one side there is the process of deep soul searching through intuitive, fluid, organic painting, and on the other is the exploring the aesthetic possibilities offered by repetition and precision. Patterns conceived of color, lines, and simple geometrical shapes encompass a haptic quality of the image. The link between the two is the pursue of a distinct visual experience of multistable perception. The carefully calibrated compositions of my works invite you to consider the planes of reality from which the works originate. The perception is best described as an experience that evokes a sense of otherworldliness.

I intend for my paintings to be open to interpretation and to evolve and grow with time and different audiences.

I work with acrylic, oil, charcoal, pens, pencils, tape, and my own hands.
