An exhibition of digital imagery by Peter Boyadjieff
“Peter Boyadjieff’s conceptual digital imagery allows us to appreciate the unique poetry of his oeuvre; the impact of each image is amplified in the context of a body of work that relentlessly pulls us into a new relationship with the ordinary…For the artist "Allegories provides us with an informal vision about the duality of our relation with the external world." Thus, we are offered new interpretations of our "daily condition" that combine a balanced aesthetic elegance with an almost surrealistic humour.
Boyadjieff participates in a very contemporary reconsideration of the meaning of the photographic image. New technology provides ample means through which artists may manipulate their images in exploration of this issue. Overlaying, superimposition, the marriage of several worlds into one-this is the aesthetic of our time. Boyadjieff brings to this debate his own unique talents: an edgy eastern European sensibility and classical training.
In "Evolution", for instance, a delicate bird’s nest, rendered in romantic sepia tones, assumes not a gentle circular form but what appears to be an aberration of nature - a square. The composition is flawless, the humour deft.
The artist, originally from Bulgaria, studied art and design at the Nikolay Pavlovich University of Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria and pursued further specialization in Computer Graphics at the Institut de Création Artistique et de Recherche en Infofraphie ICARI – Montreal, Canada. He has worked in a number of art-related fields as creative and art director, including corporate identity development and integration of public art in architecture.
Boyadjieff still exhibits in both solo and group exhibitions in Europe and in North America.”
