About the Work

A grey cloud of energetic brush strokes in a combination of acrylic paint, marble dust, pigments and wax is held in place by an electric blue rectangle stamped over a passage of black in this abstract work on canvas. The layered surface of this powerful painting is polished into a rich satin finish. The lush, layered and boldly energetic paintings of Ivo Stoyanov have been collected in the US, Canada, Japan and Bulgaria. Stoyanov received a Masters degree in Mural Painting from the Fine Arts Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria (1990) and he has been commissioned to create major mural projects in the US, Bulgaria and Canada. "Some artists strive to involve their audience in a relationship that is more intimate than vision alone permits. Such artists create artworks which assume through their very essence the explicit form and content required of them to confer their unique meaning. But the most effective and compelling artworks of all are those that make explicit the fact that they are made to directly affect the spirit. So it is that Ivo Stoyanov takes my breath away. He coaxes our eyes and heads into that transcendental place, a simultaneously light and dark place, where he firmly believes that art, and especially art about the natural world, shakes hands with spirit. His extreme reduction to visual and pictorial essentials is responsible for that magical quality we can discern so clearly as negative space, an ideal notion to capture the essence of what makes a Stoyanov image so mesmerizing. It is the essence of absence. And the breath of the mind is what it takes away, submitting us to the silence of seeing." - Donald Brackett
