Chamber Exhibition, by Bulgarian artist, Nikolay Petkov
Every day the contemporary man encounters tens, even hundreds of designed images produced by the advertising, entertainment, politics, sports, and media industries. To accomplish their task of selling specific products or behavior these images must have an intensity that produces a fast, almost immediate impact on the not-so-innocent gaze of the spectator. As an artist concerned with the creation of stable and lasting image-objects, I decided to survey the reverse relation between an image’s intensity and its possible exposure time. The works in this exhibition are based on the assumption that reducing an image’s intensity increases its resistance. Thus pictures as reduced intensity images are more able to bear and attract a viewer’s multifaceted approach and recurring interest, allowing them to function as works of art today.
