“Behind the Rainbow”

  Kalina Brajkovska finds joy in defying the shape and form. This is a brief definition of Kalina’s art, of her space and colour and their contact on the canvas. In the time between us and the classical art approach, Kalina is the borderline between the two worlds- the one that has left and the one just coming. Her gesture is an expression of the contrast around us, a display similar to the world of Peter Pan. The segment of this exhibition is the full line of colour, liberated from its constriction, in the search for new forms of the psychology of the seen. The colours accentuate the character and time, creating forms of free figures. The painting itself brings a symbol and a sign depicting various types of signs summed in a visual appearance. The character of the painting shows the artist’s search for motives in her own aesthetical”backyard”. She is aware that the painting is a visible expression that shows the depths of the soul embodied in a personal state of art. The paintings are abstract echoes that are created in a glimpse of time, of events and feelings. The artistic expression does not connect the spectator to the perfection, but to open phenomenon that is the visual art. The joy, persistence and quality of Kalina’s art work leaves a lasting impression.   A recommendation to the audience: Go see thoroughly- there is more to it than meets the eye.   Gorjan Gjorgjiev   Kalina Brajkovska is a graduate of the Department of History of art and archeology at the Faculty of Philosophy in Skopje.
