Plamen Yordanov

Artist Statement of Plamen Yordanov

I share the idea of an art that creates new reality instead of offering its conventional model. I want to provoke the birth of view that goes beyond the boundary of reality itself. Viewpoints which stress an order that exists "a priory" in nature and can be developed again and again… Aspect that makes the work to exist as a signal, giving the onlooker a chance to go deep into his/her life experience and mind. Universal signals to which the individual responds in a unique manner and creates his/her own reality.
