The Window, Sofia Art Gallery, 2005


I could not help it but share with you (since you are here now) this wonderful exhibit, which i attended in Sofia, possibly during my first visit back to this can-be-wonderful city, where my heart stayed behind when i left in 1991 .. It was named “The Window” and featured works by XX century fine art masters from Bulgaria – some big names in there

The selected works here, which i scanned recently, represent the works i particulalrly liked there, works which capture so well the light of Sofia : winter light, nightlight, the city light in general – the way i recall it in the 80s, and even in the late 70s, the way i want it to be when i go back one day ..

I can write pages on the works below, but i will not – over to the works to do the talking ..

Finally, keep mouse over image to see image title and details ..
