On the surface of the soup, the broth stains are encapsulated in ovals of amber clear sea in a swamp of dull blue, with shades of orange-pink at sunset. The spills slide one after the other, and the liquefied flesh is chased away when moved. Miniature islands are fed to the surface, around which a water membrane is stretched – compact solid particles that are not dissolved in the mass. We swallow the universe in portions with some bread to find it again. Late, just before dark, the magenta descends smoothly to cyan and darkens, stars shine and slowly thicken into pale protein swirls. The endless sky envelops us like a small dot and sucks through us.
Sasho Stoitsov mixes bright and penetrating universes from all those condensed and clotted emotions and sediments that have accumulated recently in a period of anticipation, which has been painfully stretching to the unknown. These bursts released on the canvas are fixed at one point and unfold in all past and potentially possible processes. This is the “laundry” of the last period, as the author himself says. The element of chance is embodied in the conventionality of art on a rectangular background and marked in the corners by artificial elements. If we trust the terminology, we can use “painting” about these works, but this concept has specific expectations that are undesirable.
Sasho Stoitsov does not trust any media, although he returns to the painting and the object, they are always completely different and deeply internally motivated by the situations and emotions to which they give an image. The only media characteristic of the author in the exhibition can be recognized in the colorful three-dimensional figures made of light materials, known from his previous exhibitions. Even fixed in the simplicity of form, light sculptures constantly stimulate flows of positivism. They are like dropped children – noisy and colorful, always changing the aura of the space they inhabit. During his exhibition in the water tower are a source of spontaneity, freedom and pure joy of color, which pierces the geological layers of all theoretical constructs, doubts and fears of the “post” epoch-making situation.
