artistic series created by Minya
"TIMEscape" is a socio-political, cultural and anthropological study. This artistic project is a visual diary that reflects this historical moment capturing key current events in politics, culture, sport, environment and religion.
The artworks are created with innovative and personal technique - paintings made with natural pigments on a sleek plexiglas surface. The themes portrayed here cover some of the vital questions defining our epoch varying from human rights, respect and freedom of expression to migrations, new technologies, ecology, etc. With its numerous reflections "TIMEscape" participates in a complex artistic debate searching for potential answers to most urgent interrogations.
The character of human society, and of the nature in general, is such that it has the ability to adapt to changes. This ability to change and to direct its energy towards decisive changes is the essence of resilience.
Artists, just like philosophers, reflect upon the world, study the nature, ponder about the meaning of the human existence - but instead of using words to express their conclusions they use images, forms and colours. In the case of "TIMEscape" the source material for each painting is a newspaper photography that captures a significant moment or an event of the present.
In a multitude of daily information, the artist's choice is like a spotlight that focuses on one topic.
"No job today", "Hunger XXI", "Equality", "Oath of Office NY", "The raft of Lampedusa", "Now you see mee..."are the titles of some of the paintings in which the artist portrays the events metaphorically. Those events have been intentionally selected to narrate the epoch in which we live in a way that will sensitize and alert our society.
Name of the project "TIMEscape" represents the union of topic, artistic technique and philosophy.
