Sara Christova is an emerging contemporary painter currently based between Cardiff, Wales, and Sofia, Bulgaria where she was born and raised. Her work features gently surrealist landscapes and compositions that explore themes of introspection and the processes of dreaming and memory.
"My paintings explore themes of introspection and observation through visual examination of dreaming and memory. By deliberately or subconsciously analysing my environment and then deconstructing my experience, I create compositions built upon the echo of the visible. My recent paintings bounce between fauvist episodes, modernist scenes, increasingly surreal elements, hyperbole and allegory, where the most common denominator is reflection. "
"Sara Christova captures moments within the mist and buzz of the night. Light on bodies as they move through the club.
Light through a window pane as you smoke a cigarette."
