THE BLUSHING VALLEY
A SOLO EXHIBITION BY GERY GEORGIEVA
9 DECEMBER 2017 – 11 FEBRUARY 2018
Valleys are productive regions. Cultivated lands. Valleys are warm, lush, sheltered areas. Every so often, at dusk they seem to suck the sluggish, hot and heavy sky down their sloped walls as the sun retracts its rays, then you might say the valley is melancholic.

Domus Aurea, or the “Golden House” was the name of a palace built by Emperor Nero in the heart of the ancient Rome.

Frescoed walls, stuccoed ceilings, semi-precious stones and ivory veneers, above all – golden leafing was part of to the extravagant decoration.

12 APRIL – 18 JUNE 2017
Last year, I loosely messaged few of you, proposing to meet. Soon we sat together – spending a few evenings on the benches in front of Crystal Club, later gathering in Dimitar’s studio in Plovdiv. Fine, let’s do a show, you told me, but all together, as a group. And, we’d call ourselves “Provincialists”.
