Abstract 01 by Silvia Haralambova


Silvia Haralambova is a contemporary Bulgarian artist working in the field of fine and applied art. Silvia has inherited the love to art from her grandfather who was a textile designer at the textile factories all around the country.

Since childhood and school years Silvia has loved to create different art works, including having painted aquarelles, pastels, sketches and dolls from a variety of natural materials. Silvia then began to do woven sweaters, jackets and woven wall hangings made of natural materials, some of them combined with carved wood.

As an artist and a person, acting with senses and feelings, Silvia would say that art works speak more than words. She let’s her wondrous creations talk about themselves. They alone can show the ways and things which inspire and give Silvia the inspiration to do the works.

Some of the roots of Silvia’s inspiration can be found in the traditional Bulgarian folklore and ancient cultures of tribes and nations – some passing by and others settling down on the territory, but somehow all of them leaving a trace after their presence. Silvia is trying to unite all this multicultural and ethnical diversity in her works of art using symbols and other specificities, reconstituting them through her vision.

Further, nature plays a great importance in Silvia’s art as well. Being convinced that every artist needs to visit a wide variety of new and interesting places on earth in order to provoke, enrich and develop their art life, she is constantly aiming to broaden her artistic horizon and to develop herself farther as an artist.

In that connection Silvia have been participating in Artist-in-Residence Programs in different countries like Spain, Austria, Ukraine, Ireland and her works of art have been shown in galleries in USA, Canada and Europ

Original painting ‘Abstract 01’ is part of a series of art creations which have been inspired from Silvia’s favourites, the Aegean Sea and Ionian Sea, spread on both sides of Greece.

Cracked sea mussel shells from the Aegean Sea are glued on to stretched canvas  and covered in layers of acrylic paint.  Matt varnish is applied to protect the painting.

Size: 30cm x 30cm

What particularly has always affected Silvia’s inspiration is the constant interaction between the vivid colours of the shining sun, the multiple shades of the blue and the green of the sea, the game of the sun and moon light and the countless stars over the sea surface – day and night, at dawn and at twilight; the sea in calmness and in gale, the bright endless horizon and sky; the green pine forests along the coast, dashing towards the water; the unique picturesque curve of the rainbow after the falling of the rain ….

This whole atmosphere itself inevitably induce my internal and impulsive urge to transmit this special state of mind, feelings and sensations onto canvas in a kind of unifying, abstractive manner.

In its entirety, Silvia would say that all her works of art in this series have one and the same title but with specific variations. Silvia would rather let the observers find titles on their own, depending on their perceptions and emotions at the instant of viewing the work.
