It is with great pleasure that I introduce the work of Macedonian artist Dus han Georgievski at the Dar Al Funoon Gallery.

The new millennium has seen un upsurge in the work of talented group of Macedonian artists who have scorned convention in the quest to seek new creative horizons.

Dushan’s work typifies this shool of thought.His work glows with the passion of his Macedonian heritage and demands to be noticed.

I am delighted that his work is on show in Kuwait and believe that you will be very enthusiastic about Dushan’s vibrant and colorful paintings.

When I first time met with the paintings of Dushan Georgievski, a few years ago, I felt a special adventure. He is an author for away from the generally accepted and studied matters at the Academy if Fine Arts and is constantly transforming the explorations and knowledge giving them a shape of personnel artistic expression.

The realization of the deeds represents a pure work which brings him into a contact with the cosmos, the world spirit, the absolute, as well as the sounds of the nature in him. Some of his works give appearance of contours for which I am not sure whether they are some signs or letter characters which can remind of some animal or human forms of something undefined but still having a shape. In his work from which comes out a dreaming light I captured the forms which the author carries in himself since I could recognize them as unintelligible signs which sometimes appear in some very old forms.

The portraits are heavy, expressive, with thick lays of colour, deformed, tense to utmost limits but still real. I may admit that his work shows again that each artist has his truth which cannot be changed with the years and this truth become deeper, richer and more independent with the course of the time.

GLOW IN THE EYE

By the end of this century a lot of young Macedonian artists are creating works unburdened by the compulsion of a particular philosophical discourse or stylistic orders. Stepping out of the established artistic patterns they turn off the road, attracted by some different horizons in the distance.

Dushan Georgievski stands with his eyes wide open before the miracle of the world, like on the first day of its creation. In his paintings the colours set on fire in an immediate contact with the air; the landscape of Macedonia flickers as an apparition, the colours of the fields burnt by the sun are glistening, the mirror-still surface of the Ohrid lake glitters, the playful flames of the candles flicker in the darkness of the Macedonian churches, the underground waters break out of the depth of the earth, the mountain flowers bloom with wild passion, the light of Macedonian skies refracts. They are permeated with the red abd black threads of the Macedonian embroidery and carpets, with the gold of the folk gowns and with the precious stones of the jewellery. These are the fires which at night stories of the beginning of times are being told; around these fires dances of the second creation of the world are being played with animal masks on the face.

For Dushan Georgievski the art is a severe battle that is waged on the battlefield of the painting. The consequences of this collision between the eye and the world, the inner and the outer, the subjective, the individual and the collective are the blazing colours of Dushan Georgievski. His paintings are marked with the traces of the battle that ended without winners and losers because the only thing that matters to Georgievski is the creative process itself, where the only permanent and ontologically important aspect is the very transcendence – the act of creation of the world understood as an ever new confronting with the world and as an outgrowing of the reality.

THE PAINTINGS OF DUSHAN GEORGIEVSKI

Where does the inspiration and energy shown in your paintings derive from?

Am I the human being, every part of me is a, a wanderer in the circle where the repeating as a rule of the rules is laughing at me or behind the illusion of the circle is hidden the spiral of infinity?

EDUCATION

The scope of continuous learning is full of surprises; unhappy are the periods of life when the gift of learning and self-advancement is not embraced, by respecting them, we become more self-fulfilled, allowing us to simplify our own existence.

Continual research that feeds the artistic creativity, directs to perfecting and ennoblement of painter’s style and individuality, with which Dushan Georgievski is defending his creative rhetoric and art’s entity – the nucleus of subjective sensibility.

COMPOSITION

Through embracing our natural surroundings, its visual impact, its feeling and fascination, allows the artist to interpret his surroundings onto the canvas.

INSPIRATION

The artist focuses on different parts of tradition, from everyday life and the environment. Therefore, the artist’s interpretation, trough shape, form and fluid movement of forms, enables him to reflect cultural and ethic elements in his work.

THEME

Each painting symbolizes a mirror, which reflects aspects of the painter’s imagination and meditation. The paintings also echo areas of the artist’s subconscious, highlighting areas of fantasy, magic and a certain mystic.

FORM

Circles, squares, spirals are the beginning of form. We see an assortment of free forms that when simplified give the spectator an impression of infinite movement, without beginning of end.

COLOUR

The artist combines the colours within his paintings to provide an almost symphonic quality giving a quality of musical colour.

SPACE

The artist uses the space in a methodical manner, arranging layers of organic and inorganic, using imagination to combine dreams and reality.

EXPRESSION

The exhibited works reveal to us the artist’s values of human sensitivity and emotional adventure, works provide a window into the soul of the author.

ESTETIC

Beauty is only an established antithesis between a trivial physical shield and an internal passion.
