Maria Astadjov - A Work In Progress


Maria Astadjov - A Work In Progress
Defining an Artistic Perspective
What is the basis for the bonds we form with others? How do we connect to our own inner selves and what do we find there? Are human beings driven primarily by passion and desire? Maria Astadjov is inspired to create images and forms that define these perspectives and capture them in shades that reflect a range of emotion, from ecstasy to despair.
How do we identify with the art we are exposed to? Maria Astadjov steers the imagination of viewers toward an internal source that transcends thought - that only likes and dislikes. The inspiration for her art is spontaneous, yet its development, lengthy. She methodically works to awaken our collective daydreams of, longing and solitude; union and isolation, apprehension and release.
The Process
Although her materials and methods vary, her process is focused and constant. So consistent, in fact, that she uses precise points within music to maintain the tone of a particular painting. Inspired by an eclectic array of songwriters that include icons Bob Dylan, Sting, Dire Straits, Sade, U2 and others she ensures the integrity of a work in progress by picking up where she left off in a song to organically recreate the mindset reserved for each piece. Each musical composition becomes linked to the preservation of her active creative process. When contemporary art combines this degree of sensory and conceptual commitment, the result is a visual form of intimate verse, disseminated through a universal interpretative language.
Formal Training / Work Experience / Exhibitions
Following extensive study and the completion of a Masters of Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria, Maria Astadjov travelled throughout Europe until she crossed the Atlantic to settle in Montreal in 1990. She quickly established her successful career in graphic design and contributed to Emmy award-winning animation developed for Cinar, the notable children's series' producers of television hits that include Caillou and Arthur.The years spent regulating her innate artistic passion only served to refine and fully develop her distinctive style. The completed works of Maria Astadjov range from startling black and color ink on paper, to illustrious mixed media and acrylic paintings on canvas. Exhibitions include showings at galleries across Quebec, New York, California, Europe and Japan.

The Unseen Hand(s) at work in the realm of spirit, The True Self in the center heals, invites, and integrates parts of her own fragmented self, which include all who suffer and Love. This is the ethereal plane of consciousness both collective and individual, while the figure below on the "physical" plane (or earth?) at first seems in distress and pain but is actually bending over helping someone which is why we are here. Totally silent and possibly mute as if to say she who knows does not speak, and she who speaks does not know.
