7 April - 24 April
FAWW Gallery is proud to present ‘Fractals‘, an exhibition by Brussels-based Bulgarian artist Boris Pramatarov. Scenes of cascading action meet hyper-detailed patterning in Pramatarov‘s work and render subtle shifts between figure and ground, forcing the eye to adjust as it moves around imagery existing on multiple planes. In this show, the effect of the artist’s work is likened to that of fractals, wherein impressive patterns are found to recur at progressively small scales, as can be found in the organic process of crystal growth.
The hallucinogenic creation of worlds — and worlds within worlds — that is compounded into a single drawing, is both Pramatorov‘s style and signature, as the artwork of his father’s will attest. Citing the artist’s experience of growing up immersed in the incidental details of his father’s magical, illustrated worlds, ‘Fractals‘ also features a select number of pieces by Pramatarov’s father. In so doing, the exhibition additionally explores an inter-generational artistic impulse, and the way time and context can so dramatically influence a work of art.
