Vladinsky - Observer - HOFA Gallery
Romanian visual artist, Vladinsky, renowned for his signature abstract style of portraiture displayed his acclaimed ‘Observer’ series at HOFA Gallery in London. His captivating series brings forth the idea that in order to appreciate life, we must slow down and consciously observe the world around us.
Living in these fast-paced times, it is easy to fall into the mundane motions of day to day life. Vladinsky’s art reminds its observers that one must decide to create the life they want to live, and enjoy the process while doing so.
The exhibition titled ‘Fragments’ features new and previously unreleased works from his lauded Observer series. First launched in 2019, the portraits in this collection reflect a strong philosophical turn in Vladinsky’s work as they mirror the dysfunction of modern life. Their elongated profiles, vibrant colors, and inchoate faces, set against dark and seemingly blank backgrounds, are as mesmerizing as they are unsettling, provoking viewers to a new and profound understanding of themselves.
“‘Fragments’ is a culmination of the journey of growth and evolution I embarked on in 2020. I really slowed down and this gave me a chance to appreciate life. Life is not all about rushing from one thing or one experience to the other. We need to slow down or stop to appreciate life and what is around us. In society we must observe and it is through this observation that we then choose how to create our path.”
