Sculptures by Emil Venkov – Bronze Testimonies Of Dialogues With Time. The materialized result of contemplations on life, fate and metamorphoses of people, time and the world. The result of self-analysis. The manifestation of the consciousness of personal securities and recognition of one´s own strength but also tumult, searching and desires. Creation as a way, circular line and the spiral that developes itself from the end of the 1960´s up to the present postmodern time. The work, the essence of which is a human topic
The Emil Venkov´s sculptures are a living organism with interior logic of sculptural composition and symbolic poetics of their human significances. The integration and disintegration of the matter of these plastic arts is fatal and magic. Baroque expression is vivified by the spirit of orient, exoticism and postmodernism. The synthesis of human and animal elements is multi-significant in their overlapping contrasts. Something almost barbarically ancient is humanized and cultivated by artistic spirit of today and vision of the future. The borders of time and styles of the past are joined in the fire of presence and it melts down the shape of the future world, human and people. The way to this world is edged by fragments of wings and staircase, fragments of feelings and recognition and colorful mosaic of memories and desires. Life, death and hope are hidden in a single statue in the same way, as they are present in every man´s fate. The newest Emil Venkov´s sculptures originate on the landmark of the wanted, possible and inevitable. Therefore, they are his destiny, his meaning and way of life.
