  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

The artist Ivana Petrova has the idea that everyday life is a stage. According to her, there are grandiose battles in which the main character is a shadow dancing on a shiny surface or a ray of light.

She works on the components of chiaroscuro and their wealth of nuances. These collide to create unexpected spaces and zones of light. Through chiaroscuro, contrasts collide to create an image.

The small events of everyday life are suddenly transformed into monumental battles of the grandiose reunion of light and shadow that pierce the brief moment to give it meaning and power, creating a solemn celebration of reality.
