"I often think how difficult it is nowadays, amidst a whirlwind of visual diversity,
bombarded by ever-changing trends, genuine or fake, to listen to your own voice and
to find your own unique expression. Such thoughts are coming to my mind as I stand
before Yana Petkova’s works. I remember her first creations while she was still in
college, then her contributions to many exhibitions, mainly collages, as well as the
ARTE gallery-organised exhibition of the family she belongs to, a family we associate
with the unforgettable and illustrious Prof. Nayden Petkov.
A fusion of natural talent and creative energy, this exhibition’s selection reveals a world
with distinctive personal characteristics: unmistakable emotionality expressed in subtle
nuances, a sense for the pulse of colours and textures, and in some cases a not entirely
outgrown decorativism in the form, possibly a trace of her academic background. This is
precisely where I see Yana Petkova’s future: in expanding these artistic and spiritual
horisons and leaving her own unique mark there."
Ass. Prof. Ruža Marinska
