Cabaret Mystique is the first solo show project, presenting nine paintings from the series named A Journey Backwards. Paintings have been placed inside a theatrical ambient, in which the synthesis between the theatre scene and fine arts places the protagonists of each painting in the role of an actor, inside a journey into the depths of the subconscious, forming their individual worlds together on the scene.

Presented series of paintings has been made during the three year period. Layers of oil applied to canvas are hiding several paintings behind the front one, that were growing and changing during the time, so the process of their creation would have the determined role of a record, a symbolic diary created through marks and strokes, haptic and visual traces in time.

Mystical journey through [sub]conscious images, constructed as a map of human’s soul, primarily inspired by the language and the symbolism of Tarot and Alchemical manuscripts, in each painting represents one of the protagonists that carries it’s own “code” of meaning, translated from personal experience into a universal story.
